1st let me say I am a Ford dealer factory trained technician, if the fan runs when the sending unit is disconnected there is no problem with the cooling fan system, I used to get allot of complaints on this car about the colling fan not working, what owners don't realize is that the fan is not set to come on until the engine reaches 225-230 degree's Fahrenheit, that is right from the factory service manual, this means the temperature gauge in the car will be well past the center and about 2/3 of the way to the hot zone, it is my guess u don't have any problem here, it takes up to 20 minutes of idle time before the fan comes on, even on a warm day.

2009 chevy hhr speakers don't work and a/c radiator fan won't come on


What engine does it have ?

Cooling Fan Control 2.0L
The engine cooling fan is a variable speed fan. The engine control module (ECM) controls the fan speed by sending a pulse width modulated (PWM) signal to the cooling fan control module. The cooling fan control module varies the voltage drop across the engine cooling fan motor in relation to the PWM signal. The cooling fan speed can be adjusted from 10 percent to 94 percent duty cycle. 94 percent is considered high speed fan.
Cooling Fan Control 2.2L or 2.4L
The engine cooling fan system consists of one cooling fan and one relay. Voltage is supplied to the relay through a fuse. The engine control module (ECM) controls the fan operation by grounding the cool fan relay control circuit. When the cool fan relay is energized, voltage is delivered to the cooling fan motor. The cooling fan motor is grounded through its own ground circuit.
When the request for fan activation is withdrawn, the fan may not turn OFF until the ignition switch is moved to the OFF position or the vehicle speed exceeds approximately 10 mph. This is to prevent the fan from cycling ON and OFF excessively at idle.


Just one speaker doesn't work ? Do you know how to do automotive electrical testing ? That's how to find both your problems . Speakes work by electrical inpluse's . The A/C radiator ( condenser ) fan also works by B+ voltage through a fuse an a relay , controlled by the engine electronic control module or PCM - powertrain control module . When you push the A/C turn on button , it sends a signal to the PCM . The PCM will then energize the radiator fan relay turning on the fan . Check fuse in the under hood fuse box , If the fuse is blown you have a electrical short , too much current flow . Plus if the PCM sees too much pressure in the A/C system it will not let the A/C work .

How to find out what keeps blowing my fuse and overheating my Nissan Sentra 1.8 2006?


check what fuse is blowing
I suspect that it is a fuse for the fan relay that switches on the radiator fan
if that is the case , replace that relay
the reasoning is this
there is a fuse for the coolant temp sensor
that sensor reads the coolant temp and reports to the ECM so that the air/fuel mixture can be adjusted correctly
there is a second fuse for the control for the fan relay
when the coolant temp reaches a set temp , the ECM through that second fuse energizes the fan relay which starts the fan to cool the radiator
from your description , the short is in that system and so I suspect the relay is faulty
take it to an accredited auto electrical specialist for a diagnosis of the fault

2000 radiator fan test, is there any way to test the fan before o get a new one


check cooling fan fuse or fuse link.it all is good. fan relay or engine coolant temperature sensor.could have ECM FAULT it controls coolant fan relay and coolant fan.code scan for ECM FAULT YOU WILL SEE CHECK ENGINE FLASH IF PROBLEM IN THE ECM.but check cooling fan hot wire it using jumper wires to battery.if fan okay replace engine coolant temperature sensor.

New coolant fan and new control module but coolant fan does not work on my 2002 ford escort zx2


Try checking the fuse box under the hood. It should have a fuse marked cooling fan or cooling system. If the car does start, that means the computer isn't out, but maybe there is a bad relay by the fan or in the circuit or even the temp sensor may be bad. The fan won't run until the temp is high enough; usually by the time the thermostat opens.

99 ford escort running hot . i replaced the thermostat. flushed the radiator . had the synsors checked . no leaks no noice. is it my radiator?


You may need your radiator rodded and cored. But, before you do that check the relay that controls when your electric fan engages to pull air through your radiator. The sensors that control the electric fan are usually in the side tanks on the radiator. This sensor heats up and tells the fan when it needs to make the electrical connection to engage the fan to cool the radiator coolant. I would probably bet that is what is malfunctioning. They are a relatively inexpensive part. Good luck.

Underhood fuse block swap out relay #7 thats the ECM relay.
Ground Circuits Using a DVOM, touch negative voltmeter lead to a good ground. Touch positive voltmeter lead to each ground terminal. With vehicle running, voltmeter should indicate less than one volt. If reading is greater than one volt, check for open, corrosion and loose connection on ground lead. See ECM GROUND LOCATION table for ECM ground location.

Replaced cooling fan ,cooling fan relay, and 40 amp fuse. Fan still won't come on. Any suggestions? 1995 Ford Escort w/ 1.9 liter engine.


Did you check the parts before replacement? Check if there is power supply to the fan when engine is hot and the fan should start. Also check the temperature sensor or the automatic fan switch located below the radiator, it may be faulty.

Cooling fan comes on late in my 1994 ford escort 1.9


My 94 Escort had a problem with the fan relay connections at the relay, I had to remove it and the wires connected to it from the distribution box, this is complicated and not normal, but to check your relay, you will find it in the distribution box on the left fender close to the front underhood. The temp sensor is located in the steel portion of the heater line bolted to the block at the back of the cylinder head under the intake tube, there are two sensors there one for the guage and the other for the fan relay. Hope this helps, let me know

Is there a cooling fan fuse?


Everything in car is fused. The fans are controlled by a thermal sensor. You will need a wiring diagram to test for a faulty sensor.

engine coolant temperature sensor unit!? you say you had a thermostat issue some times if you over heat these the switch above might cause malfunction! I just spent 7 hours on relays!! with engine running un plug coolant sensor temp switch if your fan comes on you have no relay issues!! or ground problem keep in mind this switch tells the system the temperature then when reached sends signals to relay the fan to come on! when I unplugged mine fan ran plugged it back in off!!! replaced switch works great this is the true way to test don't get$$ it out hope this helps you out also be sure you have no air locks in your cooling system and you properly bleeded out all air sense you changed thermostat.John
