I had the same exact problem in my chevy van and it was so easy and cheap to fix. Its the blower motor resister which is typically held on by two screws mine was located right next to the blower motor under the hood on passanger side. If u got a manual its easy to find. I found one for your car for $20.79 which is for a 4 cylender by googling it. good luck

How to fix a fan that won't quit running in a 2006 gmc denali


Yes there is a fan fuse, see your owners manual, but will need to be replaced every time you want to drive the truck. The easiest way is to remove the + battery cable to save your battery from dying until you can replace the fan itself. Its not running hot or anything? This can be a safety feature to cool engine if it is.

Tip

How to test and replace radiator cooling fan.


Hi.

Here a tip illustrating steps to test and replace the radiator cooling fan and the parts that may cause cooling fan malfunctioning.

Before replacing the fan, make sure that the fan is really faulty.
Read volts at fan contacts or jump the fan wiring to energize the fan directly.Ensure that fan blades are not blocked.

If the fan is OK, then the faulty part is either thermostat or fan relay.Ensure also that you have tested the 15A fuse in the junction block and the 40A fuse located in the Power distribution Center (PDC).

Here a diagram showing the location of the fan relay:

Finally, here below the steps required to replace the fan. The procedure is quite simple.

  • Disconnect the battery negative cable and set it apart.
  • Disconnect the electrical connector to the radiator fan.
  • Undo the bolts that hold the top fan housing and fan assembly (this is called Radiator Shroud).
  • Remove the Radiator Shroud housing.The radiator shroud will come out with the fan sliding toward the top side.
  • Install the new fan performing the operations in reverse order.

Here a diagram showing radiator shroud and cooling fan assembly:

Hello Sir! I have a1993 Ford Escort LX 1.9L Engine Station Wagon. My radiator fan turns on only when the temperature reaches almost to the red mark. When the rad. fan comes on, the fan stays on only for...


It sounds like either your temperature sender is U/S(but you replaced it right),or there is a problem with the relay that it operates(check this first)or short the sender wire/s and you will then know for sure which one it is.

The butterfly pivots on the throttle body can collect up residue,and can sometimes be cleaned with thinners if you can work it in whilst moving the pivot and then lubricating with light oil or possibly even WD40.

Otherwise it means stripping it apart to polish the shaft and journals.Remember to also lube the cable to offer least resistance and a short term fix might be fitting a slightly stonger spring.

Please leave fair comment if this has helped you.

thanks

Cooling fans


Yes, if the sensor didn't fix it, it is probably a relay problem. Chrysler has a habit (my truck especially) of using underrated relays that fuse in the closed position.
Power from the battery goes to the relay directly and that's the only place that the circuit would be opened to turn off the fans.
