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

Overheating when I sit idle.


Over heating the engine is a serious concern. With the hood raised you should hear the motorized fan turn on just behind the radiator as the engine requires additional cooling.. If you look in from the rear of the radiator you should see the fan blades.

This electric powered motor operates on a thermostat and when the engine temperature rises this fan should come on. I'm assuming from your description that when driving and air is flowing through the radiator as the car travels the engine is nor overheating.

Check fan motor thermostat, check fan motor and check wiring.

Why is the cooling fan always running when car gets warm on my 2003 hyundai elantra


It is easier to cool a warm engine that to cool an engine at almost over heat condition. So manufacturers run the fan as soon as the engine gets to operating temperature and that gives the cooling system more control of the heat in the system

CHECK TO SEE IF BOTH COOLING FANS RUNNING ARE RUNNING WHEN ENGINE RUNNING START OVERHEATING IF COOLING FANS NOT WORKING CHECK COOLING FANS LARGE FUSES IN THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT OR YOU COULD FAULTY COOLING FANS THERMO SWITCH BOTTOM LEFT SIDE OR RADIATOR.IF COOLING FANS IS WORKING WHILE ENGINE RUNNING.RADIATOR CORES AND HEATER CORE COULD BE CLOGGED.COOLANT SYSTEM NEED FLUSHING. THE THERMOSTAT PARTIALLY CLOSED CAUSE ENGINE OVER HEAT.CHECK WATERPUMP WEEP HOLE IF LEAKING WATER PUMP NEED REPLACING.

The truck is overheating every time the a/c is on but the thing is when the a/c is turning off and on every 10 seconds, and engine looses much power with a/c on... thanks


{: ) If the engine running performance is well and good without the a/c, observe the a/c compressor performance and cooling. A cycling compressor can be caused by high pressure on the discharge side. The higher the pressure, the more heat will be generated specially at the a/c condenser. Engine overheating and poor a/c cooling has one common factor: the engine cooling fans. Normally when you turn on a/c, additional load and heat will stress the engine. For the cooling fans, there is a low and hi speed. If these cooling fans do not operate at precise timing and speed, the heat generated by the condenser and radiator will combine and rise up to a critical level. So better check carefully the condition and operation of your cooling fans. Check also the fan relays and fuses.
I just hope it's not a module issue, it will need more diagnostics, and very costly ,too.

Why does the fan keep running on 2005 jetta after turning off


You are talking about the thermo electric cooling fan, its operation is independent of the car's electical system. It is switched on and off by the engine temperature. When you park, the engine heat soaks upward to heat the thermostat turning the fan on. It will run until the engine cools down and the thermostat switches it off. Quite normal operation.
