You should check the thermostat. There must be a sensor connector on the thermostat housing. If you bypass that connector and the fan runs, then the thermostat is damaged and needs to be replaced. If you follow the radiator hose you will reach the thermostat housing.

My heater fan stays on after car is shut off and drains battery


I assume you mean the radiator cooling fan inside the engine compartment? That is controlled by the temperature sensor. If it is unplugged or has gone bad, the fan(s) will run continuously. To locate the sensor, follow the upper radiator hose down to the intake manifold. You should see a brass sensor to the left of the hose going into the bottom front of the intake. The wiring and sensor may be covered with a heat shield. Check the wiring to verify it is plugged in and/or does not have corroded terminals, otherwise, replace the sensor. It is a brass looking fitting, sort of resembling a spark plug.

1990 plymouth acclaim. radiator fan does not work. Radiator is holding fluid and pressure. runs fine at 55 mph because the air cools the engine> can not stop and go drive in city. Could this be a bad...


You can unplug the fan & put battery voltage to it

It is a dc motor & will run either direction depending
on how you hook it up

If it works then look on the radiator tank near the bottom
for a fan switch,will have a couple wires,will have to drain
coolant to remove

If you find one you can put in a pot on the stove & heat it up
in water & use your meter to check for it to close or come on

Fan keeps running after car is turned off? Sensor or relay problem??


Some cars are designed to have the fan run for a few minutes after you turn the car off. But if doesn't stop until the battery drains, then it might be a faulty switch or temperature sensor.

Or, if the fan stays running when the engine and radiator are cool you have a very cheap problem: The fan thermostat is stuck closed. A new thermostat will fix the problem--the hardest part of replacing it is finding it. Follow the wires from the fan to the switch--it is usually on the bottom tank of the radiator. Drain the radiator first and save the coolant to put back in after you replace the thermostat. NEVER OPEN A HOT RADIATOR.

If that wasn't it then check the following:
  • Check to see that your coolant level is correct. Top up as necessary.
  • Lay your hand on the radiator (with the engine off) and feel if it is as hot at the top as it is at the bottom. If not, your radiator may be clogged and need flushed or replaced. (Flushing is cheap. Replacing the radiator isn't)
  • Do you get heat from the heater? Leave it turned on high and see if your fan stays running the next time. If it takes care of the problem that could mean you have a kinked radiator hose.

Hope this helped (remember comment and rated this).

Replaced cracked radiator in 2000 Chrysler LHS but car still overheating. What could be the problem?


fix the radiator first.because coolant temperature sensor need to be in antifreeze.when antifreeze get up to 190 degrees. the coolant sensor act as a thermostat.it resistance decrease then the pcm will command cooling fans to run.if antifreeze low the coolant temperature sensor not going to work. engine is going to over heat.

Radiator fan is not working


Some toyotas have a coolant sensor NOT to be confused with the Temperature sensor. The coolant sensor is located on the radiator it selt, most likely on the bottom and close to the middle. Replace it and the fans should work as needed. Now a temporary fix, unplug the sensor, this will make the fans run only when the engine is running or the key is on the on position. Good luck.
