Sounds like your fan relay needs to be changed. It is freezing in the on position when you turn your car off. Change the relay. Hope this helps, James Booth. PLEASE RATE THIS!!! :)

91 honda accord won't start sometimes-battery, a/c, starter?

Your tempermental starting problem could be the park neutral safety switch . They get worn inside an cause this type problem . Next time it won't start place gear selector into neutral an see if it starts then . The cooling running problem is probably the cooling fan timer module . From the diagram it's hard to say which side the A/C condenser fan is on. The A/C fan has blue with yellow stripe wire in the connector along with a black one . I would also suggest you have a qualified repair shop do a voltage drop test on the starting circuit .

Radiator cooling fan stays on after car is turned off, new temperature switches fitted,new relay fitted,,, any one had this problem? Cheers,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,GIXXER TIM

It depends, how long is it staying on after you shut the car off and how hot is the temp guage when you turn it off? The fan circuit is separate from the ignition and is designed to run until the engine reads a specific temp irregardless of whether the ignition is on or not. Hope this helps.

My Corrado oveheats sometimes but not all the time

Yes, their coolant is what you need to put in the car. It's either running Blue G11, or Red G12. Local VW dealer can help you there. I'd probably replace the temp switch.

Hi all, my vw corrado g60 is running hot all the time ive change the water pump, new head gasket,and had a new radiator and ive even taken out the thermostat and it still runs hot can any one help please.

Do a steam clean or wipe down on the engine block.

Locate ALL the freeze plugs location.

Monitor for slow coolant drip / steam / water mark on each freeze plugs.

Replace them ASAP.

Do a hydrocarbon HC dye test to rule out crack head and other minor leak(s)


I will add more tips later in my Fixya TIP.

Vw corrado g60, wont start.

i used to have a golf g60 and had a similar problem, with mine it was the coil lead.
but it could be a number of things? i sold mine due to the amount of problems i had with it aswell !
if the fuel is still in the cylinder then it has to be an electrical problem as its not igniting. are you getting a spark from the plugs? leave one out and get some one to turn the engine and see if the plug is sparking. if its not then its either the coil, rotor arm, dizzy cap or leads.

Replace the cooling fan engine temp sensor switch, this may be the cause.
