Question about Cars & Trucks
Fans do not come on. I changed the thermostat and flushed the system out.
Wish you had stated make/model here.
Before 'hotwiring' fans - test to see if power is actually going to fan(s) - on most cars with two fans - one is ran from engine temp sensor, while the other is run from the A/C system (and for example on Nissan Maxima will not run unless A/C is actually on).
To test get a simple test light - with car at temp test the positive to negative connection at the wire harness connector (should be near fan). Also, test positive to a good ground point. This way you know if power is going to fans.
To 'hotwire' an individual fan - unplug fan from harness - using same grade of wire (2 wires one from positive side of battery to positive input of fan harness, 2nd wire from negative side of connector to a known good ground). - fan should run at that point - if it doesn't and power to harness, replace fan.

If you've got the hydraulic fan, check to see that the solenoid at the power steering pump is plugged in. My 1993 3.0 had this happpen, and that's what was wrong. You have to pull the front passenger side wheel off to access the pump. Just stick your hand up in there and feel around. You'll find it. One way to check is to let the car idle and turn the a/c on full blast. You should hear the fan start to roar after a few seconds. If it doesn't, then check the solenoid wire. Worked for me!

you have a burnt fan relay...if it were my car i ould run a jumper to the fuse panel so that when you turn the key on the fan will also come on and run.its not hard to do and it will stop the car from overheating

check and see if there is a bleeder for the cooling system its usally located be the thermostat , there is a posibility it could be air bound. also if your claim is overheating and you are seeing this on the gauge try to verify coolant temp with a scanner you may have a bad sensor for the gauge-Goodluck

If you have checked the relay module under the fans,on drivers side,and they are fine,replace the coolant sensor,and make sure all the air is bled out of the cooling system.
