The thermostat for the fans has failed in the power-on mode. You can either replace the thermostat with a factory unit or if you are handy with automotive wiring, an aftermarket fan thermostat can be added to the circuit to control the fans.

1999 ford Taurus SE Blower motor runs with engine off and drains battery


Is it a temperature-controlled fan? I've seen some cars that run their fans for a few minutes after the car is turned-off, to cool-down the engine. After a few minutes, it will automatically shut off -- it also shut-downs when the "target" temperature is reached.

1999 ford taurus is overheating. Head gaskets have been replaced and it takes awhile for the cooling fan to turn on. What else could be the problem?


Are you sure the head gaskets needed to be replaced was it to stop the leak? Go to an auto parts store leave a deposit and use the tool for free. One tool has a cap that fits on the cooling system and has a pump on top You pump the system up to 15 pounds and look around the engine and the radiator for leaks. This is what your repair shop should have done before they replaced head gaskets. Putt a meat thermometer in the radiator when it is cold start engine. Let run. Put hand on upper radiator hose when the thermostat is starting to open the hose will turn hot right away the thermometer will read 180 to 195 If the engine starts to over heat the thermostat is bad but if it opens the temp will slowly rise to 200 to 215 that will be fully open and around here the fan will turn on and cool the engine down( make sure the air is off or one fan will be on all the time) if fan comes on late replace temp sensor for radiator. If everything works the radiator is probably plugged

I have a ford taurus that the cooling fans will only run when when the ac is on 2002/ engine 3.0 efi/


The cooling fans on this vehicle won't come on unless the a/c is on or until the engine coolant temperature reaches about 220 degrees. Once the coolant has reached this temperature the fans will come and and run until the engine cools down to about 210 degrees and they will then turn off until the temperature climbs up again. The fans usually aren't on at all at highway speeds because enough air is being forced through the radiator to keep everything cool. The true test of cooling fan operation is to allow the car to idle in park with both the a/c and defrost turned off and let it run until the fans come on. When The temp gauge reaches about 3/4 of the way up, give or take a bit, the fans should come on. Keep an eye on the gauge so the engine doesn't overheat just in case there really is a fan control problem but I'd say you'll most likely find that the fans are working properly since they do come on for the a/c. Hope this helps!

My ford excusion vent fan is running even when engine is off. No key in car and I can turn my vents all the way up and it will blow tons of air into car?? Ran battery out overnight.


If this has EATC automatic temp control. You will probably need a blower speed control module. This controls fan speed in all ranges and sounds like it has internally shorted causing this concern.

1998 ford tarus over heating


There is a lot more to the cooling system than the radiator and thermostat. 97 and 98 taurus' are prone to cooling fan failure. They also have issues with the coolant turning to a rusty colored sludge that can plug the radiator, and it let go long enough can eat the fins off the impeller in the water pump even cause it to break free from the shaft.
