Two fans are fitted so that if the engine gets hoter when the first fan is running the second will kick in....at a slightly higher temp.to check fan is working run a wire from the battery to the fan....if it starts then all okay.

I dont think my fan is working


there is a fuse for every load on the car, or car will catch fire. sooner or later......
the other fact is , many fuses are shared. some have 15 loads. (park)
think fan is working, ?
which one.?
1: cab heater
2: A/C condenser fan (extreme front of car)
3: the RAD fans, (see behind RAD)

tell fan? and I can tell which fuse.
the glove box guide , has a fuse page. lost that?

my guess, ? is the fan is OUT side the drivers CAB
"think" tell me its fan 2 or 3 above.
the tests for those fans is in the FSM.

the A/C fan turns on if A/C or defrost is selected. unless its
N.Pole weather. (it has logic that cuts this fan , under some wild conditions (unstated by you) what country? what latitude?.

the RAD fan, comes on , if you. (location not stated so, wild guess...)
1: drive 20miles
2: park and idle
3: as coolant passes 200F, near 230F, the rad fans come on
this is because the RAD is near useless , parked. (no air flow)

The FSM covers these tests.

Car overheated, we filled all fluids, replaced wires and plugs and acabin filter..now there is no heat


Did you re-fill radiator when engine cool, rad cap off and heater turned on? If not, do it with heater turned on and allow engine to get up to operating temperature and rad fan comes on once or twice, indicating coolant returning to rad for cooling . Keep an eye on coolant level and top up as required, then after fan has come on and off a couple of times, put your rad cap on properly and top up coolant return bottle to proper level. This should bleed out the air and get heater working properly again.

2001 mitsubishi over heating i have replaced the radiator,thermostat and car still heats up unless i turn on the heater so the fans will run , should the fans be on at all times what else should i check.


Did you make sure to have heater (not defrost) running while you refilled cooling system after repairs ? If not, try refilling with cap off rad, and heater on, and allow coolant to get to operating temperature, where cooling fan at rad should come on. I usually allow fan to come on at least 2-3 times before I put rad cap back on, to insure all air is out of the system. If rad fan doesn't come on when it should, you may have found your problem. If still heats up after that, get back to us and we'll assist further on diagnosing problem. Let us/me know how you make out.

Rad fans stay on when ignition is off audi 100e


should turn off after time, because of the age im not sure if it has a rad fan switch on side of rad, if so its that, unplug and it will stop, replace it, bear in mind it can stay on for upto 3 minutes after a journey, you can increase the temp to stop this coming on so early.
if no rad switch on newer they suffer a bad etc, please note your colour when ordering.

1996 saturn sl2 fan coming on late an over heating


Start with engine cool, & remove radiator cap. Check level in rad & fill to an inch or so from top of rad. Start car & turn heater on.(not defrost)
Now let it run until engine gets up to normal operating temperature & let it run until rad fan comes on & off, 2 or 3 times. Rev engine slightly every so often just to help disperse air in system faster. Fill rad as needed during this time. After you do that, and fan has come on & off 2 or 3 times, put rad cap back on & fill return bottle to proper mark, then see how it is.
I suspect it's just air in system & this should cure that . If not get back to me.

2002 pt cruiser overheating was told i need a new raditor and thermostat for 1 grand sounds fishy


Flush rad & change coolant & thermostat. Check operation of rad fan, & make sure it is coming on when engine reaches normal operating temperature. Be sure to bleed air out good when refilling rad/cooling system. Start engine & turn heater on when refilling & let rad fan come on & off at least 2 or 3 times before putting cap back on rad, and refill rad as needed as you do this. then fill return bottle to proper level & see what happens.

CHECK YOUR SPEED FAN RELAY ONE SIDE IS FOR YOUR AIR CONDITIONING YOU HAVE HI AND LOW RELAYS

Radiator whines and overheats when not moving


Have someone flush cooling system & check condition of rad for debris in front of rad & blow or spray it out as necessary. Next time it runs hot, turn your heater temperature up high, blower fan on high, and see if gauge starts to come back down a little. If it does, my guess is your rad needs replacing, or at least consider trying a good reverse flushing of the system first, then rad.

Overheating


First you need to make sure the fans are coming on and if they are make sure they are coming on when the car is over heating because there is a fan relay by your fuses if its going bad it wont turn the fans on or it willl only turn them on sometimes..

1992 5.0 camaro no cooling fan except with ac


Yes there is a relay, but first answer this question, do you know the fans don't come on until the engine temp is above 230+ degrees F.? That is almost in the hot zone. run a scanner on the engine and watch the ECT sensor temp reading to verify proper cooling fan operation, a quick test to see if the system works is to unplug the ECT sensor, the fans will go into failure mode and turn on to avoid damage to the engine.
