Those fans can cost allot of money unless you get it used or off ebay or junkyard, I would first check the fuse and the cooling fan relay making sure its not faulty next also replace your temperature sensor, what it does it sense the temperature of your coolant in the engine and when it reach certain tempature it send information to the computer telling it to turn on the fan to cool down the engine down. its fairly cheap and it take 2 minute to replace; if the sensor is faulty the fan will not turn on automatically. next if you did everything and the fan still does not work You can pull the fan out and test it buy direct contact using some spare wire wires and touch it straight to the battery to the fans plug. it hard to believe both fans fail at the same time. keep in mind both fan work in sync, although the 2nd fan is only a back up help to cool the engine while AC is running.

Hi, i replace the thermostat and water pump flashed the radiator has coolant but still overheating, what else could it be its golf 4 tdi diesel 2002. Thank you


Radiator may have rust/salt deposits inside, if that is case its cheaper and better to change the radiator. Also for future don't use normal tap water in radiator, use a coolant + ph balanced water meant for radiators to reduce salt buildup inside radiator.

Also check the radiator fan is working ok and rotating in the right direction, sucking cool air inside not blowing out hot engine air to the radiator. Some electric fans can have wires mixed up so they start in the wrong direction. (make sure fan is sucking cool air outside towards the engine).

In some cars, radiator fan has a top cover that stops hot engine air getting sucked by the fan, if your car has it, make sure it is fitted properly and is in good order.

Some cars have a fan fitted on the AC condenser, make sure this fan is working as well.

What is a fan switch


It either turns the fan ON or OFF. It may also allow the fan blade shaft to rotate at 1, 2, or 3 speeds depending on design.

I Have A 1995 Toyota 4runner, the temp. gauge needle climbs to the hot side while running my a/c . why does it do that?


Hi Bobby,

This means that the Toyota is over heating. I take it that you have installed the Ac after you've bought the Toyota. The AC van that keep the AC radiator cool is rotating to the wrong direction. If you can get the fan to rotate in the same direction as the fan on the radiator then you will sort this problem.

Maza 323 radiator fan rotating direction


the direction of fan rotation will be on the motor body but check that th curved edge ( leading edge) of the fan blade is facing the radiator and that air is being pulled through th radiator. THe motors are dc operation and can spin in both directions and the fans themselves are made to fit in front of the radiator( a/c fan) and blow air through the radiator. So checking these points is necessary

Radiator fans don`t work on town and country van causing engine to overheat


The radiator fan relay is located behind the grill on the driver's side of the vehicle. There is no relay in the distribution box. There is a 40 amp fusible link, however, in that box.
The relay (behind the grill) works in conjunction with the coolant temperature sensor, the A/C high pressure switch, the transmission temperature sender and the PCM. This relay will run the fans from 30% to 99% of full speed based on the signal coming from the PCM. This is all according to the official Chrysler shop manuals that I have for my 2005 Town and Country van.

When driving down the road with the AC on the engine over heats. What should I do to fix the problem?


Check and make sure the fan comes on when the ac does, there are 2 fans one for regular cooling and the other for the ac. Also make sure the radiator is clean inside and has been flushed and make sure the thermostst is faily new and in working condition.

My 1998 jeep grand cherokee is running hot and leaking water, is the water pump bad?


well first i would check all the water hoses in the engine compartment for cracks and leaks then check around the radiater for leaks if you don't see any water leaking from the hoses or the radiater then try to see if you see water coming from the water pump behind the cooling fan if the water is leaking from behind the cooling fan then it is most likely your water pump

At first the ac stopped cooling. then the car overheated with the ac off. there appears to be no loss of radiator coolant


Turn your engine on with the A/C on high. Watch your cooling fans mounted behind the radiator to make sure they are running. If they're not running, you have something wrong in the electrical side of the fan system. The cooling fans are essential for cooling as they pull air through the radiator when the vehicle is not moving fast enough to cool the coolant. The problem probably lies in a relay, so replace the high speed fan relay with one you know works but is not essential for moment (rear window defrost or something similar) and put that in the relay spot for the high speed fans. If the fans kick on now, you need to replace your relay and this will probably also fix your overheating.
