A/C fuses are 9 and 20 located in the glove box. If the auxilary fan is not coming on that will affect ac as well the fuses for that are 7, 22 (in glove box) and fuse 76 which is behind glove box. Does the compressor come on at all? Does the ac switch light come on?

My fan stopped

If you are referring to the cooling fan, first check 5A FUSE 16 and 30A FUSE 41 in the front power distribution box. If the fuses are OK, the temperature switch, the pressure switch, the speed relay(s) or the auxiliary fan motor(s) could be at fault.

Hi Fausto, The problem with your vehicle could be the activating relay, the fuse, the fan activating temperature sensor, or a defective fan. As this is unusual for BMW, Keep in mind that the fan will only operate when the engine reaches the required temperature, not all the time. Regards John

Electric cooling fans not working at any time while vehicle is running causing temp gauge to read high.while vehicle is moving temp gauge will go to soon as you stop temp gauge begins to...

{: ) You didn't mention the model of your vehicle. Anyway, I admire your way of observation, and I'm sure you got the analogy by now. When the car is running, the engine rpm is higher, and so with the water pump, plus the wind velocity passing thru the radiator fins, can give sufficient engine cooling without the electric cooling fans. But when your vehicle stops, like sitting on a traffic, the engine rpm is lower, and so with the water pump, and there ain't enough wind to help.
This is why the electric cooling fans are very important in maintaining engine temperature at normal levels in any driving conditions.
Basically, the cooling fans are controlled by the engine control module (ECM). The ECM monitors input from various engine sensors and then will give an output signal based on its programmed instructions. The output signals will energize the corresponding fan relays, be it high or low speed.
You can start by checking first the easy ones like the fuses and relays. Cooling fans usually have square top transparent windows. Check the the underhood fuseblock label to locate. Might as well check all fuses to be sure.
Check the cooling fan relays for signs of overheating, and also for loose terminal seating.
Check the cooling fan if stuck, and also check the connectors if burned or melted. To rule out a defective cooling fan motor, you can check for continuity, or you may apply direct voltage to the two wires on each fan.
The mostv frequent cause of cooling fan malfunction is on the fuses, relays, and connectors.

What could cause my 1993 bmw 740il to overheat

Make sure you have the right amount of coolant in the vehicle. Make sure your fans are running correctly. If they are not running, check the fuse. If all this checks out, it may be a bad thermostat.

Fan not working on 323 99 bmw just replaced resistor pack(?) and still not working. Waspretty sure based on info/common problem this wolud work

Yes, that would be my first choice as well.

Brown is ground on just about all german based vehicles.

Run 12v directly to the motor. w/o the resistor pack it will go to it's highest speed. if it doesn't run, motor bad.

Figured you've checked the fuse 1st. but worth mentioning. may as well replace the relay because it's easier than running 12v to the motor.

So you've run 12v to the motor, checked fuse, replaced relay, and it still doesn't run. Wait a minute......which fan is this? The interior fan or auxillary cooling fan in front of the condenser? How the heck can I give repair advice when I don't know which fan it is?

Nevermind. State problem more clearly.

Have you checked the fuse box as it appears to have blown a fuse that sends power to fan and airconditioner.

Heater blower not working

It sounds like your cabin air filter has stopped up common problem on these cars. You have to remove the glovebox to get to it. If this filter stops up, your fan will be running on high but hardly anything will come out of the vents.

1992 Volvo 940 heater/AC fan will no longer blow anything out

could be a fuse they are located behind the ash tray. could be the fan motor you can test this by finding the connection for the fan motor and connecting a positive and negative wire to the positive and negative on the connector. it could also be a relay or loose or bad connector . start at the fuses check all of them. then check to see if your fan works then check all your connections if that is not it try to see if any of your relays look burned. im not sure whicjh one controls the fan controls. good luck if you need more help or specifics i will look into it more i have a friend with one of these vehicles that i can look at.
