Question about Mazda MPV

1 Answer

I have 2005 MPV with electrical problems. It started out with the cooling fans sounding like jet engines. They run all the time and rev up and down. The head lights and interior lights will also flicker from time to time. It seems as though they don't have a steady flow of electricity. Could this possibly be a bad regulator, if so, where is it?

Very possible! The regulator is built onto the altenator.

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.

Hello and welcome, it sounds like you need to replace your fan clutch. Your Jeep has 2 cooling fans 1 runs off the engine the other is electric. Before replacing the fan clutch you need to make sure the electric cooling fan is working just turn on your a/c and it should kick on. If it does then the problem is your fan clutch is it doesn't then your electric fan is most likely bad.

Why does the fan keep running on 2005 jetta after turning off


You are talking about the thermo electric cooling fan, its operation is independent of the car's electical system. It is switched on and off by the engine temperature. When you park, the engine heat soaks upward to heat the thermostat turning the fan on. It will run until the engine cools down and the thermostat switches it off. Quite normal operation.

2005 Mazda MPV Electrical Problem


Fix the overheating problem first.Could just be a faulty coolant temperature sensor.
Then tackle the charging system.
Maybe a bad cable or alternator on the way out.

I just purchaced a 2001 ford ranger 3.0 and was wondering if it is normal for the cooling fan to rev high. you can hear it roar when you start out but when it shifts gears it quiets down. i also noticed...


Is normal for older vehicles to do this. Wait until something breaks and fix it. I know it doesnt sound like great advice, but if all is working,leave it alone.

My 2005 mazda mpv's fan does not shut off after the ignition is turned off. I must turn the ignition back to the starting position and then off again or the fan will continue to run for several minutes...


I have a 2003 MPV with the same problem. There was a recall in 2004 to replace the fan controller module, which apparently would fail regularly. I had mine replaced under the recall although there were no symptoms at the time. Now it appear that the replacement has failed, but I've already used the recall and you can only do it once. Even though your warranty is up the recall still applies if your car is of the model that qualifies. Call your dealer, and he can tell you if you are eligible. It is almost certainly the problem. I don't care how you drive or what the temperature is, your fan shouldn't run immediately after starting or run for more than a couple of minutes after you shut it off.

2005 Nissan Sentra, AC blowing hot & engine overheating


most likely a thermostat because the pressure on the a\c will be high if engine is over heating or the fans are not kicking on (check fan relay)
