Even with a fully charged battery i need to use a battery pack to start the van when it does start the cooling van comes on for a minute then goes off and that continues


Check rear AC in van and turn it off. Most vans have dual AC. Even if the front AC is off, the rear is still usually on and some vehicles have the cooling fan and condenser fan run together to help with cooling. Check relay and fuse also.

Power to instrument panel, door lock, AC went on/off during driving


It appears that you have a bad intermittent connection and those are hard to fix because most of the time, like when you want to work on it, everything is fine! But yes, check the wiring and the switches involved in affected circuits you described.

2002 Lexus es300 electrical cooling fan shuts on and off with ac on


Hi Dennis, When the AC is selected an additional cooling fan should cut in to cool the additional requirements of the condenser radiator, mounted in front of the radiator cooling the engine. If the operation of the AC fan is intermittent the most probable cause is a defective control relay or a loose connection. The relays are easy to find, being in a housing usually marked on top of the outside. Regards John

A loud fan comes on sometimes while driving.


You may have a second fan that comes on when the ac is running or just to help cool the engine down. If not then the fan you have is two speed and it kicks up a notch and turns at faster rpm's to help cool the vehicle.

Service engine light is on and code P0526


The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) uses the cooling fan speed signal in order to determine the actual fan speed in relation to the desired fan speed. The PCM uses the cooling fan speed signal in order to reduce the cooling fan noise and in order to maintain the powertrain cooling requirements. The PCM supplies power and ground to the clutch hall effect sensor of the cooling fan clutch. The hall effect sensor returns a signal pulse through the speed signal circuit in response to the reluctor track, which is located inside the fan clutch. If during operation, the PCM detects a loss of the cooling fan speed signal, DTC P0526 will set
  • An inline connector could cause an intermittent DTC. Ensure to test for poor connections and pin retention at all inline connectors. Refer to system schematics for connectors and locations.
  • If the condition is not present, refer to Testing for Intermittent and Poor Connections.
  • Disconnect the harness connector of the cooling fan clutch from the shroud. Inspect the exposed wires between the harness connector and the tubing.
  • Inspect the cooling fan clutch harness in order to ensure that the clutch supply voltage circuit is not shorted to the following circuits:
  • The 5-volt reference circuit.
  • The cooling fan speed signal circuit.
  • The low reference circuit.
  • DTC P0526 will set if the engine is started without the drive belt ON.

Kia over heats when air is on only


your AC cooling fan is not working properly, most vehicle has two fans, one for the radiator and another for AC, both work in sync with one another; if one cooling fan only working it does not produce enough cooling for both radiator and condenser at the same time; by running ac you producing more heat and its cant cool the engine fast enough with one fan so your engine is overheating when running AC. The temperature sensor could be faulty and need to be replace or your fan motor can also be faulty. Check the fuse first and the relay make sure they are not burn out. sensor cost about 30 bucks get it new, relay 35-40 new used 5 bucks at junk yard, fan get it from a junk yard for 25-30 bucks, new will run over 100 bucks. don't run the air and overheat your motor, it can damage your engine or may blow your radiator. if you do run ac watch the temp very closely, don't let temperature get into the red.

When should the radiator fans be running? They only seem to run when I put the A/C on. Should they run at other times? I have a Nissan Sentra 2002 GXE.


One fan should be on once the coolant temp hits a preset number, I believe it may be 205 for teh Sentra. The second fan kicks in once the AC is on.
