SOURCE: 2004 Jaguar x type electric radiator fans not operating

check out with your dealer as you might have a recall to fix this problem.
XT303-S932
X-TYPE
DATE 01/03
MODEL
2002-03 MY
X-TYPE
VIN
C00294-C91719
Overheating - Cooling Fans Inoperative - Replace Module Prior To Retailing - Service Action S932
This Service Action Applies to Vehicles That Have Not Been Retailed
Issue:
The cooling fan module on X-TYPE vehicles may fail under certain circumstances. There are various root causes but the design and quality of the printed circuit board within the cooling fan module are the most significant. The NAND gate used in the circuit is detective causing multiple failure modes, this can result in high engine temperature and overheating due to the cooling fans not operating.
A change has been implemented in production from VIN C91720. On these vehicles a 'Philips' printed circuit board has been used that has a modified voltage spike protection strategy.
Action:
To prevent customers from experiencing this issue, install the latest specification cooling fan module on 2002-03 MY X-TYPE vehicles within the above VIN range that have not been retailed.
PROCEDURE
1. Install new cooling fan module (see Workshop Manual, JTIS CD ROM, section: 303-03, SRO 26.25.38).
Parts Information
Warranty Information:
Warranty claims should be submitted quoting S932 in place of the warranty fault code together with SRO: 26.25.38 and the relevant part number. This will result in a labor time allowance of 0.8 hours to replace the cooling fan module and payment for the part used. Should the vehicle be brought back into the workshop for this action alone to be undertaken, an additional labor time allowance of 0.1 hours can be claimed quoting SRO: 10.10.10 for drive in/drive out.
Warranty claims should be submitted quoting the information found in the table. This will result in payment of the stated time and, where applicable, parts/miscellaneous expense codes.
The options that allow for drive in/drive out may only be claimed when the vehicle has been brought in to the workshop for this action alone to be undertaken.
The SROs and parts items listed above have been included for information only, there will be no requirement to enter the parts or SROs onto the claim.
NOTE: Always perform a DDW claim search first to determine whether this service action has been performed on this vehicle. The warranty selection under the vehicle inquiry will give a listing of all claims against the vehicle. If this service action number appears in the program code field, do not perform this service action.

SOURCE: high/low sensor switch location for 1999 Buick Century

Ros.....The heater motor is located under the dash on the right hand side (passanger side). You will have to remove the close out panel to access. The resistor you are looking for will be to the lower left of the fan motor at about the 7:00 position. Illustration is below.
let me know.

1995 buick century cooling fan doesn't work.


I have the 1999 Century and have finally found the Head Gasket is leaky coming out the exhaust. I have to pray for the temperature gauge to come down. The mechanic I go to finally put in nearly a quart of Head Gasket sealant and she ran fine for a couple months and I popped a hose. From here I asked him to put some more sealant in, yet it did not work. I needed coolant and the only way to put it in was to open a relief valve when it was getting hot while running and it took almost a whole gallon. Without knowing of this relief valve I would be dead. I've heard of a way to put a resistor in the coolant fan harness to turn it on earlier, does anyone out there have an answer to this. Thanks a million. DaveF1953@Yahoo.com

Is there a cooling fan switch on a 96 buick century if so where is it located


The engine temp sensor sends a signal to the computer and the computer grounds the fan relay when it is needed.
I'm showing 6 relays on the firewall under the windshield.
The two on the right side are high and low radiator fan relays.

2002 Buick Century continue to run hot although I have replaced the thermastat and the radiator and checked anifreeze levels - what's else could be wrong?


Turn your a/c on, both fans will start. The temperature switch is located on the intake behind the thermostat housing, but it isn't near as hard to replace.

I have a 2002 buick century. It seems to be running hot. I have flushed the coolant system and refilled the radiator. I have replaced the temp sensor and the molule in the fuse box, still the electric...


With the A/C on the coolant fan should run constantly to cool the A/C condenser in front of the radiator. With the A/C off the coolant fan should come on around 210 degrees and stay on until the coolant temperature drops to between 190 and 200 degrees. Hope this helps.

Cooling fan not activating


On most vehicles, there is a thermostatic switch located on the bottom tank of the radiator that controls the electric fan. When AC is turned on, this switch is bypassed so its failure is 'cured.' These switches aren't terribly expensive nor difficult to replace but ensure you don't lose coolant on the ground while replacing the switch since the stuff is tasty and toxic to animals.
If you like to be able to research and or repair minor problems like this, you might consider buying the Haynes manual for your car. This will also let you approximately access what a repair might cost for labor if you can see the degree of difficulty yourself.
