SOURCE: radiator fans dont run????

I believe that the problem you are encoutering is a bad SSR (solid state relay). This device is wired in series with the fans and causes them to run at various speeds depending on engine needs. It is quite common that these devices fail. I would look at trying to get a new one...not sure of the cost but very easy to replace yourself.

SOURCE: my car keeps overheating..the radiator

When the radiator fans stop working. It is usually the temperature control sensor, the wiring to it or the fans. It could also be a relay or fuse. but thats low on the list. The TCS is located by the thermostat on the intake. It has to actually touch the coolant,it has a small plug and is threaded into the is made out of brass.
Never drive your car hot it could lead to more trouble. The sensors, the hoses, head gaskets , many thing could happen.

SOURCE: 1991 camaro rs overheating

Flushing the cooling system has its drawbacks. I you needed one freeze plug, you can reasonably suspect the others are surely right close to failure.In this case, starting to fail one at a rime weakest first. Now, as far as the other issues are concerned. What is the question? Sounds like the tazmanian devil had too much time on hand. I don't know the qualifications or integrity of your mechanic, but I do know a reputable, as well asa professional mechanic is not likely to intentionally or even bother to, contribute to these describe issues. Ocassional blue smoke is an internal problem, The AC is an issue in itself, The caalyctic converter is an issue that is too messy, smrlly thing to deal with. Any evisence of how and of what it was gutted? What was repaired or listed as repaired on your invoice? And what state are you in? It appears you may be seeking legal advice and in this forum it would not be an appropriate place to seek it. You may want to refer this to an Attorney for assistance.. Good luck and I hope you reach some resolve on this matter.

SOURCE: how do i change the radiator cooling fan fuse in a

Well if you found it, you should be able to replace it, some of these big fuses "bolt in" down on the sides. If it blew, you better find out why (usually the motor is bad) before you replace it.

Coolling fans dont work

Check for a blown fuse----look at it & test it
Check for & TEST any fan relays-have to remove them to do so
Then unplug the cooling fan & put battery voltage to it

If the fuse is good,the relay works,the fan works,you may need
a wiring diagram & do some internet searching to find a temp sensor or switch--odds are it will be in the radiator or cooling system somewhere.

Check for wire connectors being off

Have to check the radiator for leaks & the coolant system
for leaks & at least partially remove the radiator, to get rid of
leaves & other road dibris,bird feathers & such

Mercedes fan

If it gets hot at a seady 55-60 mph.It's not a fan problem.They are only for low speed.If it gets hot running down the road ,more likely a head gasket.One is the engine fan ,the other for the A.C. Don't know where the relay is for the engine fan,anybody else?

My saturn ion 2 2003 fan for radiator does not come on. I took it to a machanic he told me i needed to pay $110 dollar first to get a diagnostic check to see where the problem is. I ask him could it just...

My friend if you know anything on mechanics just go into the engine compartment and find the fan on your radiator and follow the wiring and somewhere leads to a connector just unplug it and spray in a contact cleaner and reconnect it.Also find the fan switch either it is fitted on the lower side of the radiator or on the cylinder head near by the thermostat.If you find it Just bridge the connect to see whether the fan starts. If so change the fan switch . or go to the Fuse box and find the fuse which is for the fan and if it is blown change it and follow the engine whilst running to check the temperature and the fan. Hope I help a bit.

How do I remove condenser fan from a 2004 jeep grand cherokee limited

If you are talking about the cooling fan between the radiator and the engine [with the 4.0L engine] then this fan comes out through the top along with/attached to the radiator. If it is a 4.7L hydraulic fan then it can be removed without pulling the radiator. If you have an auxiliary fan ahead of the radiator then you may have to pull the grill and related parts surrounding it to get it out. None are real easy to get out and require a fair amount of patience to remove. If you have an electric fan check to be sure that you don't have a blown fuse that is preventing it from working. Usually it's a fairly large fuse of 30 or more amps. These fans can become frozen in place in winter and will cause the fuse to blow when they try to turn but the problem may not be noticed until the weather warms up and they are needed for a/c operation.

The fan on my Toyota Corolla is not running. I just changed the radiator and refilled the coolant. Shouldn't it run immediately I switch on? How can I tell if the fuse has blown?

What has the radiator got to do with the fan coming on? There may be a bad fan switch,screwed into the radiator,but you wouldn't change the radiator,only the sw ,if bad. You could jump the fan sw wires,turn key on, to test for a bad sw and a working fan

Why does my radiator fan not work

Check the 60 amp fuse in the under hood fuse block for the rad fan, if it blew the rad fan is probably seizing up and will need replacing, the other posibility is that the coolant temp sensor is not working properly and the computer does not know how hot the coolant is! and may need replacing.

Down by the bottom of the radiator. pass side. on the frame/rad support. You probly have to remove front splash shield to get to it. I have never had to remove or change one.

Blowing fuses,abs light comes on-running lights go out.Ran fan doesn't work,something with this blows the 25 amp fuse.Usually as soon as I turn the key to the on position. Any Ideas thanks

Blown fuse means there is an increase of current due to an increase of load or a short. You may want to check the wiring harness that has the wires of those not running that you have mentioned for open circuit, corroded insulation, loose cable, ect that needs replacement and mending.
