Radiator fan do not work


check the all the fuses under the dash and under the hood. if they are good then, you can disconnect the rad fan electrical connector at the fan, then using 2 jumper wires you can jumper the fan motor to see if the fan works. you jumper the fan motor just like you would jumping a car. if the fan runs then you will have to check the fan relay, sometimes you can use another relay in the relay box. if the fan doesn`t work then the rad cooling fan is defective and will have to be replaced.

check the 25 amp fuse that had fan rad on it . Check the fuses under the dash. Finally replace the fan switch in the head as it may not be communicating with the CPU to put power through the fan relay

1997 escort overheats unless the heat is on full blast. Put in new thermostat. Fan work when wired directly to the battery, but does not come on otherwise


Hello and welcome to FixYa! If you have overheating problem, it can lead to multipleissues. You may be running on low coolant that's why the vehicle overheats. Ifthat's the case, please add coolant and make sure that it sits on the rightlevel, too much coolant can cause overheating too for coolant will overflow. The vehicle may have a faulty or worn out radiator blowermotor that's why it overheats. If that's the case then you will need a blowermotor replacement to resolve the issue. If the radiator is clogged with dirt and rusts this issueoccurs too. The coolant doesn't flow normally on the cooling system if it'sclogged. If that's the case, I strongly suggest that you have the radiatorflushed to drain out dirt and rusts. If you think that the radiator served youenough then it's better to have it replaced. Please do check the radiator hoses, If you have worn outhoses it can cause coolant leakage which can result to overheating. A tiny holeis good enough for the vehicle to overheat. A faulty thermostat sensor can cause the issue too. If youhave worn out thermostat, the fan may not trigger that's why the fan won't workwhen under stressed conditions. A blown radiator blower fuse can cause thisissue too so I suggest that you check the radiator blower fuse and replace itwhen necessary. What causes the radiator blower fan fuse to blow? It's becauseof a failing radiator blower motor, If that's the case have the radiator blowerfan motor replaced. If the fluid in radiator doesn't circulate then it meansthat you have a blown head gasket or a faulty water pump. I suggest that you gofor the water pump replacement first specially if you think that it's near theend of it's service life. Usually, water pops out the radiator when engine isreved (a sign of faulty water pump and possible blown head gasket). Hope you find this information helpful enough and thank youfor using FixYa! Have a good one!

I just changed the radiator of my 2001 Maxima and the fan stopped working. It was working fine before I changed it. We checked the fuse, thermostat, wires and they all good. the mechanic told me that the...


The ECU drives a relay which in turn drives the fan. Trace the fan wiring back to the relay and check the plug connection. Does the fan turn freely by hand? If not, replace it. The fan needs a solid ground connection as well as power from the relay.

FORD TAURUS 1996 RADIATOR FAN DOES NOT WORK


Test the fan by unplugging it, and jumping off the battery. This will tell you if the fan motor itself is working or not. If it works, post back and I'll tell you how to check the engine codes, a sending unit on the engine could be nfg and causing the fan to not come on. If the fan doesn't come on when jumped, replace the fan motor.

Radiator Fan relay


Locate the relay in the under hood relay center remove it and swap it with the A/C relay or a relay that looks the same. If the fan still doesn't come on, the fan is not working anymore. If it does come on, go to the parts store and replace the relay. You can use a jump wire to the hot side of the fan from the pos side of the battery to see if the fan comes on. Also run a jump ground. Disconnect the harness to the fan so you don't back feed the ECM. Just use a couple of flat female blade connectors and wires to jump to the battery to test fan. $600.00 is way too much to replace the fan. You can find a good replacement fan assy. at the local wrecking yard for cheap. They work out just fine.
