2002 rover 75 cooling fan not working

The thermistor is possibly located closer to the engine. I would check the fan for power first. If the fan is receiving power, but won't turn then you are looking at the more likely possibility that the fan motor has failed. Moving components tend to fail more readily than non moving resistive types such as the thermistor.

2004 mazda mpv engine racing and cooling fan not working

coolant temp sensor tells the computer how hot or cold the engine is so it can regulate the idle and fuel mixture, when it fails there usually is no cooling fan and you will have trouble starting the engine and keeping it running.

1994 Chevy Cavalier fan won't come on

Sounds like the sensor is not reading the coolant temp, or the computer is not accepting the data from the sensor.
Its possible you have air in the cooling system, or you have a problem with the computer.

Why won't the fan motor shut off on my 1991 acura legend?

Hey chandralebea,

Try first by replacing the cooling fan engine temp sensor switch, as this may be the cause.

Good Luck

I have a 2005 Chevy Equinox. During the day after it's been sitting, when you first crank it the a/c blows hot. But once you get rolling at a good speed it cools down. BUT, when you stop at a red...

This sounds like your cooling fan is not running. If you were to stop too long with with the engine idling it would overheat the engine. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but this is a very serious issue. I can have a number of causes, like bad cooling motor, bad wiring or conectors, bad relay, open fuse, etc. Please have it diagnosed and repared before it overheats the engine and possibly damages the engine. If you are stopped in trafic you can place the transmission in neutral and shut off the engine. When trafic restarts you can restart the engine and place the transmission in drive again and continue. I hope this helps.

Cooling fan will not come on. about two weeks ago car started to overheat. then heard a clicking sound. car then stalled

if the cooling fan didn`t come on then you need to find out the cooling fan motor seized or is the fan not being sent a signal from the ecm(computer) to turn on the fan through the cooling fan relay.if you take and unplug the cooling fan and run a power wire and ground wire to the connectors at the fan and it won`t work then the fan is seized and needs replacing.this is the most common problem with these.the other is the relay.if the ecm isn`t receiving a signal from the cooling system sensor then it may or may not turn on the check engine light.then you may have to have it checked with a scan tool that will show you what the ecm is seeing,to see if the temp is registering with the ecm.

I cant locate the fuse for my fan to cool the engine in my 1997 chrysler concorde

Look for the Fan Relay on the engine compartment fuse box, I think is on the Driver's side by the fenderwell. To test it, swap it with the AC Relay or another one with same relay number. The Fan should come on when the niddle is about the middle OR if you turn the AC on, the fan should start inmediately.

I have an 99 Intrepid and I had to replace the fan motor last year, the motor's bearings got dry and it was a little hard to turn. With engine OFF, turn the fan by hand and see if it keep turning, if it does not turn at least once, replace motor.

Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!
