Cooling fans run at cold start


That may be normal depending upon what you are doing in the vehicle. If you have the climate control system set to defroster, most vehicles run the AC system to avoid fogging. Anytime the AC system is engaged the cooling fans must run. Make sure you don't have the AC or defroster on and try again. If the fans still run it could be a faulty fan switch.

Car never reaches operating temperature (cold weather) thus little to no heat inside


change the thermostat, sounds like it could stuck open and wont allow the engine reach operating temp, also test the constant control relay module located to the right of the battery as your facing the front of the car, also test coolant temp switch it might be defective and producing a high voltage that would cause the fans to constantly operate no matter the temp. Hope this helps

Hello I have a 06 Ford freestar I'm getting a p1289 code also fans run on start up and temp gauge sits at cold


Head temperature sensor. Either the sensor is bad or you blew a head gasket. Since you indicate that the fans run on start up it is most likely the sensor.

Hello I have a 06 Ford freestar I'm getting a


The cooling system may be low on fluid.
The code is for a temp sensor high voltage which could be a wiring problem or something else.
The sensor needs to be in contact with liquid coolant to work. The computer is not getting an acceptable signal from the sensor, so the check engine light is on and the fan runs for safety. The sensor for the computer is different than the one for the temp gauge.

I have a '98 Olds Silhouette cooling fans work when A/C is on but will not come on even when temp is above normal operating temp if A/C is off


Just saw your second posting, so the temp is still above normal. Could the sensor
that controls the fan be not reading the heat properly ? The antifreeze/coolant
issue could still be relevant, so I will re-post that info. Tho.
Electric cooling fans will sometimes come on after a vehicle is parked,
(It actually heats up when stopped), but not when it is rolling down the road
because the movement is applying some cooling effect to the engine.
\
If the engine is not actually overheating, then the fans may be working
normally. Also, make sure your water/antifreeze mix is correct by using a
specific gravity tester. It is a tube with 4 or 5 balls, some of which will float
to give you a reading. Contrary to popular belief, More is not better when it
comes to antifreeze/coolant. It needs water to work properly. Too strong a
mix will actually make your vehicle run cold so that the temp sensors and
heater will not function properly. The engine will not achieve proper operating
temperature and may actually damage some of the components by running
it cold, affect timing, spark, etc. This could also cause the symptoms you
describe. The engine would not actually reach the proper heat threshold
until you added the extra demand of the AC heat transfer. But the first criteria
would be whether the engine is actually overheating / or in normal range .
It may be that the colder weather is allowing the sensors to come on a little
later, warming the engine and heater components a bit more than they would
in warmer weather. Would be good to know what the actual coolant temp is.
Could check that with a guage, and also check to see what temp thermostat
you are using. 195 degrees in the winter would be better, 165/180 or so in the
warmer months

Hey, I'm working on a 2004 Ford Freestar van with a coolant problem. There is no consistency, it happens at low and high speeds. While driving the temp gauge goes from its normal running position,...


do you have access to a good scanner (that reads engine parameters like engine temp?)-your gauge could be bad, you might have an intermittent problem with the cooling fan (connector?), your thermostat could be hanging open or closed, or you might have air in the cooling system.

2005 freestar fans not cutting on causing engine to run hot, what could be the cause. Once I get moving on the interstate it cools off, but in town I am constantly looking at the temperture needle. Thanks


YOU COULD CHECK THE FUSES FOR THE COOLING FAN RELAYS. THERE ARE 2. RELAY 1 AND RELAY 2. THEY ARE IN THE FRONT PART OF THE FUSE BOX IN THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT. THE FUSE FOR RELAY 1 IS LABELED F3 AND IS A 30 AMP FUSE. AND RELAY 2 IS LABELED F2 AND IS A 30 AMP FUSE.
