If the fan is working properly then you might want to check the INTAKE MANIFOLD for leaks or make sure the HEAD GASKET isn't blown. If the fan is NOT working properly, replace the fan and the pigtail that connects to it

My car is overheating because the fan is not working. Do I need to replace the fan, change the coolant fuse, or run a wire so that my fan can come on?


Give the fan a direct 12v and ground with jumper wires. If it works prob just a relay if not prob needs a fan.

COOLING FANS NOT RUNNING

It is normal for the A/C air to warm up a little when stopped. Less airflow thru the condensor. It is normal for the engine temperature gage to rise up to about the 80% mark on its scale before the cooling fan kicks on. The gage will also show about the same reading on the first start of the day, until the thermostat opens.

If the fan(s) are not working properly the A/C air and engine temperature will rise. If you have a belt driven clutch fan, the clutch may be worn out. All cooling fans kinda sound like miniature jet engines when its hot out, more so when the A/C is on. Replacing the clutch is all you can do for a belt driven fan. Electric fans are more complicated....
Check all main power electrical connections first.... 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 or three of the terminals should have power, usually criss-cross from each other. Two are hot battery power, and the third 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 two terminal's have power, then I would replace the thermostat sensor if not both sensors.

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

My car keeps running hot. I have changed the radiator, water pump, thermostat and temperture sensor. It seems like the cooling fans are not working. I don't know what else can be the problem. Please help.


if you think it may be the cooling fans. then check the fan relay and fuse in fuse box. if they are ok! then run a wire from positive on battery to positive on fan connection, run another wire from neagative on battery to other connection on fan. if the fans are good,they will turn on. have a good day !! also be sure coolant is at proper level.

My cooling fan will not come on at all. I've changed the temp sensor and if I wire the fan direct, it works. Otherwise, if I'm in traffic on a hot day, it will peg the temp gauge. Could it just be the...


Try changing the coolant temp senor...Its usually by the thermostat by the housing....Start up your car and let it run for a bit.....then unplug the electric plug from the sensor....If you unplug it and the fan comes on....that sensor is your problem. Or it could be your coolant fan relay.

I have a 1999 grand cherokee limited 4.7 v8 litre


There is the coolant sensor that tells the computer the temp,and the computer sends a signal to the cooling fan relays,and the relay turns the cooling fans on,and off,if the system is low on coolant,or has air in the cooling system,then the cooling fans would not come on,or the sensor is bad,if this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

Running hot


most cars have two electric cooling fans ...one cools the engine and the other one turns on with the A/C to handle the additional heat lead.  Check the fuses and relays.
