We overheated our 1995 buick skylark when the atifreeze leaked out. Now it won't start unless we by-pass the switches. The fan checks out ok. What should we check next?

    Thank you for your help! We ended up switching out the cooling fan relay and the fan still didn't come on until we uplugged the coolant sensor. Oh, and I didn't know it was going to take off like an airplane and chase me back until it unplugged itself! This picture is me holding the flying fan. ha! :)

1995 Buick Skylark, where is the box with the radiator fan relay in it located?


4d6d3003-b7cd-4c62-a0d4-47967f888842.gifHere is where most of your relays are, there is another relay box located inside the car on the passenger side under the dash. Sometimes youll have to take the glove box out to find the second relay box. This should have a cover on it sense most people do not know of this relay box its usually untouched. The cover will tell you what relay does what. But here is a pic with the relay center under the hood and should help you out.

Radiator fan will not run resulting in overheating


Probably thermoswitch located either on bottom tank of radiator or thermostat housing Check by jumping switch plug with a wire (with ignition ON )and check if fan starts otherwise check fuse

1995 buick skylark can't get fans to work


it sounds like the fan is out on it you will probably need to replace it and its not hard to do three screws and a plug and then you put the new one in in its place.

1995 Buick skylark overheating


there could be several resons for the overheating:


1. water pump doesn't circulate properly

2. Bad thermostst

3. fan clutch/radiator fan are non operative

4. relay is bad

5. clogged system

6. clogged radiator

to check on the the specific problem first power wash the radiator to remove bugs and road grime. they block the air from flowing over the fins and coil of the radiator thus not allowing the heat to disapate from the coolant. next install the good thermostat and make sure the spring part of the thermostat is facing down.next fill the radiator with coolant all the way up to the neck of the radiator and leave the cap off. next turn your heat setting to max fan and max heat temp. start the vehicle let the vehicle heat up and keep watch for the the flow of coolant soon as it goes down you should feel the upper radiator hose get real hot this indicates that the thermostat is working. now if you have a fan clutch for a conventional rear drive vehicle once the temp reaches 180 degrees the fan should no longer free spin it should start spinning faster if it is working like it should. if you have a transverse mounted engine for front wheel drive you will have a fan unit mounted to the radiator. these should be spinning when the engine reaches temp of 180 degrees. If they are not open the junction box and located the fan relay. switch out the relay with another one( I use the a/c clutch relay)if the fans kick on it's the relay that is bad, if it doesn't then either it's the fan unit itself or the temp sensor on the fan unit.now after you have done all these checks and everything is in order check the hoses going to the heater core at the fire wall they should be hot to the touch if they are not you have a clog at the by-pass of the water pump or manifold inlet.if the hoses are hot and you still have no heat then it's a bad valve inside the cab near the heatercore or a defective climate control module. check the fuse first to see that it is good.after the engine has been running a while the level of coolant should have gone down and then refill to proper level and replace cap after all of this if you still don't have heat and it overheats you have a bad water pump.... please rate this thanks

Overheating 1993 Buick Skylark


it could be a fuse or fan relay, or a stuck thermostat, i will recomend to aply stright power to radiator fan to see if works, if don't replace fan and fuse, but if does, then it might be the thermostat, one very easy way to test the cooling fan system is by unpluging the coolant sensor with the car runing, if fan come on whit car runing and sensor disconected, the the system is ok, and might be a bad sensor, or stuck closed or open thermostat. please leave feedback if this take care of your problem
