The air cond system on this vehicle is electronically controlled by a computer commanded by the user. It incorporates various relays and switches to acheive the desired effect. If the fan works normally when the engine cooling system commands it on then i would suspect a relay or switch in the a/c system. Electrical issues with any make of car can be very hard to diagniose due to the amount of circuits, switches, relays, etc.etc. I would suspect the relay to be the first check in my diagnosis. Since electrical issues can get very in depth you might consider a professional first. If not you will need a manual to have access to wiring diagrams. Always be careful when working with electicity as even low voltages can still be dangerous.

  2. Remove the splash guard on the right side of the vehicle.
  3. Loosen the alternator belt idler pulley.

  8. Disconnect the alternator harness connector.
  9. Remove the alternator mounting bolts, and lower the alternator from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Hold the alternator in place and install the mounting bolts.
  2. Plug in the alternator harness connector.
  3. Move the air conditioning compressor back into location.
  4. Install the radiator cooling fan and shroud.

Proper belt tension is important. A belt that is too tight may cause alternator bearing failure; one that is too loose will cause a gradual battery discharge and/or belt slippage, resulting in belt breakage from overheating.

Air condition problems


No it shouldn't unless activated by the fan switch. If the fan switch is activated, then probably not enough freon in the system.

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.

Air condition and fan dont work


If all fuses are ok then check wiring to fan and compressor both, if wiring is also ok and current is passed till the terminals then you have two problems, one the magnet forming coil on the compressor head is burnt, you have to replace or get it repaired. second your fan itself needs checking.

AirFlow stopped working on E39 1998


  1. check your fan belt, if your fan belt is in the normal position and no problem.
  2. check your compressor and also check the clutch, it is locate right in front of the compressor, when you turn on your air conidition, the clutch should be turn with the fan belt. If it is not, that means your compressor had problem.
  3. check fuse.
  4. check the freon small flow window see if the lique bubbling too much, if it is means you need fill up R-12 freon.
  5. you probably can not do it yourself, in case if you need freon and your compressor is completely empety, you need a special tool to **** the air out first and than fill up freon.
  6. if your air condition is leaking,and you have to fill up a can of special check leaking freon with red colour first, until you find the leaking parts, fix it then you can fill up freon
