Question about 1997 Honda Accord

1 Answer

My 1997 Honda Accord 4cyl. condenser fan began to run continuously (even after engine was shut off) after cycling the A/C temp. selector from hot to cold. I disconnect the condenser fan to avoid draining the battery when car is not in use. Now the condenser fan is intermittently working and no cold air is available with temp. select. in cold position. I serviced the A/C with R-134A and didn't seem to work. Hot works fine. Any ideas?

Sounds like the AC relay/switch is sticking on sometimes. Locate and swap this relay. Look at your fuse box lids for location or search online for the exact location. You also might have a leak in the ac lines or the AC condenser clutch is not engaging to kick the ac on. You should feel a slight power loss or hear a slight stutter in the engine when pressing your AC switch. This means everything kicked on. It's a millisecond before the ECU realizes this and kicks up the idle to compensate.

Radiator and condenser fans do not go off whenever ac is switched on on 1999 honda accord


The fans will likely come on with the A/C. One is to help cool the radiator when you aren't moving, and the other is for the A/C when there isn't enough airflow to cool the condenser. Both fans may continue to run even after the car is turned off.

The AC in my 1992 Honda Accord works. However, it blows hot air when I'm stopped at a light for too long. "Honda diagnosed the problem; said something about some type of thermostat that sticks,...


This indicates that the booster fan for AC has failed. If you look in back of the radiator, you will see 2 electric fans. One is for the engine cooling, and the other is a booster for when the AC is running to provide for extra air flow through radiator and AC condenser. (May also apply when engine overheats, but not sure of that) As car is moving along, then air is pushed through allowing AC to work. When standing still, and fan failed, then no air (or less air) passing over condenser grill. (Condenser is the one in front of the radiator) No cool.
While standing still with engine running, open the hood and look at fans. Watch your fingers. Fans can start at any time. One may be running or not. Now turn on AC and look at fans. Both should come on together. If not, then it may be either the fan, or the fan relay or fuse. Or even the wire.
Does the engine get extra hot while standing still running? Let it sit there for ten mins or so and see if main fan kicks on. Watch your temp gauge, you dont want it to boil over. When the temp reaches the level it is at normally, one fan should kick on. If temp keeps climbing and no fan, then that may be the same issue, likely the main relay.

no, your condensor fan motor is not working. if its faulty, install a new motor. not the fan leaf, only motor assembly. its cheap too. but first you have to check refrigerant leaks. then check condensor fan. thanks

Jump air compressor ac works replace relays same issue HONDA


the compressor may be low on freopn but, the fan problem is most likely the fan motor as it is the low temp fan and will run more often than both fans...to test see if you can switch the fan plugin to the other fan watch carefully that it does not get too hot as the second fan is a safety fan that works as high temp or when using the A\C

1991 honda accord lx cooling fan


Some vehicles have sensors that can control the electric fan with the ignition off to keep the heat buildup that naturally occurs right after turning off the engine. This can prevent hard starting that can happen with a hot engine. If it is doing this an abnormal amount, the sensor that is operable with the ignition off may be failing. Before turning off the ignition, check to see if the engine temperature is pushing the 'red zone;' if it is, then the fan operation may be normal but your engine may be running hot.

1997 Honda Accord cooling problem.


Most Hondas and modern car fans can and do run at will. 215 on a scan tool is just reading the sensor and variation is ok. A temp gun is more accurate. Ill bet your gage is still normal. I have a honda and the fan runs at times when I get out. Normal
