Question about Chevrolet Lumina

1 Answer

The cooling fans on my 93 chevy lumina won't come on. I've checked the relays, the sensors, the fan motors, everything's good. Would a bad water pump have anything to do with it?

A bad water pump would have nothing to do with the fans not running. Did you check voltage at the fan? When the fan is suppose to be on (when temp comes up unplug the fan and check voltage on the plug that plugs into the fan. They are notorious for their relays going bad.

Eletric cooling fans won't come on / 1992 chevy Lumina


Hi Colton, Check the fuses and operation of the relays, It is unlikely that both motors have failed at the same time. You can check the motor operation by simply taking a cable from the positive battery tower and connecting it to the positive side of each fan in turn. If they run they're fine and the fault is elsewhere. If all relays and fuses check out fine, the problem will be with the temperature sensor. Regards John

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.

Hello, Can you help me? I have a 1993 Chevy Lumina that is overheating when I stop ex. long traffic lights, letting it run while I go to the mac machine etc... once I start driving again its fine. Can you...


Sounds like the cooling fan is not coming on .. could be a bad fan motor or relay .. If you can check it yourself you can try to power the fan up directly and see if that is the problem.

My electric fan wont come on.


First check the fuse,then check to see if the coolant level in the radiator is low,then if you can check the cooling fan relay,and the cooling fan motor to make sure it is good,if all this checks out fine,then replace the coolant sensor,and bleed the cooling system of all the air in it.

On my 1992 chevy lumina neither one of the cooling fans will come on


Make sure the fuse is not blown,or cooling fan relays are not bad.Then check the cooling system to make sure the system is full.If it is low,the coolant sensor will not sense anything,it has to be emerged in coolant to sense.If all this checks out,replace the coolant sensor,for this sensor,is the most likely cause for the problem.

Cooling fans not turning on. Fuses good. Relays good.


The fan will only come on when the water temp. reaches about 80 digrees with the new water pump the temp. is staying low and the fan is not needed. Drive it a while checking the temp. guage if it over heats and the fan doesnt com on then you have a problem if not all is o.k.

Radiator Cooling fans pull or push air (93 Chevy Lumina 3.1 L) ?


A radiator fan is designed to pull air to pull air through the radiator to help cool it, while blowing the air on back across the engine to try to assist once again at keeping the unit running cool as to not over heat.
