I would love to help but without specific information on make, model, year and engine type and size you are making it difficult.

What fan? The radiator fan? That would be normal, because it runs until a temperature sensor is "happy," then shuts off. But it would not be normal to have the passenger compartment blower still running, with the engine off!

When I turn the engine off the engine cooling fan stays on and does not shut off


depending on the engine temperature the fan is supposed to remain on after you turn the engine off, until the engine reaches a preset cooler temperature. when it reaches cooler temperature usually within 5 minutes or so it should cut off... if you cut it off and it is running 30 minutes later.. then there is a problem with the fan relay or temperature sending unit.

Cooling fan temp light stays on when air condition is on. fans are not kicking on. Is it the fan module ?


I didn't know it had a light on the dash that said "cooling fan temp".
My 93 doesn't.
The cooling fans are controlled by the computer and turned on when the ac is running or when the engine reaches 220 degrees.
A mechanic would check the fuse and relay for power and the fan motor for power and ground.

2007 CHEVY COBALT CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS ON AND THE FAN IS CONSTANTLY RUNNING


this is normal for most vehicles, it is because the water temp in radiator continues to rise after you shut the engine off. would not worry about it unless it dose not shut off at all. or never runs

I have a 98 sunfire. should the cooling fan on the radiator come on from the initial start up?


The engine cooling fan is designed to come on when the engine reaches 225-235 degrees Fahrenheit. That is the only time it runs. Do you get a check engine light?

2003 Chevy Impala, running hot. Changed fan shroud because cooling fan wouldn't turn on, switched out fan relays, no check engine light. Cooling fan still will not turn on.


Would turn the key on no need to start it and unplug the ect engine coolant temp sensor. If fans come on then suspect a faulty etc which may not turn on the engine light. Which engine is in the vehicle so I can help locate the ect which is usually by the thermostat housing.

My 95 buick low coolent light is flickering on/off, she gets hot quick if im standing still. Water pump was replaced last year. last night the light came on onsc and now tonight its flickering all the time...


with the engine running and at operarating temperature,underneath the front of car? do you see fluid running onto the ground?with engine running hot standing still,,is your coolant fan coming on? you should see it turning on the front engine side of the radiator.visually. ok check this also with engine running, turn the a/c on does the other fan come on when you turn the a/c on? if so,then the a/c fans ok. when your engines running,and it overheats sitting still,do you see at least one fan moving? if not,turn the engine off. try turning the main cooling fan by hand.if it does'nt turn easily,it's bad or locked up.does it wobble when you try to turn it? if so,it's bad. if none of the above,open the main fuse panel under the hood,check main fan relay,or fuse ,for fault. the thermostat may be suspect also.you've had the thermostat replaced already,but when you start the engine and run it,does the main engine fan come on to do it's job? if it does,then i would suspect a bad thermostat. easily replaced at a small price for part,minimal price for labor.$40.00 for thermostat replacement is usually high. $15.00 for part is usually a high price.try auto zone.advance auto parts. never replace w/used thermostat! thank you for choosing fixya.com

Electric fan does not work


This can be due to a bad relay or coolant sensor that turns on the fan or a bad fan, a good test to do to see if the relay and the fan work is to start the engine and then turn on the ac, if the ac doesnt work then unplug the coolant temp sensor this will turn on the check engine light but it will reset when you restart engine, if the fan turns on then fan and relay are good and its the sensor, if the fan doesnt run then it may be the relay or fan, a quick test of the fan is to dissconnect plug to fan and run a power and ground wire to fan and if it runs then you have a bad relay,hope this helps,e0be4e7.gif

Engine fan does not run and the fan is not electric


If the cooling fan is not turning when the engine is running, the fan clutch assembly is defective. This is a common problem. The fan clutch is an electrically operated clutch controlled by the engine computer. You should also have the Check Engine light on.

My 94 Saturn temperature goes to the hot zone 15 mins after start


best to find out why the check engine light came on first could be you need to find out how that fan runs factory and check every thing out. could have a clogged radiator or a bad t-stat

95 grand am radiator fan only runs with AC on


Cooling Fan Temp Sensor is the First thing You Check (with what you have described) Cooling Fan Should ALways come On When The A/C is turned On as A/C Adds A Load to Engine, If Temp Sensor is Faulty it Will Not Give GROUND Signal to ECM >For COOLING FAN >RELAY to Give ground and turn ON The Fan.
There ARE 2 temp Sensors that Serve Different Purposes 1 is for Dash READING GAGE & Or TEMP LIGHT the Other is For ECM or Fan Relay (SAME Thing) you Said>""can disconnect the sensor and fan continues to run" < This Leads me to think you Changed the Wrong One. Not Questioning your Skills Just Here to Help.
TEMP SENSOR FOR 3.1L V6 is Located upper RH rear of engine compartment, near exhaust system. Temp SENSOR for 2.3L Engine is Located in LH rear of engine compartment.
I Hope this Helps Lead you to a NON-OVERHEATING Pontiac.
Good Luck and Have A Great Evening. rejakwilson
