2004 Venture Chevrolet minivan cooling fan circut

Are you talking about the radiator fan? How hot does the engine get in degrees F? Some makes and models, the radiator fan won't turn on till about 220 degrees F. Check for applicable trouble codes, see if any code that refers to the radiator fan circuit or coolant temp sensor? Some of the national brand auto stores will check codes for free.

Of course, as far as overheating in general, you have the thermostat--water pump and other possible issues. Are you losing coolant?

I purchased a used 1998 Volvo S70 2.3 Turbo about 2-months ago that had overheating issues.. I can run the car at idle without it getting hot. When I take it around the block with the A/C on, the...

the 2 fans should both work you have a fan for the a/c and a fan for the water coolant, when a/c is on the fan should be going, depending on a/c settings there could be 2 fans for the a/c as the a/c fan is next to the radiator you can get heat crossover if the a/c is not cooling down. if engine is fine without the a/c on then i would look at the fans.

Why does my fan keep running in my 2003 Volvo S 60 after the car is off?

It can be faulty fan relay.The relay is not turning the system off.Or its wire short issue.Even with ignition off ,the fan relay is getting power so its not letting the fan to turn off.Bypass the fan control relay and see if still the fan works with ignition off or not.

Cooling fan is not working causing an overheat problem. What should I do?

Hi, first verify the sensor is working. If you have a gage, is it reading correctly? If you have only a light, does it come on when the engine is hot? If not, unplug the sensor and connect the wires in the connector to see if the gage or light react. If not, you have a wiring issue. If shorting the connector works but the gage does not read correct, replace the sensor.
If all is good with the sensor, disconnect the fan and use a test light to see if there is power at the connector terminals when the engine is hot. If no power, check the cooling fan relay. If there is power, make sure the blades on the fan connector are not corroded and reconnect. If the motor still doesn't turn, try jumping it straight to the battery with some wires. If the motor will not turn, replace the motor.

The coolant sensor is usually screwed into the top of the engine in the front by the belt or near where one of the large radiator hoses connects to the engine. The relay should be in the relay box in the engine compartment.
Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Relay switch was replace fan is not working what else could cause the fan not to work

Check the fuses that powers the fans and relay to make sure the fans have voltage when the relay energises. Also check the temp sending unit that reads the coolant temperature in the engine, it tells the fan relay to energize and turn the fans on to cool the motor down.

My radiator cooling fan won't kick off and run when the engine gets hot and the a/c is on or ever for that matter. Fan was replaced and still won't run. When I turn on the A/C, I have power all the way to...

Sounds like a bad relay to me. If you jumped the fan to the battery and they kick on, then the motor is obviously good. Replace the high and low speed relays with known working of the same type while running your a/c on high and on low. If they kick on now, you just need new relays. I'd imagine they're not kicking on when the engine is hot because of the relay rather than the sensor.
