There is no symbol for a fuse location on my fuse board or in the picture, does my radiator fan just work of a relay, and if so where can I find this relay


Your fan motor runs off the engines temperature sending unit located on the termostat housing. If this sensor is not working, the gauge inside your vehicle will go to hot right away an indication your sensor is faulty. If you disconect the sensor conection from the fan your far should start working..but it will run and never shut off. This means temperature sending unit needs changing.

97 jeep grand cherokee where is the temperature sending unit location


That sender is either in the intake manifold or the thermostat housing(top radiator hose). It should have one wire connected to it. Use Teflon paste on the threads and don't over tighten.

2002 Cadillac DeVille...radiator cooling fans not turning...coolant boils if car idles too long, ok as long as I am moving. Engine temp normal. What are the easy checks to determine why cooling fans not...


I would recommend checking all of the fuses first. The next step is to see if the fan/fans are functional by connecting a hot wire to the fan motor directly. Try turning on the AC and seeing if the fans kick on then. The most common issue is the radiator temperature sending unit has failed. The only solution for this issue is to replace the sending unit. It is normally located in the bottom of the radiator. This one tells the fans to turn on and off. There is another temperature sending unit that is located in the block and it is for measuring the engines operating temperature.

Where is the temperature sending unit located on a 1971 GMC 350 v8 engine?


The temperature sending unit should be located on the drivers side cylinder head between the number one and the number three spark plugs, that is if it is the original engine.

The tempertature gauge does not work on my jeep what may be the problem?


Could be the coolant temp sensor:

To test it:

Perform this test on a cold or cool engine.
  1. Disconnect the negative (-) battery cable.
  2. Unplug the electrical wiring from the sending unit.
  3. Using an ohmmeter, measure the resistance between the terminal and the sending unit's metal body
    1. Infinite resistance or zero resistance: the sending unit is bad, replace the sender with a new one.
    2. Other than infinite or zero resistance: continue test.
  4. Remove the temperature sender from the engine.
  5. Position the sending unit so the metal shaft (opposite end from the electrical connectors) is in a pot of water. Make sure that the electrical connector is not submerged and only the tip of the sending unit's body is in the water.
  6. Heat the pot of water at a medium rate. While the water is warming, continue to measure the resistance of the terminal and the metal body of the sending unit:
    1. As the water warms up, the resistance goes down in a steady manner: the sending unit is good.
    2. As the water warms up, the resistance does not change or changes in erratic jumps: the sender is bad, replace it with a new one.
  7. Install the good or new sending unit into the engine, then connect the negative battery cable.
  1. With the engine cold, remove the ECT sensor.
  2. Immerse the tip of the sensor in container of water.
  3. Connect a digital ohmmeter to the two terminals of the sensor.
  4. Using a calibrated thermometer, compare the resistance of the sensor to the temperature of the water. Refer to the sensor resistance illustration.
  5. Repeat the test at two other temperature points, heating or cooling the water as necessary.
  6. If the sensor does not meet specification, it must be replaced.

Electrical fans wont kick on, car will run hot if they dont kick in..Tried changing fuses still wont come on..


The fans have a seperate temperature sensor either in the radiator or the block. Follow the fan wires to locate this sensor and unplug the sensor and with the key on touch the wires together. If the sending unit is bad the fans will come on. If the sending unit works the fan motor is bad.

Trying to find out where the temperature sensor is located or maybe its called a switch temperature sensor. I replaced the thermostat and I was told this need to be replaced too


You would only need to replace this if your temperature gauge is not working properly. Just because the thermostat was replaced does not mean the sensor must be too.

There were three different engines offered for that vehicle and there is a separate temp sending unit for the gauge than there is for the computer(PCM). The V6 4.0 SOHC ECT for the PCM and the sending unit for the gauge are both located side by side on top of the thermostat housing. The V6 4.0 EI engine ECT is located on the front of the engine, left of the throttle body, and the sending unit is located in the front of the engine, behind the alternator bracket. The V8 5.0 ECT is located in the front of the engine, below the middle of the ignition coils and the sending unit is in the same area, but toward the driver's side of the engine below the left ignition coil.

It will look similar to this...

Location of the temperature sending unit on a 1991 olds toronado


Ok, you have three sensors on this engine that work together to manage the temperature reading that are sent to the gauge. i recommend checking all three to be safe. i will list the sensors and, locations below.

1. Coolant temperature sensor- Under hood, driver side, upper engine area, above transmission bell housing, mounted in driver side end of intake manifold.

2. Engine Temperature sensor- Under hood, driver side, upper engine area, mounted on rear cylinder head

3. Temperature switch.- Under hood, center, lower engine area, above oil filter, rear of coolant temperature sensor, mounted in engine block
