Replace the connector first. Replace both ends. If it's a special one and you don't want to buy it from Toyota then get regular connectors from the auto parts store and replace them ONE AT A TIME. That way you will be sure that the right wire is plugged in to the right wire. If you get the regular connectors they are color coded for size. The most commonly used is blue for size 14-16 wire. If the wires for your switch are very thin then they are probably size 18-20 which would be the red connectors. Also make sure that the female connector is coated to insulate it from the others. Hope this helps.

Hyundai Elantra temperature goes up to HI when air is turned on

There is an electric fan that should come on with the AC and run whenever the AC is on,if it doesn't come on it will heat up very quickly. Sounds like a problem with that radiator mounted fan.
The fan is supposed to come on when the engine gets hot enough also.
If so, the AC should be ok at hiway speeds.But you need the fan to work.

Hello: You need to check your thermostat, radiator for proper flow (radiator shop can flow check your radiator) Also if it overheats in traffic your cooling fan(s) may not be coming on. If you have air conditioning that is working start the engine turn the A/C on. Open the hood, the cooling fans should be running. You also may try flushing the radiator. Follow the directions for the flush procedure on the container. If the radiator has crud it may be cheaper to replace the radiator than repair.

Keeps overheating after i have already changed water pump, thermostat, an having radiator flush an new heater lines

Make sure the radiator fan cycles when vehicle reaches about 220 degrees, if not replace the electric radiator fan and relay. The fan relay sits below the passenger headlamp. If that is working correctly you may have a cracked or warped cylinder head. Most shops can do a chemical test to the coolant system to check for combustion chamber gasses from cracked heads, the only drawback is that this test only tests for combustion gasses and doesnt usually show when the head has cracks between coolant passages

Radiator fan motor doesnt come. changed radiator fan motor and the checked fuse ;good! Turned the AC on and the motor still doesn't come on! Checked power at the fuse box but reads 2.5 volts dc to...

Make sure all your ground connections are good and clean. That includes the main one from the battery to the block, fender and block to firewall and several other smaller ones on the block. Make sure the connectors are clean and have power where it should be. You have a fan relay behind and below the rt headlamp. that is the primary one for the fan. Don't forget that there are connectors under the power distribution center. A good fuse connected to a bad connector won't work.

96 cadillac radiator fans

No the radiator fans do not have anything to do with the A/C, they help keep the motor cool in traffic. It sounds like you might have done some damage to the wiring with the jury rig repair job.

Where is a fan control module on a 96 vw jetta trek

switch the ignition on. disconnect the fan switch connector on the radiator. the connector plug should have three pins (if two then its easier). you can follow a diagram, but you can connect the thin wire's pin with one of the thick ones (dont worry, the wrong one wont short anything). the fan should go on at low speed. then connect the thick wire that worked to the other thick wire. the fan should go on at full speed. please ensure the ignition is on to test the full speed one as it doesnt operate with the ignition off. if neither works then check the fan control module. its under your water bottle. remove the water bottle then two screws will remove that unit. btw. they never give in, but maybe this is a first.
