Check the wire connection on the electric fan, look for a bad ground from the fan to the body and check the wire harness for 12 volt power, You can check that by having the wire disconnected and run the engine with the a/c on. That should send power to the wire harness, if there is power to the harness then the fans has gone bad. I believe there are two fans, try swapping the wire harness with one another to see if it's just one fan that went bad. Good luck and hope this helps.

Two cooling fans controlled by three relay's . If only one fan is working ,that could be a problem .
Coolant Level Sensor Description
The coolant level sensor monitors the coolant level in the cooling system and indicates if the coolant is low. This sensor is located at the base of the radiator surge tank and is not serviceable.
CHECK COOLANT LEVEL (2)
The IPC receives a discrete input from the engine coolant level switch. The engine coolant level switch is normally closed. When the engine coolant is low, the engine coolant level switch opens. When the IPC receives an open signal from the engine coolant level switch, the IPC displays the message on the DIC.

I have a 92 honda accord that overheats because my fans dont turn on. i know they work because when i turn the a/c on they turn on, but other wise they dont. ive replaced the thermostat and have had no...


Check for a faulty engine coolant temperature switch. This is the switch that talks to the cars computer and the fan relays. (It is NOT the same as the separate coolant temperature sender which is what sends the temperature to the coolant temp gauge on the dash instruments.) If the engine coolant temp switch is stuck open or in the cool mode, it may not trigger the fan relays. Meanwhile, your coolant temp on the dash gauge will look normal.

You have to check the main relay fan fuse relay and disconnect the fan and try it directly to make sure the fan motor is fine if all this is well into the cavity where the thermostat is a thermal switch that sends it relay the signal to the fan you can disconnect and the fan has to start working if this works the problem is you have the thermal switch.

What would cause my radiator fans not to run


A lot of different things fall into this senario.Low coolant level,air in the cooling system,and a stuck thermostat,or,a bad coolant sensor,or even a bad cooling fan relay,or the cooling fans are bad.Turn the defrost on or the ac,the cooling fans should come on if the fans,and the relay are ok,if so,replace the thermostat,and coolant sensor,and bleed the cooling system of air.

Coolant temperature relay switch


Most vehicles use a coolant temperature sensor which is located near the thermostat directly connected into the coolant line, or near the thermostat housing, there are relays for the cooling fan which is usually located in the power distribution box under the hood.

OVER HEATING


In the fan circuit...You have a temp switch screwed on the radiator, a fuze and a relay in the fuze box plus a fan.  Swap the relay with another relay, replace the fuze.  The other fan should come on when the a/c is turned on.  If you fix the fans and it still overheats, you may have a BLOWN HEAD GASKET.  ALSO ARE YOU BLEEDING THE AIR FROM THE SYSTEM?  DO YOU SMELL EXHAUST IN THE COOLANT?

Radiator fan not working


Hi. Check the bottom of the radiator or on the side, as you also have a temperature-sending switch. The switch must reach a certain temperature before sending a signal on to the fan relay.

The switch just screws into the radiator.

If you would like to contact me again about this or other problems, feel free to do so.

engine coolant temperature sensor unit!? you say you had a thermostat issue some times if you over heat these the switch above might cause malfunction! I just spent 7 hours on relays!! with engine running un plug coolant sensor temp switch if your fan comes on you have no relay issues!! or ground problem keep in mind this switch tells the system the temperature then when reached sends signals to relay the fan to come on! when I unplugged mine fan ran plugged it back in off!!! replaced switch works great this is the true way to test don't get$$ it out hope this helps you out also be sure you have no air locks in your cooling system and you properly bleeded out all air sense you changed thermostat.John
