If you can check power to the fan do that. It could be the fan or the relay which sends power to the fan. I have had relays that would get hot and drop out. If the fan works and sometimes doesn't you can just see if the relay is real hot. That would be a indication the relay is bad.

It is a simple video but the truth is In the last 20 years 90% of all my vehicle problem have been electrical. Check code if you have them. check fuse and relay.
If your a/c only works on the high fan setting it is a good indication it is the resistor. Make sure when you turn your a/c on one of the radiator fans comes on. Make sure the clutch starts spinning on the air compressor when the a/c is turned on. A/C will not come on due pressure switch is Freon is low . Hope something in this helps you.

You need a new reastat switch.It is located behind the glove box.Glove box has to come out and it is bolted to a brace by the heater motor.It is not that expensive,but takes a little time to change.It took me about an hour.

Mazda 626 v6 1999 when ac off overheating, if ac on -ok, if ac off 2 fans not works, if ac on 2 fans ok, Ireplace radiator, termastat, relay for fans.


Have you replaced the temperature switch sensors?
Most Mazdas and cars now days have a temperature sensor and a thermostat sensor that will operate the two fans on different temperatures/settings... Good luck!

Radiator fan


In most cases on all vehicles. No cooling fans operate until needed. This is a two step process. First your engine needs to reach operating temperature. After this, it closes a sensor on your engine to trigger a relay. This relay turns on the fan. If your fan runs all the time, either the relay is stuck closed or the sending unit is bad. Some cars have a two stage system, if one fan is not enough, it turns on another. If you turn on your AC, It makes the fan come on immediately to pull enough air through the condenser. I have seen many times people jump around this circuit and make their fan run as soon as the key is on. This will hurt your gas mileage as the alternator has to work harder.

My 97 RAV4 tends to overheat when sitting in traffic. Fine otherwise. Could this be a thermostat problem or a sensor? The check engine light is on also but this may be an unrelated issue.


yes...thermostat usually causes this bc its not opening...do you have heat....also radiator may need to be flushed.....coolant may be low..radiator coils may need to be sprayed out with air hose or garden hose...never a pressure washer...have a great day

2002 Chevrolet Impala overheating while idling


the thermostates on the 3400 engines are late because the fans kick in at the last moment. if you run your ac on you will notice that the gauge stays in front of the half mark or right on the half mark. that is because when you turn on your ac your fans will kick in earlier and stay on the whole time the ac is on. if you run your car with the heat on or nothing on that leaves the late thermostate to kick in verus you turning on your ac and it by passes the thermostates and runs the fans once the engine gets at at lest 120 deg. i use to have a 2002 and i had the same problem. this will keep your engine cooler. also if you don't want your air on just turn on your windshield defrosters (not the back windshield) and that helps keep your engine cool because your defrosters use your air compressor which is really your ac. so it still kicks the fans on earlier.
