Question about Saturn SL2

1 Answer

1996 Saturn SL2. Windows and interior fan won't run when car is running, but will work when the car is off and only ac is turned on? Was told by local mechanics that it "could" be the ignition switch. Just had the starter motor replaced about 2 months ago!

I agree with the mechanic, the most likely cause is the ignitions switch. The ignition switch has nothing to do with the starter.

My engine fan is not working

If you have the 1.9 liter engine...
There is a coolant temperature sensor located on the drivers side cylinder head, and if this goes bad, you fan won't run.
You can test this with a live data scanner to verify the issue.

1999 Saturn SL2 electrical problems with fog lights, cooling fan, ac, running lights. None of them are working.

first place i would start are the MAXIfuses in the main fuse panel in the engine compartment, they are huge green fuses that should be 30A. but they control a large array of things.

Radiator fan will not run but motor is good

follow the wires coming off the fan they will lead you to the relay from that the relay will run to the temp sensor which trips the relay for the fan
