Have you checked your fuses to see if any are blown? On a 2001 Golf, the fuse panel is on the side of the dashboard inside the drivers side door.

Car gets hot pretty quick and will overheat, noticed fans arent coming on when car is hot or if I turn a/c on. Have caught them running recently but didnt catch it again.


it could be the cooling fan relays or possibly the cooling fans. to check the fans disconnect the plug at the fans and run jumper wires to them both power and ground. if they don`t work then the fans are bad. check voltage and grounds at the plugs when they should be running, if they are good then the wiring is good. it could also be the coolant sensor for the fans that send the signal from the sensor to the computer so it knows when to turn on the fans. the fan that runs with the A/C when turned on could be the A/C relay.

My fan isnt working on my 96 honda accord will run hot


check to see if its the rad coolant fan motor that is bad, it could also be the temp sensor for the rad fan that is bad not sending signal to computer to turn on fan. it could be the fan relay or bad electrical connection in the system or even the computer. you don`t say what if anything you have checked.

Fans are not cutting on


your fan comes on when your car reaches required temp but if you turn the ac on it will turn the fan on also but if your fan don't work at normal temp check cooling fan relay or fan motor

Were is the 2004 Jaguar x type electric radiator fans relay at?


I don't know where it is; however, my husband and I have purchased 2 cooling fan assemblies for my 2004 Jaguar x-type 3.0 AWD. Neither of them would turn on. We have since been advised by a Jag mechanic that you must have a part called the link lead in order for the fans to work properly. This is a non-admitted (by Jaguar) default in this car. Check Quality Auto Parts 800-505-5838, ext. 1047 and ask for AMY. Hope this helps Nancy

Why don't my two front fans don't turn on?


Electric Fan(s) not working, Checking the fan(s), relay, fuse and engine temperature sensor's.
Verify that the fans work by unplugging them and run jumper wires to the fan(s) from the battery. If they run, your problem lies elsewhere. If either does not run, it's the motor.
Next thing to check is for power at the fan connectors. You have to be cautious doing this because the engine needs to be running and warm if not almost hot, and the A/C also needs to be on. (Both must be on and running for the duration of this checklist.) The A/C fan is on the passenger side and should come on almost the instant the A/C is turned on. It is also the secondary engine cooling fan and should cycle on and off in relation to engine temperature. Use a test light to probe the two wires on each fan. If you find power the fan motor(s) is/are probably bad. If there is no power to fans, roll up your sleeves!

The temperature switch is usually located above the oil filter. If the dash gage is working, its probably OK. Next is the Fan Control Temperature Sensor, located IN or CLOSE to the thermostat housing. You will find out if it is working later is this checklist. I just wanted you to know where it is. Next is the relays and fuse's. Usually located in the engine compartment on the passenger side power distribution box. You will need to remove anything over the cover to open it. If the fuses are OK, tap on the relays or pull them out and push back in. If the fans are still not running, pull a relay and probe the socket terminals for power. Two of the terminals should have power, usually criss-cross from each other. One hot terminal is battery power, and the other is the "signal" voltage which triggers the relay to send 12V battery power to the fan. This signal voltage comes from the sensor at the thermostat. If only one terminal has power, then I would replace the thermostat sensor if not both.

Hope this is clear as mud! and helps! Please let me know what you find

The electric cooling fan would not shut off so i unpluged the fan then plugged it back in the next morning and now it wont come on until i unplug theheat sending sensor 99 escort 2 liter automatic


Sounds to me like the fan relay stuck on in the first place. Are you sure that the coolant is getting warm enough to turn on the fan? Most cars don't turn on the fan till the coolant gets to 226 F. You might want to change the sensor if this is the case. Sometimes the sensor wont read high temp's. We know the relay and the computer are working now because the fan comes on when you unplug the sensor.
Post back if you need to know more about the system.
Have a nice day!!

Engine cooling fans don't come on


COOLING FANS DONT TURN COULD BE FAULTY FAN RELAY.FAULTY PCM AND FAULTY COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR.CODE SCAN FOR FAULTY PCM CODE AND A FAULTY COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR.SEE IF ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR IS GIVING CORRECT COOLANT TEMPERATURE USING A CODE SCANNER.IF ENGINE IS 190 DEGREES AND THE ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR READING 100 TO 80 DEGREES COOLANT SENSOR IS BAD.HOT WIRE COOLING FAN TO SEE IF FAN MOTOR WORKS.BECAUSE COOLING FAN MOTOR COULD HAVE OPEN CIRCUIT CAUSING ELECTRIC MOTOR NOT TO TURN ON.

I have a 2001 mazda mpv and is overheating bothfan are not woking all relays checked out ok i also replace the cooling sending unit and still not woking someone said to check the thermal fan switch but i...


Turn on your A/C, is at least (1) fan on? NO? You need to replace at least (1) fan, that is the AC fan. YES? Then at least you now you AC fan works.

Make sure you have enough coolant in your car. DON NOT OPEN RADIATOR WHEN HOT. The Coolant Switch will noever cut on if there is no coolant there to trigger it. You can find it where the thermostat housing is.

Next, get a 12V testlight and test the wiring going to the fans. BE CAREFUL NOT TO GET CUT MY A FANIF IT TURNS ON! If you have electricity, but the fan does not cut on you fan needs repacing.

Coolant fans not working ,fuses o,k and changed 2 relay,s


Hi: I use to do a lot of auto mechanics ,not too much anymore, but it sounds like your mercury switch isn't working. there is a switch that works off of the hot water on some vehicles that basically trips the fan on and off. Some people bypass this switch, makes the fan come on and stay on as soon as the key is turned on from the ignition, I wouldn't advise it but if you do the bypass and the fan works then you know where your problem lies. I think they call it a thermatically switch control. Just trace your fan electric wires from the fan to there destination.
Hope this helps. You could have saved some money on relays had you done this first;
