2003 ford thunderbird coolant fan not working

Most likely a 20 amp fuse. If the fuse is good, Find the coolant fan relay(under hood). Check to see if fan runs with A/C on. If the relay is good, the fan will run continuous with the A/C on. If the fan does not run with A/C on, The Relay is Bad. Check the fan by unplugging the relay and install a 14 Ga. jumper into the normally open terminal position(socket) If fan runs with jumper, check the remaining 2 positions in the socket for Voltage(13v.) If voltage is present, relay is bad. If voltage is not present, Temperature sensor(signal to relay) is Bad. Leave jumper in place to keep from over heating engine. Fan should stop running when Ignition switch is turned off. This engine will blow a head gasket if over heated. A service manual is recommended for component locations and troubleshooting.

Dying, not starting after it's been warmed up. Runs beautiful on cold engine. Replaced plugs, wire, cap, rotor and crank position sensor, no luck.

Your car cold start valve puts more gas into the system keeping your engine running higher RPM. When you car warms up, the cold start valve will stop working and your car RPM will drop. What you could have is a vacuum hose disconnected which puts more air into your engine - therefore when you press on the gas pedal, your engine would shut off or you find lack of power and then shut off.

92 Honda accord. Radiator cooling fan does not turn on. All fuses were checked...Ok, Replaced both A and B temperature switches. The A switch, located at the thermostat housing was tested by putting it...

If bypassing the sensor in the car allows the fan to start, then I would say the issue has to do with the sensor. I've heard of them getting an air pocket around the sensor and preventing the fan from coming on. Maybe the contacts aren't making up in the connector? Corrosion could be causing an issue. Maybe a loose wire that opens the circuit when plugged into the sensor.

My 2000 impala will not start. I've had my starter, batt, & engine all replaced. I've begin to suspect my auto theif system as the reason its not starting after a lot of online research, but...

I had a Nissan doing this to me a little while ago, but couldn't figure out the problem. A couple weeks later, the lady told me she took the car to a shop and they replaced the crank and cam sensors. My bet is that it was the crank sensor.

Car starter not running

With the transmission in neutral or park and the hand brake fully applied, insert the key and turn it to the Run position, then cross the starter solenoid terminals with a screwdriver or something similar, being cautious to avoid electric shock. If this causes the starter to turn and start the engine, then your solenoid is bad. Other wise, if there is battery voltage present at the solenoids positive terminal and it has a good ground connection through the starter motor itself, then the starter is bad or the engine is seized.
Good luck.

There is no spark at the spark plugs and tahoe wont start

First check power to the coil. Pull the connector off and probe the connector terminal from the pink wire with a 12 volt test light. Connect the test light clip to a ground point/bolt on the engine. The test light should come on when the ignition switch is on. If not, suspect the ECM-1 fuse is bad or the ignition switch is bad.
If there is power to the coil, next test the coil. Run a jumper from the battery positive terminal to the pink terminal on the coil itself. Pull the coil wire off the distributor and place the wire close (within 1/4 inch) to a ground point on the engine. Then, briefly touch a jumper from the black/white coil terminal to engine ground. The coil should release a spark. If not, replace the coil.
If the coil is good, suspect the crankshaft position sensor is bad or loose. I'm assuming your engine light is off, but the sensor can fail without setting the engine light. If the engine light is on, see if you can get a scan to see if a crankshaft sensor trouble code is set.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
