Check your owners manual, it should show a location of fuses and relays, it is in with fuses.

The engine Temp gauge got real close to "H"but went down soon as i got rolling.Also engine cooling fans not coming on. even when i engaged AC. the fans are electric. . .?

The reason that you drive and engine cools down is that cool wind is blowing in the grille in front of the car and when you stop, that natural wind stops cooling it down.
First check the fan fuse. If it is OK check the fan itself: just apply wires on the connector of the fan and attache it to the battery (dont mix "+" and "-") If fan will not start, replace the fan motor. If it starts check for the Fan Motor Relay

I have an 06 mazda 3. About a week ago while at a red light. I noticed my AC stopped blowing cold. Then when I accelerate it blows cold. Also my engine started overheating. Ive concluded that the issue was...

if your engine is overheating could be the problem of the ac not working , check the temperature sending unit located by thermostat housing , if it is bad will not let the radiator fan come on when ac is on and will cause your high side pressure ac line to get to hot causing the high side switch to disable the fan , also check the blower motor resistor it controls speed of blower motor

I noticed yesterday that when I turned my car off the fan under the hood kepts going for about 2 minutes and then turned off. On the way home yesterday my sensor went off saying "turn AC off to...

The fan staying on for a few minutes wass just the fan and sensor trying to bring the temp down at the radiator.

As for the AC shutoff warning, you may not have enough coolant to keep the engine cool. With the engine off and cold, check the radiator and the overflow jug, ensuring they both have the proper amount of coolant. If either is low, fill to specs and drive the vehicle to see if it stays cool. If filling them doesn't fix the problem, you may have a stuck thermostat.

When the engine was running hot, did you notice if the fan was running or not? If it was not, then you may have a fan sensor going out. If it was, you may have a low coolant or thermostat problem

Ac fan speed

Replace the blower motor resister,this is the speeds for the blower motor,it is located very near the blower motor,and is mounted on the blower box,and it actually goes inside the box,to keep it cool.The reason for it`s failure is the blower motor,even though the blower motor sounds,and runs good,it is drawing too many amps.If this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

It keeps burning out blower resistors because of the blower motor drawing to much amperage so you will need to replace the resistor and blower motor
