If your electric fan(s) is not coming on when the engine is hot, first check the fuse, usually in the fusebox under the hood. Then, with the engine hot and running, pull out the fan relay (usually in the same box as the fuse). If it's working, it should click when removed and again when replaced in its socket. If it doesn't, suspect the relay or sensor has failed. See my note here on how to troubleshoot the relay socket: If your gage runs off the same sensor and works, it's probably fine. If you're good with electronics, you can also test the sensor. If these are all good, either the wire to the fan is bad or the fan itself is bad. You can test the wire for voltage with a test light hooked to the fan connector.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

My car keeps over heating ive changed the thermostat water pump fan sensors and hoses what else can I do?

Depending on the vehicle, it could be a fan clutch. Check your fans for proper turn on/shut off.
Next, check your head gasket. check oil for moisture, and see if there is oil in the coolant or coolant in the oil.

Over heating on highway

You need the radiator core cleaned or replaced. The tubes in the core or fins are blocking up. I will take a guess that every time you travel above 50mph or 80kph the temperature starts to rise.

05 Jeep Liberty.. change the electric fan because it wasn't coming on. Fixed the problem for about 7 months. Now it over heats mostly while sitting in traffic.. Get out. move the wire harness con

could be relay but I'm thinking your lines are exposed somewhere between relay and fan and they are shoting out. Thats why it works when you move them. Youi could always electrical tape them (full length) and see if that works. Hope this helps

Clutch fan not working over heats at stops

You should have an electric cooling fan bolted to the radiator. If the fan is not working, someone should check the relay and fan motor for voltage and ground. The fan should come on when the ac is running and when the engine reaches 220 degrees.

Make sure your radiator fan is working or cutting on.It could be a faulty fan relay or fuse and it could also be a faulty coolant temperature sensor.

Check the fan operation to the radiator. If the secondary fan doesn't come on it can't dissipate the heat generated from the condensor. There are relays that control the fan under the hood in the electrical center. Check power and ground to both fans when vehicle running A/C on, both fans should be running. Check for blockage in front of rad / condensor.

Electric radiator fan won't come on when engine gets hot

I had the same problem. Check the fans relay behind the front grill, in front of the radiator, more accesible if you take the headlight (driver's side) out.
