AC fan motors

I am having a 2003 toyota camry . suddenly both the engine as well as the AC fan motors do not operate. It starts running if we tap the motor but stops if we switch off and switch on the AC. Again we have to tap the motors. Can the problem be rectified without replacing the motors.

Where is the power steering temperature sensor on 1993 Toyota Camry v6

On some Camrys the radiator fan is run by hydraulic pressure from the power steering pump. I think the sensor you mention is the engine coolant temperature sensor, which is in the circuit which operates the fan when the engine becomes hot. If this fails the engine will overheat, yes. The fan does not cool the hydraulic fluid from the pump.

If your power steering fluid gets low the same thing can happen, but you would notice immediately as the steering would become intermittently harder.

My 2003 v6 camry recently overheated. Both alternator belt and 2nd belt recently replaced. No evidence of losing coolant. No change in oil appearance. Replaced coolant reservoir and let idle to...

both fans do not turn on at the same time. one fan is for the AC condensor and the other is for the radiator. A/C turns on one fan, Radiator temp switch turns on the other one. If you have never replaced the thermostat, or done a radiator flush/refill, you should do one now.

AC does not blow cool when car is stopped, air is blowing hot. when car is moving th air becomes cool again.

make sure your electric cooling fan behind the radiator
is running with the a/c on , if not tap on the back of the
housing with a blunt object , but dont break it .
if it starts up , its the motor , if not ,a fuse or relay.
If its not running , repair it or dont use the a/c , as
the high pressure can dammage the compressor.

My camry 1993 engine is heating up while idling or in traffic also when ac is on. drives well on high speed without overheating

You have a radiator fan motor that is not running either due to a thermostatically controlled temp switch,(Located on the back of the radiator) a failed fan relay (in the engine compartment fuse /relay box) or a bad fan motor.
You can troubleshoot by checking for 12V DC to chassis ground at the fan motor temp switch. If you have power in you can jumper with a wire the switch wires and see if the fan runs. If it does not run then you need to check the fan relay and motor.

To test the fan you can run a wire from the battery to the fan and another wire to chassis ground to see if the fan runs. If after directly connecting 12V DC to the fan motor and it does not run the fan has failed.

As far as the you either replace it with another one or... have to figure out which 2 wires control the fan motor and jumper them out to see if the fan runs.

A/C and heat just suddenly quit working

It is most likely the fan motor's internal brushes have worn out. Either you will have to replace the magnetic brushes, or replace the motor all together. There is a tube and wire harness that will have to be removed. Than there is 3 or 4 bolts that hold motor to firewall.

Electrical fans

The cooling fans always receive power form the battery. The relays, when applied, allow the ground to pass onto the fan motors to operate them. Either your relays are stuck in the "active" position, or your fan motor wires (white with the black trace) are getting an unwanted ground. Remove all 3 of the relays, and the magnet clutch relay, see what happens. If the fans quit, the relays are at fault. If the fans continue to run, you have a fan motor ground wire shorted to the ground.
