Why is the cooling fan always running when car gets warm on my 2003 hyundai elantra


It is easier to cool a warm engine that to cool an engine at almost over heat condition. So manufacturers run the fan as soon as the engine gets to operating temperature and that gives the cooling system more control of the heat in the system

How did you know when the cooling fans are not working


You may have one conventional belt-driven fan with a thermal clutch and the other electric or, both could be electric on your car.
The cooling fan that operates during non-AC operation (just a running engine) if electric, will be controlled by a thermal switch in the lower radiator tank and may not turn on at all unless the engine is warmed up. The belt-driven fan should be turning at some speed all the time if the engine is running and at much higher speed with a hot engine.
The fan that cools mostly when the AC is operating won't run under normal operation but may turn on in hot weather (or when the engine is under heavier loads) even without the AC operating.
Checking them would require having a warmed-up engine and the AC turned on. Both fans regardless of type should be turning then.

Engine coolant fans staying on, no codes, engine takes excesive time to warm up in cold weather. All fluid levels good

The cooling fan won't come on. I have power to the fan but it won't come on.I put power directly to the fan motor and it turns on. I have put a new fan relay and still nothing.


Is the engine running hot? The cooling fan won't come on unless the engine temperature rises to a point for the sensor to activate the cooling fan. Did this happen also back in warm weather, or has it just started now in the winter?

Chances are it simply hasn't warmed up enough to kick the fan in. It may well be running while you're driving, but you'd never be aware of it.

I have 95 Chevy Lumina. March 2010 I had water pump, head gaskets, intake gaskets, thermostat replaced. Unfortunately I am having same problems as I did before all these parts were replaced. How can this...


Was the car over heating before the water pump and head gaskets were replaced? Putting in a new Radiator will make it run even colder.and take even way longer than the one hour it is already taking to warm up.The computer in the car commands the engine cooling fan On/Of at a predetermined temperature.It receives this data from monitoring engine sensors such as the engine coolant temperature sensor.So if it is defective and the computer is not recognising the defect it thinks that the engine is running hot when it is realy running cold and will command that the cooling fan be on.Resulting in the fan running in 24-7 as you put it. If you want the engine to warm up faster and the cooling fan to operate normaly then I would replace the engine coolant temperature sensor and the relay for the fan circuit as well. If you need to talk to me further about this you can use the reply box below. Please let me know how this goes for you and I hope this is usefull for you. Good Luck and have a good XMASS.

My 2002 Outback A/C is not working correctly. It runs cold while I am driving but turns warm as soon as I slow down or stop. I just had it recharged but no change.


Your 2002 outback has two cooling fans mounted on the radiator, one cooling fan runs only when the engine requires cooling and the other fan only comes on when the A/C is in use or if the engine temp requires extra cooling. The A/C cooling fan should come on almost at the same time when the A/C has been turned on (if the car is up to operating temp), if it is not coming on you will not move enough air through the condenser to remove the heat the A/C coolant (freon) has collected from inside the cabin. Check your fans operation.
