There is "coolant temperature sensor" its located on the drivers side of the engine on the back towards the firewall. Have you checked your cooling fans? I have replaced a lot of these for the electric motors going bad. Good luck hope this helps.

Where is the engine fan relay located on 2000 lincoln ls v6


There is no relay on the cooling fan circuit.
If the cooling fan is not operating, check fuse #105 (20 AMP), in the underhood junction box, right front of engine compartment.
If fuse is good then test to make sure fan is getting power.
If no power then could be bad cylinder head temperature sensor, hydraulic fan solenoid, a/c cycle switch or the PCM.
If it has power but doesn't come on then fan motor is bad.

My 2005 equinox cooling fans come on for a few seconds &shut off making engine over heat &OVERHEATING What is the problem?


Should be a relay somewhere in the engine compartment - may be failing. You may be able to switch with another relay to diagnose.
Check your owners manual under fuses and relays.

Renault laguna engine fan not coming on and engine overheats and red warning light comes on and says to stop. coolant ok but everything gets really hot. ok when doing long journey but not when stopping and...


Hi,
The problem would be the radiator cooling fan.
  • Check first the relay, interchange that relay from similar one in the fuse box in the engine compartment.
  • Check the radiator fan motor, pull down the fan motor and directly connect it to the battery.
  • Check the cooling fan thermo switch, it is located underneath/side of the radiator assembly. To check it, just get a paper clip and short the socket connector, fan should run if not the relay has a problem or the fan motor is already malfunctioning.
Hope that helps you out.
Tanks for asking FixYa!

Engine cooling fan not running checked fuse ok


I would check the fan first disconnect the electrical connectors on it and use a pair of home made jumper cables and run it from the battery. If it works move unto relay if it doesn't you've found the culprit.
Next check relay in the fuse box. Coolant tempertant switch and its circuit aka thermal switch in the water jacket by the t-stat.

Radiator fan not stopping even when i turn off the car and remove the keys. this is leading to battery drain


Radiator fan is supposed to start working after the temp reaches a certain limit. And it is supposed to run til the temp reaches a certain lower limit. So when you switch off the engine and walk off the fans must be running to cool the water to that lower limit. Unless you seen that it runs well past that and does not stop at all. Does it start running when you start the engine? And runs throughout the time the car is running, which it should not. The relay seems to be out. It is this relay that controls the running of the fan. or the temp gauge. If the temp gauge is giving wrong temp then the relay has to keep working. Please check both, the relay and before that the temp gauge.

The radiator cooling fan is not working. Upon


assuming fuse and relay are good..no fan should be running when the engine is cool/cold, the only time the fan should be running when it reach over operation temperature which then the fan kick on to bring the temperature back down to it operation temperature. both fan work in sync with one another, addition cooling is needed when the ac is running. when the last time have you replace thermostat and Thermos sensor/switch. I would replace both unit if you have not done so. The thermos/switch will turn the fan on when it reach certain temperature and cut off when it sense the temperature drop in the engine.
