Underhood, in the Power Distribution Box, check the position 9, 40AMP (MaxiFuse) for Cooling Fan Relay.

Graphic details can find in your 2000 Ford Taurus Owners Manual (page 137)

Hope thats help.

Look at each one individually, pull them out "one by one" and look for a part number and match it up with the new relay you just purchased. If you can't see a part number anywhere, look at size of relay and see how the electrical plug matches up to where it is installed. I am sure the high speed cooling fan relay is located at the left of battery behind headlamp in the relay center box #1

My car is overheating the temp will go down a little when it is moving fast but as I slow down it climbs back up. I think its the fan. How do I know if the relay is bad? Does it look like a bad fuse would?

relays are much harder to check,, but try this , under the hood your going to have another fuse block, it will have the relays in it for the fan, there should be more than one that are alike, remove the one that says its for the fan, and swap it for one of the other ones, thats the same, normally if the fan comes on, your ok as far as a relay problem, but you just never know,, when was the last time you flushed the radiator,, it may need flushing depending on how many miles are on the fluids in it now, also,, your thermostat could be stuck open , which wouldn't allow the water to stay in the radiator long enough to cool as required. these are fairly inexpensive repairs that can help with your cooling problems. make sure the fins of your radiator are clear of debris ,, you can take an air hose and blow out any bugs or other stuff thats collected on them,, be sure to not hit the fins, they are very easy to mess up,, if your pretty god with electrical stuff I can give you a link of a way to check a relay,,

2002 ford taurus overheats. Just replaced radiator, waterpump, thermostat and heater core. what else can i do to repair. also, ford flushed the system.

About the only thing that you didn't list is the cooling fan. Are you sure that it's working properly? Drive the car until the engine starts to get hot. After awhile you should hear the cooling fan come on. After you have driven the car for a while, park it and open up the hood. If the upper radiator hose is almost too hot to touch, then check to see if the coolant fan is running. If it isn't, then turn the AC switch to "AC MAX". If the fan still doesn't come on, then a malfunction is indicated. Try to locate the fan control relay and swap it with another relay that has the same part number. Use a relay that will allow the engine to run. Allow the engine to reach operating temperature and see if the fan comes on after switching the AC switch to "AC MAX". If the fan now operates, then replace the relay. I hope this is helpful to you. Thank you for trying If this does not solve your problem, then post a comment and I will respond by getting into more advanced diagnostics.

2001 ford taurus cooling fans are not working. relays check out

had the same problem with mine. now for all you know it all folks out there, i will tell you what the problem is provided that you know for sure the fans do work by jumper wiring it to the battery. on an 01 taurus look to the right side of ur battery toward the bottom and u will see a small black box held in by plastic tabs unhook the box and remove the plastic cover. there is a relay inside the box that also controls the cooling fans.replace that relay and start up your car and ur fans will now work. i know this for a fact.

2000 Ford Taurus, V6, auto trans, new thermostat installed, still over heating, not sure if cooling fans are starting. Checked all fuses. Any ideas?

first i would check the cooling fan relays, when the temp gauge gets anywhere between over half and overheating you should hear the relays switch(it will make a clicking sound). but do not let the car overheat! Secondly the fans are controlled by the cooling fan temp switch/sender, this is located on the radiator, and you should check to see if the fan is getting power by using a volt-meter to check for the proper 12 volts. Finally if they still do not kick on you will need to replace the cooling fan motor(s).

1992 Ford Taurus with a 3.8l V6 the cooling fan

The Taurus has Two temp sensors. One for the dash, which is isolated, then one for the PCM, it also controls when the fan relay should actuate. Its a 2 wire sensor, just above the thermostat. If you remove the harness from that sensor, and the cooling fan comes on, at any temp, (should take 5- 10 seconds) then thats your fault.

My car keeps overheating while it is idling.

If it's only happening while sitting at a stop light and idling, the problem is probably in the cooling fans. Turn your A/C on high and pop the hood. Check your cooling fans to see if they're running. If they aren't running, it's the fan relay. In my 99 Taurus, the high speed fan relay is located in a slim black box next to the battery, it's the large square relay right up front. Use a known working relay of the same size and pop it into this relay. If the fans turn on, there's your problem. Replace the relay. Try the same with the A/C on low, but this relay is in the power distribution box (number 31). The 2002 may have a CCRM (Constant Control Relay Module). The CCRM is an expensive part (over $100.00). You'll be able to tell because the CCRM is a very large box that is mounted next to the battery and contains relays that are not replacable. It'll have a part number followed by a large letter/number. You'll need this part number and large letter/number to order the new.
