Why isn't my fan working? My car is overheating while driving and the fan doesn't kick on to cool engine down, even while driving.

There should be a fan relay and it may be protected with a fuse. There are temperature sensors which sense the water is hot and make the relay work.

Car's fan does not come on

try unpluging fan and apply power & ground to fan directly if fan runs you will need cooling fan relay

Coolant fan wont come on

Could be the temp sensor, low coolant, or the fan relay.
The temp sensor tells the computer how hot the engine is and the computer grounds the fan relay. It should come on around 230 degrees.

The fan of my radiator is not turning on i REPlace the radiator the houses the two sensor of the tempture but still is not working and also replace the thermostat

Its an electrical problem, either the fan itself is no good or one of the controlling relays are not closing. Check all your fuses carefully, one may be the power circuit to the relay (there usually is no fuse to control the fan). Check power and ground at the fan itself using a test light. with engine running disconnect the coolant temperature sensor, fan should come on immediately. If you have power and ground the fan motor is no good. If no power reconnect the fan and go to the electrical underhood center. Swap the fan relays one at a time with another same relay (try ABS or A/C one, not starter relay). If it runs you have a bad relay.

Radiator fan always on, won't turn off unless unplug battery


Either it is hot wired straight from the battery or the fan relay got stuck.

Locate Fan Relay in engine compartment fuse box and try switching it with another one of the same part no. If fan stops, replace Relay.

98 Mustang v6 - no AC

Make sure the radiator pressure cap is the correct one and that the hose is not soft--check the lower hose and heater hoses for softness as well. They should be firm, but not hard or cracking. The temperature sensor is reporting normal operating temperature, so it and the thermostat are working correctly (hot water would blow out of the radiator if it were stuck). Check the cooling fan for free turning and no noise. Check it's grounding connection. Check the fuse box for blown fuses to the fan and to the A/C compressor. Make sure all the relays and fuses are firmly pressed into their sockets. Check the A/C compressor clutch winding for resistance--should not read infinity. Does the blower motor for the heater/A/C run when either is turned on? The A/C switch on the dash may be defective.
