2005 Mazda MPV Electrical Problem

My vans cooling fans run all the time and sound like jet engines. The electrical system surges at times, because my headlights and interior lights will dim or flicker. I've noticed the fan blower for the A/C will occasionally slow down as well.

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.

Radiator fan cycles continously. Fan radomely comes on and off frequently and has consistently gotten worse. Because of intermittent problem, Mazda was unable to diagnose problem. Any advice would be...


First, intermittent problems are the worst! I would look for a bad or loose connection. Does the fan ever run consistently? If you turn on A/C most cars will run fans continuously, if yours works ok on this setting then problem is isolated to temp control (fans ok, wiring ok, relay ok) The temp switch would be probably be faulty (or connections). If your fans cycle even on A/C setting then you are looking at a complete electrical inspection. Switches, wiring, fuses, connections, relays, fans...everything! Hope this helps and good luck!

Alternator not charging the battery.. Do you know where the alter


You own a mini van. These creations were designed by engineers to drive mechanics crazy! :-( Everything is designed with little or no access. The alternator on your van is made of aluminum (so it's silver). It is located near the crankshaft harmonic balancer. If you look at the harmonic balancer, the alternator will be at the 10 o'clock position. It is on the passenger side of the engine, behind the engine block. One of the fan belts goes to it. The pulley on the alternator has a belt on it. Follow the fan belt which goes towards the rear of the engine.

PS You may have to get under the van to remove it.

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.
