Bobblevinsbu, You need to check the fuses first, especially the maxi fuses in the engine compartment. If these are good then try switching the fan relay with the horn relay. They are usually the same number so it is okay to do this. When you do this try the horn and if it works then the relay is fine. You should switch them back again and try the horn once again. If the relay and fuses are okay them disconnect the fans and apply direct power to them from the battery using jumper wires. If the fans operate while using this method then they are fine. If not then the fans need to be replaced. Finally the PCM gets a signal fron the engine coolant temperature (ECT)sensor located near the upper radiator hose where it connects to the engine. When this signal is recieved by the computer it will command the fans to turn on. If this is faulty then it needs to be replaced. First try to jiggle the wires going to the sensor when the engine is hot and you think the fans should be on. If you have a tester that will test resistance then probe the sensor pins and check what the readings are when the engine is hot and cold. There should be a significant difference. If not then the sensor needs to be replaced. Also try turning the AC on (engine running) and check the fans, they should be working when you do this. Good luck with this.

Fans wont shut off when ignition is off 99 prelude


Some cars are designed to allow the fans to run even with the key off until the engine and radiator cool down. If it continues to run after 19-15 minutes you may have a sticking fan relay, usually located in the fuse box in the engine compartment, just replace it and it should take care of your problem

Dodge Caravan is notorious for failure of the electronic cooling fan control module (AKA cooling fan relay). This is not a "relay", it is a solid-state control unit, but many people call it a relay anyway.
It is mounted on the inside of the left frame rail just behind the radiator. You have to look up from UNDER the vehicle to see it. It looks like the picture below. The picture shown is very close to actual size.

1998 ford mustang radiator cooing fan wont come on


Check the fluid level in the radiator - after it cools down !

It sounds like you should replace the temperature sensor that controls the fan. This is usually located in the radiator and has electrical wires connected to it. Trace the wires from the radiator fan ( not the air conditioner fan!) to the sensor.

If the radiator is aluminum you may need special anti-freeze to prevent damage.
