Question about 1992 Honda Accord

2 Answers

On my wife's 1992 honda accord the cooling fan kicks on after the ignition is turned off. Her battery had died before and I wondered if that may be the source of the battery drain. If so what might be the reason for the cooling fan to kick on after the car is off and where should I look first?

First check the temperature switch for failing closed. you can do this with a test light or ohmmeter. with the car cold, put one test light lead on the battery positive and the other on the temp switch terminal. If your light comes on, replace the switch. If the switch is not failed closed, recommend you replace the fan control module. According to autozone.com, your temperature switch is on the driver side, upper engine area, end of cylinder head, mounted in top of water outlet. The control module is probably in the engine compartment relay box by the battery. If you have questions or your setup differs from what I have explained here, please get back to me.

Fans will not com on wnd driving


Try turning on the a/c while you are driving or sitting still and one of the fans should kick on. You will have an a/c fan which will only turn on when the climate control is operating. The second fa is a cooling fan that kicks on when the coolant temperature rises above about 190 degrees or more. Check the sensor, relay and fuse for the cooling fan and the relay and fuse for the a/c fan. Your engine may not get hot enough to need the fan so you may have no problem.
