SOURCE: 2004 Jaguar x type electric radiator fans not operating

check out with your dealer as you might have a recall to fix this problem.
XT303-S932
X-TYPE
DATE 01/03
MODEL
2002-03 MY
X-TYPE
VIN
C00294-C91719
Overheating - Cooling Fans Inoperative - Replace Module Prior To Retailing - Service Action S932
This Service Action Applies to Vehicles That Have Not Been Retailed
Issue:
The cooling fan module on X-TYPE vehicles may fail under certain circumstances. There are various root causes but the design and quality of the printed circuit board within the cooling fan module are the most significant. The NAND gate used in the circuit is detective causing multiple failure modes, this can result in high engine temperature and overheating due to the cooling fans not operating.
A change has been implemented in production from VIN C91720. On these vehicles a 'Philips' printed circuit board has been used that has a modified voltage spike protection strategy.
Action:
To prevent customers from experiencing this issue, install the latest specification cooling fan module on 2002-03 MY X-TYPE vehicles within the above VIN range that have not been retailed.
PROCEDURE
1. Install new cooling fan module (see Workshop Manual, JTIS CD ROM, section: 303-03, SRO 26.25.38).
Parts Information
Warranty Information:
Warranty claims should be submitted quoting S932 in place of the warranty fault code together with SRO: 26.25.38 and the relevant part number. This will result in a labor time allowance of 0.8 hours to replace the cooling fan module and payment for the part used. Should the vehicle be brought back into the workshop for this action alone to be undertaken, an additional labor time allowance of 0.1 hours can be claimed quoting SRO: 10.10.10 for drive in/drive out.
Warranty claims should be submitted quoting the information found in the table. This will result in payment of the stated time and, where applicable, parts/miscellaneous expense codes.
The options that allow for drive in/drive out may only be claimed when the vehicle has been brought in to the workshop for this action alone to be undertaken.
The SROs and parts items listed above have been included for information only, there will be no requirement to enter the parts or SROs onto the claim.
NOTE: Always perform a DDW claim search first to determine whether this service action has been performed on this vehicle. The warranty selection under the vehicle inquiry will give a listing of all claims against the vehicle. If this service action number appears in the program code field, do not perform this service action.

SOURCE: Radiator fans turn on intermittantly without engine on

The rad fan on this modle is ment to run when ever needed, even with the engine off. call or stop into your dealer to confirm and have them point out the coolant temp sensor, they are there for you and are willing to help. ask to talk to a tech.

SOURCE: The radiator fan comes on

No,there is usually another on the head or the lower edge of the radiator.Depends on the engine model it may not be in this cluster area but at the other end of head,and may be only single terminal head or 2 wire plug.Hope this helps or post engine and vehicle model numbers and I may be able to supply more precise location for you.I assume that the air conditioning is off as this will actuate fan also.

2011 Aveo: temperature gauge moves up to quickly then fluctuates over halfway mark. Engine does not appear hot. What's wrong and how to fix.


Could be temperature sensor if car is not overheating.
make sure your coolant level is good.
Just to make sure you know this. The radiator fan is activated by the coolant temp in engine. The radiator fan can come on even if the car is turned off.
Something I would check first. Look at the radiator fans. If you have 2 one will come on and off with the A/C. The other will come on when the engine gets to operating temperature. As long as the engine temp is in normal range the engine fan should stay on. When temp seems to rise above normal make sure the fan is running.
I had a issue years ago where the fan relay would get very hot(hot compared to the other relays) and would open and the fan would go off. When the relay cooled down it would close and the fan would run again. I fixed by changing the relay.

Overheating


Have the Radiator cooling fans checked. There are Relays and the Temperature sensors activate the Relays which control the fans. The antifreeze level should be visible in the overflow tank.

The temperature sensors work off of the engine temperature. Usually 1 sensor controls the water temperature gauge or light and the other temperature sensor operates the Relays and signals the ECM about operating temperatures.

2000 daewoo leganza is overheating, leaking anti freeze, and water. what is wrong?


sound like thermostat sticking close.replace thermostat and radiator pressure cap.if already done.you could have faulty water pump.if engine overheating at long slow traffic line or setting at a stand still.the engine cooling fans should be running, check and see if cooling fans running if not,check cooling fans fuses and relays.if all is good,hot wire make sure coolings fans okay.if all is good,code scan vechicle for faulty engine coolant temperature sensor and ecm problems.you need a code scanner where you can check live data check see if coolant temperature sensor reading correctly if engine coolant temperature is 190 degrees the coolant sensor. the scanner suppose to show 190 degrees in temperature if not it reads 80 or 90 degrees the engine coolant temperature sensor is faulty need replacing.if all is good check engine oil if look like milk shake blow head gasket will cause over heating.to be on the safe side i would replace thermostat and radiator pressure cap first.to make sure engine coolant circulating through radiator and engine block.

The water tank boils a lot when the car is driven for about 15 to 20 minutes and it begins to spill out. this prevents the cars from running smoothly and easily. what should be done to solve this problem?


First check to make sure you have no oil reidue in your cooling system. What you describe is a common symptom of a blown head gasket or other combustion chamber leak. Also check your oil and make sure it doesn't have a milky appearance. If both of those check out, run the car with the radiator cap off and let it get up to normal operating temperature. You should see the coolant flowing through the radiator. If you don't see the flow at normal operating temperature, suspect the thermostat. When the car reaches normal operating temperature, the fan should also cycle on and off. If it doesn't check your fuses and relays to make sure they're OK. If they're good, try applying a seperate 12V source to the fan. If it powers up then suspect the fan's thermostatic control. Good luck.

1989 Nissan Maxima Radiator fans and Temp gauge not working.i have a 1989 Nissan Maxima and the radiator fans do not come on. I have replaced the Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor and this did not work....


-The radiator fan will be kick on ONLY when the temperature reach about 190-200. Depend on the sensor that you have now.
You can test it by boil it and hook up a digital multi meter to it.
and make sure use a temperature gage to test with, so you know how hot the water when it kick on.

Good luck
