The cooling fan not working

There are two things that may be the cause your cooling fans are not running. The first thing is the temperature control sensor, this sensor helps regulate engine temp in conjuction with your thermostat. The second thing is the fan relay switch. This controls both fans! The temperature contol sensor is attached on the driver side on the head, it is right above the bottom rad hose. The fan relay is probably attached to the body, they usually hide these under the plastic skirting in the wheel well!!!

Engine cooling fan not coming on ,fan motor is good

Check the fan relay, it is the only relay inside the power distribution box, under hood on the lefthand fender just behind the air cleaner box. This relay sometimes has bad or dirty connections. Also check the temperature sending unit that activates this relay, it is located in the heater hose directly under the ignition coil, the hose runs between the thermostat housing and the firewall, there are two sensors here the single wire sensor is for the dash guage. Hope this helps, let me know.

Radiator fan not turning on time

Check the rad fan fuse or the relay under the hood.
Is the temp going too high? Check and make sure you are not low on rad fluid (engine cool). An air pocket where the fan temp sensor on the rad is located will not activate the sensor.

Failing that, check the rad temp sensor which activates the fan. If this sensor does not close at high temp...the fan won't work.
