    The fan wont come on when I turn on the defrost. It was 11 degrees outside and the car had set out overnight. Could it have just froze up? We had 3 inches of snow overnight. Or does it need replaced?

Turning on the heat removes heat from the engine as it blows it on you. Make sure first that there are no air pockets in your cooling system as that can cause high temp reading and malfunctions in proper fan engagement. If that looks good test your fan, if it is working then test the fan relay, if it is working test the temperature sensor that gives the relay the go ahead to engage the fan.

Lost heat fan still blows cold only and car overheating


Sounds like a possible water pump problem with the over heating part. About the heater only blowing cold you may have to get it "recharged"

Over heating


If your vehical is over heating at idea it is most likely the radiator fan
this can be checked by running the car until it heats up and looking at the fan to see if it is running.
This usually isn't an issue as long as you are driving, but when you stop or driving slow or in traffic it will start heating up quickly. your fan keeps air flow going through the engine while at a stop to help cool down the engine compartment and pull.push air through the radiator

If you still over heat no matter if your driving or stopped it may be a thermostatic radiator valve that went bad. this is a release valve between the radiator and the engine that helps control the coolent flow between the engine and radiator and control how much heat is taken out of the engine to be cooled in the radiator.

So, run the car and see if the radiator fan kicks on. if it does, it's probably not a bad fan. if your car starts over heating and the fan never comes on it's most likely some problem with the fan

if it is turning and you are still having problems overheating go buy a new valve and change it out. cost you at most 5 bucks for a new one (probably less)

I have a 2003 civic when it is hideling it dont give heat but when the gas peddle is pressed it gives heat and the car over heats but when i turn the air conditoner on the hand goes back to cool a soon has...


Sounds like the cooling fan on the radiator has a bad clutch. You may also have a bad thermostat. Replace the thermostat and have the fan clutch tested. It should spin freely with the vehicle off. If the fan is not kicking in when you are sitting still with the engine running you could have a bad fan or fan relay. This will also cause the vehicle to over heat.

Soon as i turn on my heat my cooling fans come on first


It sounds like you do need a thermostat with your heat shut off and the gauge will raise a little then the car doesn't have that heat drawn from it indicating that you most likely do need a thermostat. As far as the fans coming on immediatly that could be a different problem it is most likely the coolant temperature sensor that tells the fan's when to come on. If this sensor says the coolant is hot the fans will come on immediatly. These are seperate problems as the coolant temperature sensor does not have anything to do with the cabin heating system. You should first check the level of your coolant is full, This could also cause your cabin heating system to perform poorly, and may have adverse effects to the engine cooling system. (fans)
