I have a 1996 chevy lumina and the temperature gauge keeps moving around unpredictably. The fans wont come on. We checked the fuses and relay switch. Could it be the fan motor, or temperature gauge


The gauge is supposed to move. Between 190 and 210 degrees. About a 1/16 to 1/4 inch movement with the needle. If it goes from middle(200 degrees) to hot(260 degrees) and back. Check the coolant level. Air pocket in the engine. Low fans come on at about 210 degrees. High fans come on at 225 degrees. High fans come on when the A/C is turned on. And it works.

Why are the fans not coming on in my 1999 deville


99 Deville - have you checked the large fan fuse(s) under and behind the main fuse/relay box ?? (I think this holds for 99 - 2000+ moved the maxi-fuses to the underhood box on the passenger side.)

Also, are your relays on a mount down near the fans ? Some have had trouble with the wiring/sockets there. 2000 or later moved the relays up to the fuse box itself. There are 3 - Fan 1, Fan 2, and a series/parallel (S/P) relay for slow and fast speeds.

Fans run in SLOW at 224 degrees F, FAST at 236 degrees F if there is no air conditioning or DEFROST function set. In the city or heavy traffic the gauge will go to the first tick mark past 12:00 and the fans come on. As the coolant lowers to 213 degrees F the fans turn off and the cycle repeats.

IF you set an air conditioning function, then fans run in SLOW all the time.

If your fans will not run under any conditions, check the large fuses in the underhood fuse/relay box, as well as the small fuses for the fan relays - there are 3 relays: Fan 1, Fan 2, and S/P (series/parallel): the fans are relay set to series operation (voltage drop) for Slow speed, parallel operation (full voltage) for Fast.

Bought 2001 Lumina.. head gasket was leaking. fixed that n noticed cooling fan motors were not running. Replace all 3 relays n ect n fans started working. Drove it two days n it started runnin hot pulled...


I had a similar problem. Is your temperature gauge pegged to the right as very hot? Or reads always cold, even when hot. If it is a 3100 motor their is a coolant temperature gauge sending unit under the air breather intake that is right next to where you replace the thermostat.

Get a haynes repair manual at a parts dealer, Amazon, or your public library.
On the Chevrolet Lumina, Monte Carlo, & Impala FWD 1995 to 2005 it's under section 3-8 on page 3-6. It goes into great detail, and it's too complicated to explain here. If your sensor is bad, but the wires and fuses are good then the fans won't run.

Your second fan only runs when the air compressor is turning, If your ac compressor is not running then the sensor will not have the passenger fan run.
You have to see if the fan motors are good and then the wiring is good, and no fuses blown. You might blow fuses so have extra blue ones if I remember right. Recheck fuses after testing.

The gas gauge to my 99 lumina doesnt work, the coolant light is on aswell


these are 2 seperate problems, the gas gauge is the gauge sending unit inside the fuel tank, replace it, the coolant light is caused by the coolant level sensor in the side of the radiator, remove it and clean it, if it still indicates low coolant replace it.
