The fans are set ,, if the car thermostat hasn't released and rotated the inner water , they may not have come on yet , but the answer to your question is no, Not until the sensors detect a temp that turns them on

Truck will start but engine dies and service engine soon light comes on/truck was idleing fine for 10 minutes then began to hesitate then shut off when first happened


When the engine dies the Check eng light is supposed to come on. You need to do a fault code test on the OBD2 engine control module.

Radiator fan always engaged when AC is on


Radiator fan is supposed to blow anytime the A/C is on. Thats how you check to see if a fan is working, cause its supposed to blow anytime the A/C is on , but not neccesarily anytime the engine is running.

Air conditioner in my 2004 volkwagon passat blows cool for a few minutes than blows warm. I had dyed ran through for leakes, recharged and filled with freon and that didn't seem to fix it. Help


You need to check and see if the cooling fan (electric) on the radiator is coming on. If this fan does not come on the high side pressure will go over 400psi and turn off the compressor until the press. drops. either the cooling fan motor is bad, the cooling fan relay or the fuse for the cooling fan relay. you can check the cooling fan by removing the cover of the power steering reservoir and pulling the wiring harness out from under the bracket. the fan has two wires in its connector, one red and one brown (there may be a tracer color on either one) these two wires are heavy gauge, like #10. unplug the harness and feed power to the connector on the fan side and see if its spins. If it works your problem is probably the fuse or relay. If it doesn't it may be seized or stuck or burned out. Reed, Aquidenck Motors

Bailey19@i hav a 1991 h-accord ex. I have two fans. once i turn the engine off. one of the fans starts running until i disconnect the battery cable.


It actually supposed to work like this. It should turn off in a couple of minutes. Give it a try. Wait for like 10 min to see if it will stop.
