Question about 1991 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

1 Answer

My car keeps over heating and we have gotten to the source. The electrical center is fouling. The relay for the first fan is not working. I thought I wasnt getting power to the box. The fans were not working and I replaced them. Now when we put the new fans on, the secondary fan works only when we take the relay out for the first fan. Besides that, the fans dont come on. I am wondering if there is a wiring problem and if there is a diagram for the wiring on the vehicle that I can get online to fix my car? Please help

I would suggest you go and buy a haynes repair manual for your specific vehicle. The run about 15 bucks.
Check online for one or got to a Advanced Or Auto Zone . They stock them and you wont have to pay shipping. Lee
Also please note that one of the fans is for the A/C. And only works with air on, if it works.(the air). Lee

The primary radiator fan does not come on.


Check Maxi fuse #3 60 amp in the under hood electrical center #1 .This is power for the #1 cooling fan . Also check the #1 fan control relay in the same under hood electrical center .
These vehicles use 2 360 mm (14.2 in) cooling fans to aid air flow through the radiator. Electric motors drive the cooling fans. These motors are attached to the radiator. Motor size varies with each engine option.
A coolant temperature switch activates the fan motors. This switch regulates voltage to the cooling fan relay. This switch operates the fan whenever the engine coolant temperature exceeds 110°C (230°F). For location and diagnosis, refer to Electrical Diagnosis. A transducer can also activate the circuit, depending on the A/C compressor head pressure going to the condenser.
The engine cooling fan relays provide the high current required for the cooling fan motors using a low current signal coming from the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). This signal is a function of various inputs.
Refer to Electrical Diagnosis for further information and diagnosis of the cooling fan relay.

Citroen C4 automatic. After car has been driving then stops, the fan keeps going until battery runs dead. The AA fitted brand new battery but problem persists. Any ideas?


Most "CCC" Or computer comand controlled vehicles supply power to the electircal components automaticaly via a relay, there will be one power source with the ignition off,& a second power sourse when the ignition is turned on,In this case the temp sensor will supply a ground to the cooling fan circuit when the engine temp reaches a specified temperature and the fan comes on. In my opinion you most likely have a relay that has malfunctioned(gotten too hot & fused internaly) find your engine cooling fan relay(s) & remove them.If the fan stops you may have found your problem.to check the power supplied to the relay you will need a simple test light, connect the clip to a good ground & probe the relay socket with the tip of the lights probe. where there is power the test light will light up. Ignition off-1 power source,Ignition on-2 power sources/ to check for the ground supplied by the temp sensor connect the test lights clip to a battary+ source & probe the relay socket again if there is a ground supplied the test light will light up, there may be more than one temp sensor in the cooling system.you should be able to aquir a wiring diagram online if you do not have a book.one of the sensors sends the temp signal to the gauge in the dash, & the other is the ground supply for thr fan relay. I hope I have been of some help.

Check the fan operation to the radiator. If the secondary fan doesn't come on it can't dissipate the heat generated from the condensor. There are relays that control the fan under the hood in the electrical center. Check power and ground to both fans when vehicle running A/C on, both fans should be running. Check for blockage in front of rad / condensor.

AC/heating fans don't work


The relay center is under the hood, there should be several with the same #'s switch one that you know is working in place of the fan relay, if fans turn on replace relay. It is faster to turn on ac after switching relays for diagnostics as fan should run as long as ac is on...

Interior Fan Motor won't stop 2004 VW Touareg


Find and replace the Blower fan relay, not sure where it is on your VW but it's common to be in with the fuse box by the battery. Good luck and hope this helps. When the relay goes bad from the heat of the electrical current, it seizes and does not disengage keeping the connection causing the ran to keep running.

AC electric fans do not work???


First, hot wire the fan motor to the battery. If it works, then locate the relay in the power distribution center and change it. Also check any fuses related.

Electric radiator fan won't come on when engine gets hot


By pass it. remove wires from fan leaving enough wire to splice onto.Run 2 wires 1 to ground and 1 to a power source in fuse panel that only has power when ignition is on such as running lights . this by passes fuses and relays and assures your fan is running if your vehicle is running.
