I found this forum site and from what I can discern, both fans should be running once engine temperature sensor turns them on. Can you switch wiring from 1 fan to the other? This would let you know whether you have a faulty motor or relay. Maybe you can pick up some tips too.

1995 chevy lumina what turns a radiator fans on


All electric..thermostatic switches. When the coolant gets too hot a switch is tripped that fires up the fans. There is a mechanical valve too, it directs hot coolant away from engine.

Where is bottom part of should seat on lumina


the shroud should be screwed into the back side of the radiator (side closest to the engine) you will want to test fit it with the screw holes lined up and have someone spin the fan to see if the shroud is out of the way. It's normal not to have it screwed in at the bottom.

My 2002 Hyundai Elantra gets hot when sitting in traffic. So far I have checked all the fuses and they are good, the coolant level is normal, and both fans are plugged in. Even when the car is getting...


Both fans don't necessarily have to start and stop together but you do need both of them to adequately cool the engine. If you plugged the harness from the drivers side fan into the passenger side fan and it worked then I think you've ruled out any electrical problems with the wiring. It's probably 1 of 2 things. Either the fan has gone out, or the temperature sensor has gone bad. I would start with the temperature sensor first. They are inexpensive and easy to replace. The sensor just threads into the radiator, usually at the bottom.

Good Luck!

1995 volkswagon golf over heating. Replaced upper and lower radiator hose. Engine cooling fan doesnt kick on. What else should I look for.


I would check the radiator fan switch, it's mounted in the radiator on the driver side of the radiator, you should be able to see it from the engine compartment. Also check the fan relay and fan fuse.

the electric cooling fan for the radiator will not turn on when the engine reaches normal operating temp, its only supposed to come on if the engine temp goes over the normal temp. (around 220 degrees)
it is normal for the fan to come on any time the a/c or defroster is turned on.

Drain the system. Remove the upper radiator cover and the dual cooling fans (4 bolts and an electrical connector). Disconnect the transmission cooler lines and the upper and lower hoses.. The radiator should freely pull straight up and out. Reverse the process to install the new radiator.

Turn signals and electric fan


ruge, i dont think so. Check ground wires on battery and on radiator core support and on engine block. Mono, try replacing the flasher unit. If that doesnt help you, the switch is probably bad
