Those fan motors are very prone to wear the carbon brushes very early. They last 4-5 years tops.
After checking the fuse and relay of the motor fan. The culprit should be the motor brushes.
Replace both fan motors.

With engine running a/c compressor engages with the a/c unit off.next day when i turn a/c on the compressor does not engage.if i ground the relay it works, but when i turn the a/c off in the car the...


HI,
The airconditioner turns on the auxillary fan when the compressor is on via a relay. I would change the relay. If hard wired the fan to the compressor I would think the fuse has blown since there is too much of a load on one circuit. Check to A/C fuse. If the fuse is no good replace it.If it is not the fuse, check the fuse under the HOOD..

Please post back for how things turned or for further assistance..Thank you!..Regards!!..

Compressor and fans do not turn on until rev engine


I passed this question the first time I read it, so I will take a stab at it now.
The fans don't come on until the compressor has pumped the freon pressure up to say 150 or 200 psi. And the compressor clutch has to have voltage to engage the clutch.
I wonder if the clutch is going and needs 14 volts instead of 12 to engage ? Or the relay that powers the clutch ?
Speeding up the engine would increase voltage from the alternator.
This is assuming the serpentine belt is tight and everything else is working correctly.
I think I would swap the relay with another and put a meter on that circuit to the ac clutch to see what it takes to engage it.

2003 Hyundai Sante fe A/C fan and rad fan not turning Fast enough while A/C is on but work OK when engine come to temp. ac starts off cold then gets warm after about 5 miles.


make sure radiator and or condensor fins are not restricted with dirt , bugs etc. poor airflow across the condensor. high side pressure could rise too high causing compressor to cycle off and on and not cool the freon properly.not sure what you mean when you say you play with the relay and it comes on. compressor or the fan? pull the relay and look at the female pins and make sure they are not spread open too wide. is the check engine lamp on? sometimes computers will disable ac for some other faults. im not sure if you mean the compressor is turning off and staying off, or just not cooling well due to fan problem. if its turning off it could be a control head problem or the pcm disabling it for another reason. or if you are manipulating the relay then compressor kicks on you may have a bad relay. hope this helps

Condenser fan does not turn on w ac compressor , blown fuse ? bad relay ??please help !


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

Jump air compressor ac works replace relays same issue HONDA


the compressor may be low on freopn but, the fan problem is most likely the fan motor as it is the low temp fan and will run more often than both fans...to test see if you can switch the fan plugin to the other fan watch carefully that it does not get too hot as the second fan is a safety fan that works as high temp or when using the A\C

2003 mitsubishi galant es ac/fan problem


sounds like the fan controller switch in the panel has gone nutty. I would take the car to the dealer and let them diagnose the issue, they are best when it comes to knowing your car the most and in diagnosing problems with them better than just a regular joe blow shop that works on everything and doesn't specialize in any particular issue.

AIR DOES NOT WORK DO I JUST NEED FREEON


If the air conditioner blow warm air,

1. Open the hood and check the fan belt first, sometime the fan belt broke caused the compressor stop to work, if the fan belt is good, check the compressor see if the center part turns, if turns, that means the compressor is o.k.

2. If both work fine, check the air conditioner small window see if there is bubble, if you see some bubbles in the small round window, that’s means your air conditioner lack
R-22 Freon.

3. before you fill up the Freon, check the leaking, if leaks, fix it and then fill up the Freon, the best way is to ask some professional auto air conditioner repair shop to help you.


Hope this can help you.
