Depends on model as not all vehicles have this fan turn on straight away but some have sensors which turn it on via pressure switch ,So if it works then leave alone but if your stationary with AC on then watch what happens and see if comes on after a short while if the compressor clicks out and the fan doesnt come on then you have a problem which will need looking at and maybe a new sensor

My a/c clutch is not engaging and there for the cooling fan is is not working what could be the cause


There are two relevant relays. One is the AC relay, turns the compressor on. The other is the AC fan relay that turns the fan on. Find the AC relay in the underhood fuse/relay block. You could pull it out and with key on, check if one terminal for the relay has power as it should. If it does, swap these two relays, then see if compressor comes on. If it still doesn't work, the dash controls will need diagnosing. There may be a fuse for it, so check for that, a blown fuse.
If it was working and just quit, it is probably a job for a shop.

My beetle 2001 radiator fan no working and aircond also come out without cool air, engin overheating problem. i send to workshop and check wiring and fuse all in good condition. please give advise what...


Because there is no supply to the fan , it is not working. So you need to check the fan with a direct link to test , is working check the RELAY box for the fan relay, next check on the thermistor, the control circuit of the temperature controller to trigger the fan relay. Also check on the fuse to the relay unit.
The AC cooling must be checked only after this circuit is working as a hot engine will not give a good result. cehck the gas pressure, check the pumping pressure to confirm the compressor.
Also the eveporator, condenser, pressure switch must be checked independantly.

2000 grand caravan 3.8 Condenser fans not comming on with a/c ...fans do cycle with engine temp compressor is engauging and a/c is trying to work but gets hot fast with no ..... fan working


Check under the hood in the fuse/relay panel. Lift the cover and look inside the cover for the correct location for the fuse/relay controlling the cooling fans. Either the fuse will be blown or the relay is bad. Use a test light to check the fuse for power on both sides,if you have power on the fuse then the relay has gone bad. Hope this will help you.

2001 Nissan Xterra Ac condenser Fan not getting power, AC work fine but no positive at Condenser fan


suspect relay. there will be a relay in fuse for ac fan. usually there are several relays of the same type in the fuse box. look for numbers on the relay to be the same then pull them and switch to see if the relay way bad.if so get a new one. if still nothing make sure no obstruction to fan blade. if no then suspect fan motor. get 12v to fan to see. fans are held in by two bolts on top and they just set in holder so remove the two screws and unplug the power cord and you can lift it right out of the vehicle. then get 12v to the motor contacts and see if it is ok. good luck

When I turn on my a/c the car starts to everheat


When ever the car overheats,it is always the best thing on your car,to check the cooling fans.When the ac is on,look to see if the cooling fans are running,and running fast,and smoothly.In your case,I am going to go out on a limb,and say they are not.First check for blown cooling fan fuse.Then,if the fuses are alright,check the cooling fan relays,most likely more than one.One prong,or spade coming out of the relay,is ground(where it plugs up).To make the relay energize,ground this terminal with a test light .Just like you are using the test light to check for 12 volts.When you touch the ground spade on the relay it will energize the relay to turn the fans on.Just pull the relay out of it`s spot,just enough to touch the spade.Do this with the ac on,and engine running.The clutch relay on most cars will energize the relay,but the ac compressor is working on your car,so it is either the fan relay,or the high side switch on the ac system that is bad.Try and see if the cooling fans,both of them,or one of them,will come on by them selves as the car warms up,with the ac off.The fan or fans should come on,and go off by themselves.Don`t let the engine overheat,keep a good eye out not to let that happen.If the fans never come on,then,the fan,or fans could be bad.You can test them by running wire from battery to the fan,and grounding to frame.Now the fuse,or relay being bad will also cause this.If a fuse is blown,then ,one or more of the fans are bad,and will have to be replaced.The fans cool the radiator for the engine and transmission cooling,and the condenser for the ac system.If the condenser is not cooled down,the ac freon will be to warm to cool the vehicle.If I can help,let me know.>>roniecon@gmail.com

Mercedes benz airconditioning


You might check the cooling fans on the condenser to see if they are running when the ac is on.If they are not check for blown fuse,or bad cooling fan relay.Do you notice if the ac cools better when running constantly,and the ac is not so cool when in traffic,stopping and going,and running slow?If so the cooling fan,or fans are not working.If the fan fuse and the relays check out fine,then replace the fan,or fans.If I can help any more please ask.roniecon@gmail.com

Ac does not blow cold at idle... ac condenser fan


that seems to be the problem. If the fan does not turn on when the a/c is turned on it could be a fuse, relay, control box, or just a bad fan. Try connecting the fan directly to see if it works. Does this car have 2 fans? normally all the small cars have 2 fans one for the engine cooling and one to assist the first when the a/c is turned on. Without the fan pulling air through the a/c condensor the had pressure goes up high enough to shut off the a/c compressor. It also causes some cars to run warmer than usual when stopped. Check the a/c condensor for blockage also which doesn't have anything to do with your fan not working.
