You could have as many as 2 -3 fuses and 2-3 relays controlling the current to the fan motors check them first just cause they are blowing doesn't mean they are working properly if they blow all the time that will keep the head pressure in you ac compressor to low and not cool right or you might need some freon that's where Id start

You may find that the cooling fans only run at half speed when the a/c is on they might be set that way & run at full speed when the engine starts to overheat (in stop & go traffic) the a/c may need regassing that's why it is not cooling properly.....hope this helps...... cheers..

Where is the cooling fan relay-there are several under hood in relay box but they're not labeled


You are correct the high speed relay is bad. The cover to the fuse box and owners manual should tell you the location

Rover 25 1.4 2004 hot engine and radiator fan problem


Yes, it is possible to install a thermostat backwards, though unlikely. If the thermostat isn't opening properly, the hot engine coolant won't be flowing over the cooling fan switch and give you high temps. I would first determine if the thermostat was opening at all, and if it is, is it opening at the proper temp. I have had many new thermostats that, while new, didn't work correctly. To check the cooling fan motor, turn on the AC(if equipped) and the fan should engage. If no AC, disconnect the cooling fan switch, and the fan should engage. Check for power and ground at the fan motor. If you have both power and ground, the fan motor is faulty

Cooling fan won't come on when I turn on the AC


Your bigger problem is the compressor not kicking in. The cooling fan is not coming on because there is not enough high side pressure to turn the fan on. I would start by checking power to the compressor, fuses and relays would be inspect. Check to make sure there is the proper charge of refridegerant in the system.

Compressor and fans do not turn on until rev engine


I passed this question the first time I read it, so I will take a stab at it now.
The fans don't come on until the compressor has pumped the freon pressure up to say 150 or 200 psi. And the compressor clutch has to have voltage to engage the clutch.
I wonder if the clutch is going and needs 14 volts instead of 12 to engage ? Or the relay that powers the clutch ?
Speeding up the engine would increase voltage from the alternator.
This is assuming the serpentine belt is tight and everything else is working correctly.
I think I would swap the relay with another and put a meter on that circuit to the ac clutch to see what it takes to engage it.

Started running hot when the ac was on. when i turned the ac off the temp. went down. when i got in a 25 mile speed zone the temp went back up.


If the clutch on your radiator fan is broken the fan will not spin fast enough to cool the engine. Make sure your fan shrouds are in place, otherwise the air will not be sucked through the radiator properly.

Your radiator may be clogged, the radiator cap may be broken, the thermostat may be sticking, a hose may have collapsed

It takes a good 20 to 30 minutes of driving to reach normal operating temperature. The thermostat was changed but no change in the time to heat up


First, turn on the heater full blast and confirm that the heat temp takes that long.... I am suspecting that your temp sensor is bad and giving you a false reading.....

1990 Geo Metro. Driving down the road with the a/c on the car loses power and starts slowing down. Also hear a sound, like compressed air being released the wife says under the car behind the front seats,...


It sounds like the ac compressor is building up to much head pressure.Check the cooling fans to see if they come on when the ac is turned on.The cooling fan should come on when the ac is turned on.This keeps the head pressure down so the freon keeps cool enough to cool the vehicle.Check the cooling fan,or fans to see if they are working when the ac is on,let me know if I can help you any more.

Kia over heats when air is on only


your AC cooling fan is not working properly, most vehicle has two fans, one for the radiator and another for AC, both work in sync with one another; if one cooling fan only working it does not produce enough cooling for both radiator and condenser at the same time; by running ac you producing more heat and its cant cool the engine fast enough with one fan so your engine is overheating when running AC. The temperature sensor could be faulty and need to be replace or your fan motor can also be faulty. Check the fuse first and the relay make sure they are not burn out. sensor cost about 30 bucks get it new, relay 35-40 new used 5 bucks at junk yard, fan get it from a junk yard for 25-30 bucks, new will run over 100 bucks. don't run the air and overheat your motor, it can damage your engine or may blow your radiator. if you do run ac watch the temp very closely, don't let temperature get into the red.

2000 sebring. Overheats with air conditioning on.


I just had my coolant flushed and my radiator cooling fan replaced. The car was slightly overheating and would "gargle" in the coolant bowl after I turned the engine off. It turned out to be the radiator was clogged up on one side.

I went full tilt and replaced the radiator, water pump, thermostat, radiator cap and timing belt. I have 85,000 miles on the car and it was about time to do these things anyway. It is running like a new car now.
