Question about 2000 Toyota ECHO
Hi, do you mean the radiator fan is not working when the engine gets hot if this is the case then it could be one of a couple of things the first and most likely would be the fan sensor switch or sensor the second problem could be that the motor for the fan has shorted out.
Now the thrid problem could be that the thermostat isnt opening causing the engine to over heat if it is the thermostat then the fan wouldnt cut in due to the fact that only the bottom half of the water coolant system is heating up due to the thermostat not opening.
The first thing i would replace is the temp sensor switch for the fan if you order one of these from car spares shop you will then know what it looks like and you should find thiis towards the front of the engine with one or two wires coming from it it will look like a metal plug but buying the new one would show you what your looking for making your job easier.
Replacing this part should solve your problem if not then let me know then i can assist you further with testing the thermostat etc.
Their is an outside chance that it could be head gasket failure as well but we will talk about this once you have ruled out the fan switch being at fault.
Let me know how you get on ok or if you need further assistance ok.
The fan switch should solve your problem let me know if not then we can talk about what else it could likely be.
Many thanks for using fixya
