Cooling fan starts when switch on the engine, and the fan stops when i switch off the engine


cooling fan mainly turns on when your ECM senses that your engine is getting hot and there is no wind cooling down the coolant to cool your engine it usually kicks on when your idling or driving at low speeds to pull in the wind to cool the coolant. the fans don't need to turn on when the engine is off

Fan sensor is not working.


You need to change the relay and the temp sensor switch. If you have done that the reason it's not coming on is probably because the coolant is not getting hot enough to cause it to come on. Let me explain. The coolant fan when the A/C is off is activated by the coolant fan switch. The switch closes when coolant temperature is over 238F completing a path to ground through the coolant fan relay windings. The relay contacts then close and voltage is applied to the coolant fan. When the coolant temperature drops to 214F, the switch opens and the coolant fan stops. In A/C equipped vehicles, the A/C control head completes a path to ground for the coolant fan relay whenever the A/C is on no matter what the temperature. Voltage is then applied to the coolant fan. Essentially, the coolant fan switch is by-passed when the A/C is on, which is why the fan works whenever you turn the A/C on. Now, if the fan does not kick in when the coolant temperature is over 238F but works when the A/C is on, the problem has to be the coolant fan switch or the connectors or wiring to the CFS.

Lincon LS 2006 5600 kl coolent fan runs in winter when the temp gage is normal the radeator is not hot.The fan is very noisy, the engin has ben bled of air. The car has ben looked at by Lincon dealer said...


the fan has a low and high speed or some have 2 fans. It comes on low speed when the temp starts to climb or when you turn the a/c, defrost, or mix mode (it turns on when the a/c compressor kicks on. If the temp of coolant gets to about 230 F, then the high speed kicks in.

What is your doing? Very nosiy sounds like high speed. Could be a defective ECT - engine coolant temp sensor.

94' Caprice Fans not turning on to cool motor = overheating motor


Do this test with the key in run but engine off unplug the ECT (engine coolant temp.) sensor, if the fans turn on (does this by default) the system is ok, if not then check the Fan relay. Also look for burning of the electrical connections to the cooling fans.

Here's a wierd cooling fan issue


Thats not too weird as the car would kick on the fans at full speed when it detects a problem with the sensor. Your ECU is not reading the sensor properly and needs to be checked by Ford. I hope this helps you.
