    All the other gauges work fine. Additionally, the radiator fans do not come on.

    Honestly dont know about the rad fans not working because this is a new model and i dont know if it has sensors in the actual radiator or if they are controled from switches on the engine block or the head ,I normaly only get older cars that the owners cant afford to pay dealer prices for repairs ,i would say that thhe temperature gauge is seperate to the fan sensor but i could be wrong ,anyway when the AC is turned on the cooling fan should run on low speed straight away ,if its not then its a supply problem but where ?? i wouldnt like to say because mainly we dont have many american cars here in spain ,petrol is too expensive mainly also the reliability is nowhere near as good as a VW or a mercedes .But mainly the cost of fuel and the road tax on this sort of car . is astronomical here evan more so ireland where it would cost you around 1500euros in road tax alone ,here in spain it would be around 250/350 euros depending on the local authority,Then insurance as well for a monster car like this.thats why the diesel is popular here because its cheaper to run ,a small car can return 50/60mpg here with no problem and diesel is cheaper that petrol but only just .

'05 Grand Am 3.4 V6 Temp Gauge not Working all of a sudden.


Sounds like a temp sensor or wiring problem.
You may only have one sensor for both the gauge and the engine computer.
If the computer temp sensor fails, or is not sending a signal to the engine computer, the fans will run as a precaution to keep the engine from overheating.
If you have replaced the correct sensor, it could be a wiring problem, or the engine coolant could be low enough to not touch the sensor.
If the coolant sensor is not sending a signal, the check engine light should also be on.

Temp/gauge not reaching normal working temp-richer


the first thing to check is to feel if the radiator is hot, if the radiator feels hot and the engine is also hot the coolant is circulating ok then the problem is more than likely electrical, the temp gauge gets its signal from the engine control module the coolant temp sensor sends coolant temp signal to engine control module for engine managment purposes then passes it to instument pack/gauge, if the sensor was at fault you would have engine running problems also,with poss fault codes logged, if the engine and rad are cold/only warm after the engine has been run for 15 mins or so it sounds like the thermostat is stuck open but you have changed that. i have had faulty new ones in the past and have had to test them in a pan of boiling water, hope this is some help to you.

Radiator fan not working in 93 Dodge Spirit V-6. Temp gauge in instrument cluster inside works fine. Is there a separate or dedicated coolant temp sensor for rad fan, different than the temp sensor...


in fuse box there should be a relay marked "fan" swap it for another relay say from heater and see if this fixes problem, also check if fan spins freely, it may be causing fuse to blow if it is a bit old& seized

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.

Put in a new water pump and thermas stat and the gage still goes to hot


Do you have access to a non contact laser temp gauge?
If so shoot the thermostat housing and see if the gauge is correct.

If the gauge is off from the laser then replace the engine coolant temp sensor,
If the gauge is correct then double check the thermostat installation,is it in backwards? or maybe you got a bad thermostat.

did you flush the entire system when you replaced water pump?

Electric cooling fans will work.


The fans are actuated by coolant temp in the radiator. It is possible to have overheated coolant in the radiator, causing the steam, and your engine not overheating...the temp sensor for your engine is reflecting the engine temp, not the temp of the coolant in the radiator. You problem could be a bad temp sensor at the radiator...not allowing the fans to come on. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!

2006 Dodge Magnum keeps overheating


Observe the car's engine as it runs for 10 minutes to ensure that the electric fan for the radiator is coming on, if not either the fan relay, fan's coolant temp. sensor, or the fan itself is bad, try the relay first it is the least expensive, if this is the type of vehicle that has no electric fan replace the clutch fan.
