Hi Michael; Start here,check for broken wires and for corrosion where it plugs into power, check heat sensor, and fuse, see if fan turns freely with power off, try A cheap volt tester that you stick in wires they are cheap at Auto. centers, or cut the ground and power wires and touch power and ground to battery and see if it spins tape back together.This may save you A lot of time and MONEY...Hope this helps and if you need more info. on how to doe this contact me.Good luck they can be A pain in the A...

SOURCE: i have a oo ford fiesta the rad fan will not come

The fan runs when commanded by the computer. The most common cause of the fan not working is the fan resistor located in the fan shroud next to the fans. The resistor rots from water and the connector to the resistor sometimes melts.
Hope this helps

I have a 2014 Ford Fiesta I replace the engine cooling fan with a new one but I can't get the fan to come on what is my solution

first check your fuse this should always be the first thing you check no matter what before you spend$$$$ if the fuse is good locate the cooling fan electrical plug create a jumper wire and connect it to the positive wire and see if the fan comes on if it does that's good if it doesn't the new motor is n/g now after we have confirmed that the fan motor does indeed work you must drain the radiator and remove the coolant temperature sensor this acts as the switch to turn on the fan motor when the bimetal elements touch each other inside at the right temperature this completes the circuit and turns on the fan motor reverse removal fill the radiator and let run to check for leaks and that the fan now comes on

How do I remove a radiator of a ford fiesta

Drain the radiator fluid, remove bolts and hoses and pull out. You may have to remove the front grill to do this but the radiator itself should only have 4 bolts holding it on.

My 1.4 2007 Ford fiesta is overheating. I am told it is a sensor. an i fix it myself?

Who said a sensor ?? how and when is it overheating ? if on a drive and the car doesnt stop in traffic with no sign of running hot then its a temperature sensor that controls the radiator fan,but at this age of the vehicle i would suspect a head gasket ,with over 100,000 miles then the gasket will deteriorate and could need renewing or another factor could be the water pump as the pump has a plastic impeller which can and often does come adrift from the drive shaft ,their are so many factors involved that you must consult a proper mechanic not one of these young unit changer types .Aslo this engine if iam not mistaken for this year is a citreon/peugeot engine

Radiator fan doesnt switch off.

Many vehicles are set up to run the radiator(/ac condenser) fan whenever the air conditioning is on. Might this be the case here - is the air conditioning on when on the open road? Just a thought.

Ford Fiesta Zetec engine, year 2000. overheats after getting up to temperature, stays on normal for 1-2 kilometers, then gauge shoots over to the red. I stop, can hear water bubbling, wait till it cools...

1. Check the radiator cap.
2. Check the reserve tank, whether water level is maintained or getting filled. If it's getting filled, there should be a leak in the radiator or gasket

I have bought a Ford Fiesta Zetec 1.25 ( Model May 2010 ). Have noticed that the fan switches on and off frequently - even after a short drive in cool ambient temperatures. Is this normal ?

The problem you are experiencing with your car is as a result of the fact that the fuse which supplies power to the fan from the main source(battery) is working eppileptically which means its failing in discharging power.

1.The solution is to open the fuse box and replace the fuse which controls the fan.
2.If the problem persists it means the problem is from the relay switch,which means the relay switch has to be replaced.

Problem solved.

Thank you for using fixya.

Ford Fiesta Zetec 1.4 After switching off the ignition, even after very short journeys the radiator fan motor continues to operate for up to 1 minute, is this normal, it never did it before, your help...

the temp sensor is right at the top of the head,so if the engine gets up to running temp (even though the rad is cool)it thinks it has a hot spot,so the fan comes on for a minute.then as the "hotspot "goes,the fan switches off.its not a problem unless the fan stays on,then change the sensor.

1999 Ford Fiesta cooling fan not coming when the engine gets to temp

go to the radiator and see if there is a big brass type bolt head screwed into it with a plug with 2 cables on it . if it is not there folloe the top radiator hose where it goes to the engine and it should be there. take the plug off the switch and with the ignition turned on join the cables together. the fan should then operate. if it does not check the fuse for it. hope this helps.
