Hello and welcome to FixYa!
Have you tested the cooling fan itself? If not then I suggest that you pull out the fan, tap a wire one on the negative battery and other to the positive battery terminal. Tap it to the connector of the fan motor, if it doesn't run then you will need to replace the cooling fan itself. Faulty cooling fan motor can be the issue here and will surely need replacement.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

    I would like to thank everyone for the help. I found out that it was the water outlet /thermostat housing had a small crack in it. I had had the fan fixed and a new thermostat but in a week earlier. Either the shop that did the work either tightened the screw to tight or it was there and they didn't tell me about it. Thanks again for all help.

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.

198 mercury sable cooling fans motor


Cooling fans ( on radiator ) only come on when the engine reaches a certain (hot) temprature. There is a temp sensor threaded into the radiator end reservoir that switches a relay off and on that runs the fans. Either the temp sensor or the relay is probably bad. Normally , those fans will not be on if the car is moving , the air flow from just driving is sufficient to cool the rad. If you stopped and idled for a while , eventually the rad would heat up enough for the fans to come on.

Cooling fans will not come on


Hi,

Fan Relay switch is stuck open. This of course assumes your temperature sensor is working appropriately. Which I assumed since you seem to know that the engine is running hot.

Replace the fan relay switch. The relay switch is tripped when the temperature sensor tells the computer the engine is too hot.

Until you get the relay switch replaced, you can either by-pass the relay switch and directly connect the fans to the battery, or turn on your A/C ALL the time and use it at a minimum setting. This will keep the cooling fans running at all times.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Grand Am 4 cyl. Car - Fan does not turn on


there is no computer to turn the fan on. it works on a thermal switch. so you have a relay to the fan. when the temp sensor gets hot it connects the circuit to the relay and then the fan is on. vary simple. and it works when the car is still hot but the key has been turned off till the switch cools off or some have a timer so it does not run for ever. so good guess is the temp sensor for the fan could be bad if the fan is working.
