There's a little screw in temp sensor (water) on the block right next to the therimstat. Get the factory part as this is a very sensitive 2 speed fan.

How to trouble shoot heat/ a/c fan switch.


Will your blower fan kick on in the medium position by chance? Med/ med high..if it is a 4 position switch, does it operate in the number 3 position? If so it is probably your blower motor resistor. If not, I would test the blower motor itself. Since the compressor kicks on when you turn the fan on, I would think the switch is working.

Fans not running


You may have a 2nd problem. Those fans should run when the car gets warmer than usual. The TDI you have is VERY good about being efficient, and produces little waste heat. Those fans don't come on anywhere near as much as a gas burner BUT they need to come on when you're really working the engine or it's a very hot day. Fan motor failure was common on these cars. With engine running turn on the A/C- this activates both fans to kick on. Do both fans kick on ? If yes- could be temp sensor, also a commonly replaced part- if no check fans. With battery disconnected (for safety) spin the fans by hand. Are they stuck or do they sound awful ? Fan motors may be shot. If fans spin free may be fan relay- check for power at fan connectors with engine running and A/C on

Blower fan not working.


Possible speed control is open circuit or the fan motor. Check you have supply to the switch/motor.

I have a 1997 acura cl 3.0 everytime i turn off my car the cooling fan stays on for quite awhile


The cooling fan is controlled by a heat sensor and operates independently of the motor. When you turn off your Acura, the cooling fan continues to run until the sensor determines the tempurature has decreased enough to turn off the fan

My 2003 dodge durango keeps overheating , i just had new radiator put in and it started overheating again but now it is overheating with a very loud screeching noise like a belt sound what could be ca


as for noise will have to inspect under hood,could be fan or belt or pulley ,water pump .these are some things it could...My suggestion for overheating is replace thermostat. If your car has electric cooling fan then it may not be working..turn defrost on and if fan kicks on then fan motor is good..Now this does not mean that fan is working properly because fan is controlled by heat sensor switch that kicks fan on when motor reaches heat range......Things i would have checked....hope this information helps and good luck and Please rate my post...

Car was overheating replaced the thermostat now the heat isnt blowing hot and the car is over heating worse it's a mitsubishi galante


Could be that fan is not kicking on. check and make sure it is connected. could also be a vapor lock. some cars require bleeding water system and if so most bleeding screws are located around thermostat housing. Call local autozone and ask if your car requires bleeding water system....NOW the overheating could be from fan not kicking on and the best way to find out is to turn on defrost and if fan is working it will kick on automaticaly. If it does kick on then this shows that fan is working fine but this does not mean that fan is running properly.The fan is controlled by a heat sensor which kicks the fan on when motor reaches a curtain heat range. If this sensor is not working it will cause car to overheat.... Could be also that waterpump is bad.Not all waterpumps leak when they go bad.Sometimes the impeler on the waterpump which is what moves water through the system simply stops working and this would cuase it to overheat.......hope this info helps and good luck...Please rate my post and if you need more info fill free to contact me...Need to find where leak is coming from also for this is more than likely the problem........

For some reason the a/c and heating blower fan wont kick on


well neither are controlled by any one fuse or ground but they are controlled either directly or indirectly by the EATC module

start first by seeing if you have power to the blower motor

98 v6 mustang is over heating its not the thermostate or fan


Several things ... best guess, in order:
1. (very likely) Radiator fan is not blowing (turn on car and a/conditioner.
When compressor kicks in, the radiator fan must blow). If it ims not blowing,
the radiator fan motor may be burned out ($40).
2. Check / replace "cooling fan" fuse ($1) and / or "cooling fan" relay switch
($7).
3. Radiator clog (possible)
Hope this helps!

Heat


No heat or no air volume? No heat may mean no coolant! check it now! Your 4.2 wont stand for being overheated. No volume, check the fuse, if ok then turn on you fan and check for voltage at the electrical connector at the blower motor (under the glovebox). If you dont have a test light, tap the blower motor . If that kicks it to life you need a blower motor.
