Check the fan relay, it is the only relay inside the power distribution box, under hood on the lefthand fender just behind the air cleaner box. This relay sometimes has bad or dirty connections. Also check the temperature sending unit that activates this relay, it is located in the heater hose directly under the ignition coil, the hose runs between the thermostat housing and the firewall, there are two sensors here the single wire sensor is for the dash guage. Hope this helps, let me know.

The primary radiator fan does not come on.


Check Maxi fuse #3 60 amp in the under hood electrical center #1 .This is power for the #1 cooling fan . Also check the #1 fan control relay in the same under hood electrical center .
These vehicles use 2 360 mm (14.2 in) cooling fans to aid air flow through the radiator. Electric motors drive the cooling fans. These motors are attached to the radiator. Motor size varies with each engine option.
A coolant temperature switch activates the fan motors. This switch regulates voltage to the cooling fan relay. This switch operates the fan whenever the engine coolant temperature exceeds 110°C (230°F). For location and diagnosis, refer to Electrical Diagnosis. A transducer can also activate the circuit, depending on the A/C compressor head pressure going to the condenser.
The engine cooling fan relays provide the high current required for the cooling fan motors using a low current signal coming from the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). This signal is a function of various inputs.
Refer to Electrical Diagnosis for further information and diagnosis of the cooling fan relay.

The engine Temp gauge got real close to "H"but went down soon as i got rolling.Also engine cooling fans not coming on. even when i engaged AC. the fans are electric. . .?


The reason that you drive and engine cools down is that cool wind is blowing in the grille in front of the car and when you stop, that natural wind stops cooling it down.
First check the fan fuse. If it is OK check the fan itself: just apply wires on the connector of the fan and attache it to the battery (dont mix "+" and "-") If fan will not start, replace the fan motor. If it starts check for the Fan Motor Relay

Engine coolant fan wont come on. The fan motor is fine. whats next?


You still have many other components in that system that has to be in working order for the cooling fan to work properly. The cooling fan is turned on when engine temp reaches a predetermined temp, usually around 220-230 degrees F. the ECT (engine coolant temp) sensor siganls the ECM (Engine Control Module) to ground the cooling fan relay or cooling fan module(if equipped) and if the cooling fan fuse is good and the fan has power to it the realy will complete the ground for the fan to run. You may need to have a qualified technician diagnose the problem if the obvious things like fuses and good grounds are not the problem.

Hope this helps.

Cooling fans are not coming on, what could be the problem?


Either the temp sensor is bad, or the relay is bad. or the fan motor is bad. Or you have a blown fuse.
Look for fuse first.... To test if fan motor is bad disconnect the connector to the fan and jumper it to the battery.if it spins it's good. the other two. use a component locator to find their location and replace. they are inexpensive. Temp sensor is in the cooling circuit (radiator...maybe next to thermostat) the relay will be in a fuse box under the hood.

1996 Honda Odyessey engine cooling fans don't come on and engine on and engine temperature tends to go up. it will only come on when the AC is switched on. i do not need to run the AC all the time but i...


Check all fuses first. if the fuses are okay, disconnect the engine cooling fan connector and using jumper wires, connect the fan motor directly to the battery and ground. If the fan still doesn't work, replace it. If the fan does work, its relay may be faulty. Check in the engine compartment fuse box for the cooling fan relays. Try switching the cooling fan relays and see if the engine fan comes on and the a/c condensor fan stops working. If so, the engine cooling fan relay is faulty. If the engine fan still doesn't come on with a good relay, then check the engine temperature switch located at the passenger end of the front cylinder head. It is supposed to switch (have continuity) when the engine temperature reaches 205 deg F. You can remove the switch and put it in a pot of close to boiling water (212 deg F). If it doesn't have continuity at that temperature, it is defective.

Overheats if left idling but not if driving...cooling fans aren't coming on...what couls be wrong?


the cooling fans on your car are comanded on by the engine control module which reads engine temperature from the temperature sensor . when comanded on the engine control module sends a signal to the cooling fan relays . which in turn runs the current to the cooling fans . So you might want to check the cooling fan relays and make sure the fues for the cooling fans are good and the relays .if the cooling fan fuses and relays are good it could be a problem with the fan motors or the engine control module not reading the right temperature in that case it could mean you have a problem with the temperature sensor

My electric fan wont come on.


First check the fuse,then check to see if the coolant level in the radiator is low,then if you can check the cooling fan relay,and the cooling fan motor to make sure it is good,if all this checks out fine,then replace the coolant sensor,and bleed the cooling system of all the air in it.

Engine over heats and cooling fan does not come on


YOU MIGHT HAVE A BAD COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR. BE CAREFUL CAUSE THE NEW SENSOR CAN BURN THE MOTOR OF THE FAN. GOOD LUCK.

The car over heats when cut it off


It is possible that your cooling fan is not working. First check that the wires going to the cooling fan motor are plugged in. If you have A/C you may have two cooling fans check both. If wires are good. With the engine cold start the car. Let the car run until the engine is hot. See if the fan comes on. If the fan does not come on the motor or the relay are probably bad.
