Question about 1994 Mazda MX-3

Radiator fans and horns not working anymore

Hello there,

I'm having two problems with my beloved MX-3 1994.
1. The radiator fans are not working anymore. I know that they are in working condition because I have tested them bu connectign them directly to the battery.
2. The horn is not working either. It was working couple of weeks ago. I'd like to have it working again.
It seems that both problems are related, however I'm 100% sure.
Could you please give me some advise on how to fix these problems.

Very much appreciated

    Thank you very much Benimur! I really appreciate your time.

    I forgot to mention that part. Yes, I did check all the fuses and all of them are in working condition. I tested each one of them.

    The fuse box inside the car does not have a fuse for neither the horn nor the radiator fans.

    I also checked the fuse box that is next to the battery, same thing. All of them are fine.

    Any other suggestion?

    Thanks again

    KW Ranger

Have you tried checking the fuses for the horn and fan? Normally, the main fuses would be in the fuse box/bank in the engine bay (under the hood) often near the battery. Additional fuse box may be found inside the car sometimes in the driver's side kick panel (footwell), under the dash or under the glove box.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Overheating : how can we find a 4 row radiator?

I have no idea what type of car you have but most modern cars don't use 4 core radiators anymore. I would look for another source to your overheating problem. ie. thermostat, water pump, leaks, blown head gasket, cracked head or block, clogged radiator, faulty cooling fan.................

My radiator fan is not working

Hello Bob horse,

The problem could be the radiator fan relay, or your "temperature sensor". Try switching the radiator fan relay with another identical relay out of the fuse block. If fan runs when engine temp gets to the right point, you found the problem. If not, it's more than likely your temp. sensor.

I have a 1997 Chrysler town and country I have 2 problems 1) cooling fan doesn't work and after troubleshooting , where exactly is the cooling fan relay? I have owners manual and Haynes manual and both say...

#1 Cooling fan relay may be mounted on the radiator fan itself or on the left side frame rail small circuit board looking with 2 screws holding it to frame near the radiator.
#2 your horn and cruise passes through the airbag clock spring, most likely the connection in the clockspring is open,replace it and you should be good

P1491 diagnostics code for 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Trouble Code: P1491 You PCM does not sense current to radiator fan when it turns it on. Is the fan coming on or not? Usually not when you have this code. Problem can be with the fuse, relay, wiring or fan itself. First check the fuse. If good, next try swapping the relay with another one in the engine compartment relay box, such as the horn relay.
Let the car warm up and see if the fan will come on. If yes, get a new relay. If not, either use a test light to see if there is voltage at the fan connector when the engine is on and hot, or else test the fan motor by hotwiring it to the battery. If none of this works, please get back to me for how to troubleshoot the wiring.

It does have a fan switch, it looks like a bolt head with 2 wires on it. It will be on the radiator near the bottom. Connect the 2 wires together to test the switch.

Car overheating

when the car is cold, fill the radiator, start the car. Leave it running with the radiator cap off until the thermostat opens. If it opens the fluid in the radiator will be circulated by the water pump and the electric fan will turn on and cool the radiator. If not, the engine will overheat because either the thermostat is not opening or if the fan doesn't come on, the fan sensor is probably at fault, or both. If there is a noise and fluid leak, the problem could be the water pump. If there is no fluid leak, the problem is likely the thermostat or the fan sensor.
