The sensor for the fan is normally located close to the thermostat housing and near the temperature sender unit . It has a square looking plug with 2 wires from it.

Will a bad temp sensor make a car run hot


a temp sensor only monitors what the engine temp is it will not cause the engine to overheat or run hot. check to make sure the rad cooling fan is working if not it could be a bad fan motor, temp sensor for the computer to turn on the fan or a fan relay. there are 2 temp sensors on motors. one is for the gage or light the other is to tell the computer to turn on the cooling fan.

Radiator fan not running while car is on


There could be a number of reasons why the fan is not coming on. First of all, it will not come on until the temp reaches a level necessary to have it on. In addition, if the a/c is on, it should be running at all times while the a/c is on. If your car has a/c, turn it on and check to see if radiator fan is running. If not check the following, coolant temp sensor, radiator fan relay fuse, radiator fan motor, coolant fan switch and temp sensor. Start with the easiest, the fuse and work from there. Most switches and sensors can be tested with a simple ohmeter.

Where is 2003 buick century sensor located


Before you did any repairs to address your overheating problem, did you check to see if your fans were working at all ? One way to check if they are working is by starting your vehicle and turning the A/C on, they should automatically start running. If they do not, begin to perform diagnosis to that electric circuit.

Check and make sure coolant level is good, also check that elec. radiator fan motor is working, fan motor should come on right away with a/c on, if it don't more then likely bad radiator fan motor, if it comes on, then we know fan motor is good, turn a/c back off, fan motor should come on at about 220 deg. if it does after engine is warm, with engine off feel both upper and lower radiator hoses, careful, if thermostat is working right both will be hot, if only one is hot, replace thermostat, if fan motor did not come on with a/c off start checking coolant temp. sensor.Hope this was very helpful.

Radiator fan not coming on. i replace the 2 relays and the one sensor. what else could it be. i can make the fan work. just unplug from the sensor.


Check fluids. If you are excessively low, the sensor in the radiator will not have anything to read. If the coolant level is OK, you may have a defective thermostat. If the thermostat is defective, this will prevent the hot coolant from inside the motor from reaching the sensor in the radiator..

Temperture gauge show's hot after a one minutes running


Most likely the heat sensor.
Ensure you replace the gauge sensor with the correct type to suit your gauge.
(dont confused it with the overtemp alarm switch sensor).
Check you've got the right sensor by shorting it out to frame/ground and observing the gauge movement.

Thermal temp switch usualy located at the bottom of the radiator or the temp gauge sensor is sending wrong temp signal to gauge. Have you put radiator thermometer in radiator to test that its all working when its supposed to?
