Your coolant temp sensor on the engine block is probably faulty, however, keep in mind that if it really isn't all that hot outside they may not need to turn on. Once you activate the A/C the fans come on automatically since they have to cool the condensor...

If your car is not overheating do not worry about it.

your fan comes on when your car reaches required temp but if you turn the ac on it will turn the fan on also but if your fan don't work at normal temp check cooling fan relay or fan motor

2001 Chevy Malibu is getting hot before the fans come on.Had blown head gasket.Replaced that and the fan motor.Of course when the a/c is on the fans come on.Turn it off,they stay on but otherwise the car...


on my 2000 malibu 3.1, the fans come on at about 220 and go off at 210. tempurature should read about a line past the half mark. if hotter then this, check coolant level to be sure its ok. and there are no leaks in system. good-day! you might want to check the coolant temperature sensor. Also, there is a relay for the fan in the fuse box. engine is not considered over heating unless it gets to the red line portion of guage about 250 degrees. the fans work for a/c so it must be the coolant sensor thats not turning fans on when it gets hot.

Cooling Fans coming on shortly after starting cold vehicle Ford Winstar 2001


climate control units in most cars use the ac system to regulate temp in the cab. the ac system requires a fan to pull air over the condensor on the front of the car. its normal for a fan to come on. unless you have a bad engine temp sending unit thats causing the engine cooling fan to come on improperly. try turning off the heat and ac and see if it still comes on.

Cooling fans on 2001 chevy malibu will not come on unless ac on


the relays control circuit is grounded by ECM (computer) . to check this make sure the is hot enough for the fans to be commanded on by computer and check to see if you have voltage at relay and it has ground from computer . you may need ECM.
good luck
