A quick way to test the circuit would be to disconnect the temperature sensor and the fan should come on. As a side note the fan should kick on when the thermistor resistance gets down to about 700 ohms.

I assume that by saying you "replaced the sensors" you included the coolant temp sensor? Make sure your grounds are good and check the quality of your coolant and associated hoses, electrolysis is a bear. While checking your cooling system make sure it is bled properly. An air pocket around your coolant temperature sensor will cause an improper reading.

Is your A/C working, if not, is it still attached? If you have removed it, you need to keep the button pushed in the "on" position or else the fan will not run. (on SOME shadows, it's just an odd thing about them) If that's not the case, please follow these steps:

Check the fuse and if applicable the fan relay (should be on the right fender)

Look for chinks, debris, etc in the harness(s)

Check your grounds. These cars are notorious for oil and other leaks, and enough bumps with that much lubricant will rattle a ground bolt free in short order.

If you have been overheating a lot the glycerol has probably done wonders for your electrical connections. Check them.

If nothing else works, hardwire the fan to an ignition switched circuit that is greater then 15A. The fan will simply run when the engine is on now. Always. You can also get creative and install a toggle switch for the fan inside the cabin run straight through the battery. I'd consider that a last resort though.

Best of luck!

My 2003 dodge durango keeps overheating , i just had new radiator put in and it started overheating again but now it is overheating with a very loud screeching noise like a belt sound what could be ca


as for noise will have to inspect under hood,could be fan or belt or pulley ,water pump .these are some things it could...My suggestion for overheating is replace thermostat. If your car has electric cooling fan then it may not be working..turn defrost on and if fan kicks on then fan motor is good..Now this does not mean that fan is working properly because fan is controlled by heat sensor switch that kicks fan on when motor reaches heat range......Things i would have checked....hope this information helps and good luck and Please rate my post...

1994 dodge shadow es 3.0 v6 will not start. when I turn the key I can hear one single click then nothing. All lights work, replaced starter, checked battery terminals and wires for corrosion, fly whee


Replace the starter solenoid. Make sure you hook the wires back properly. Try jumping across the solenoid with cables to see the starter crank. That makes a direction to the starter. That's what the solenoid does. It connects those 2 cable ends together to make the starter crank over.

Definately have a sensor problem...but that may not be all. You can blame the sensor issue on the idling problem. The overheating in park is likely one of 2 things, provided you have adequate coolant. #1 a sticking thermostat or a bad coolant temp sensor not activating your fan at idle. What you should do is have your diagnostic codes read in order to take care of the sensor issue. Most national parts chains such as Auto Zone or Advance will do this at no charge in hopes of selling you a sensor. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful.

Ok, fans work but you should replace temp. sensor so they come on automatic. If the temp gauge inside the car is getting really hot its either because the termostat is stuck closed or your water pump is pumping water to circulate it through the radiator and engine

The relay. There is a black box on the right hand side of the engine at the top corner. It encloses all the relays. Make sure you are looking at the diagram well. Exchange the relays and remove the wiper relays and exchange them with the radiator fan relays. Start the engine, run it for 5 mins and see if they kick-start.
