Check for power to the fan when hot. You can check it cold by turning the a/c on. If no power,check the fan relay for power.

98 Honda civic cx over heating when stopped in traffic - I went thru cooling system, replaced hoses, thermostat, fan, radiator cap. After that stated to overheat on freeway after about 40 miles. pulled...


Unplug the fan on sensor. It should have one green wire and one black wire. Use a paper clip and jump the two wires. Turn the key to the run position, the engine does not need to be running. Does the fan come on? If not check the green wire for 12 volts and the black wire for ground. If there is no ground than run a new ground wire. If the is no power check the heater/air conditioning fuse in the under dash fuse block. If there is power and ground make sure both the cooling fan fuses are good and both the cooling fan relays are good.

2004 vw jetta is over heating. already checked thermostat and sensors. any suggestions? 2.0 engine


Is the fan kicking on? Radiator fan! When engine gets hot, radiator fan should kick on under the hood.
If it does, then there is a blockage in the radiator preventing it from circulating the coolant to dump the heat. Get a Rad flush.

If the fan does not kick on, then check the fan fuse and relays, usually found in an electrical distribution box under the hood. Consult your owners manual for its location and specific fuses / relays.
Possible bad fan too.. but disconnect the fan at the plug in the wiring, and test supply wire for voltage, when engine is above normal temperture.

Fans are not kicking on after 10 minutes at idle, 40 amp fuse is ok doubtful that relays are bad could it be the sensor?


If the engine isn't getting hot enough to turn the fan on, it won't come on. You can hot wire the fan motor to the battery to make sure it works. If the car is overheating, check the temp sender and the fan relay if the fan checks out good.

Have changed fan relay and temperature sensor fans still will not


Heather, the radiater fan relay is solid state, mounted behind the facia
on a bracket drivers side, right of left headlamp assembly, feed by fuse 24, 40 amp in the pdc, box, I'm assuming thats what your talking about, the coolant sensor signals the PCM ,when temp hits 212*F, tells the solid state relay to turn the fans on, check the ground for the fans, should be near the relay. if by chance you have no air lock in the cooling system, after the pump was replaced. Belt routing ok, was this done by experinced help. GOOD LUCK, RDJRP

I have 1996 Dodge caravan and the fan's come on and stay on


By chance are you saying the fans stay running when you turn off the engine, the problem is with the radiater fan relay, the points are probably sticking together, it's in the pdc box under the hood, power comes from fuse 4, 40 amp, through the relay, then to the fans, relay is controlled by the engine controller (pcm). just flip the cover and find the right relay, pull it out when they wont shut off, if it quits, swap it anouther relay from the pdc box, and test it again, fans come on at 212*F and shut off at 199-202*F. if the fans stay running while engine is running, you might have a coolant sensor issue, or cooling system issue. If you need more assistance, let me know. GOOD LUCK, RDJRP

Radiator cooling fans do not come on


Dont listen to the first guys response. The thermostat simply opens and closes with heat to allow the coolant to flow faster or slower through the engine block. What controls the fan is the coolant temp sensor. At a certain temperature it sends a signal to the fan relay to switch on and that in turn sends the power to the fans. If either of those are bad the fans wont work.

I have changed my thermastat, but my car keeps getting hot if its just idling or i am driving slow. The fan does not seem to be kicking on. is it a relay or the fan?


Hi my name is mike ! when your just idling your fan should come on after a few minutes ,if the temp is going up but no fan kick on then you have a blown fuse to the fan or a relay not working ,or a bad fan possibly .hope this helps ,let me know if you have more questions
