Re: cooling fan motor
The best and easist way is to go and buy connectors from a auto parts store that match the old connection then just strip the wires and crimp the new connector on and you should be good to go. make sure there was no short that caused the other plug to melt. please rate this........thanks

Depending on the year , make , and model you have, most HVAC systems have a blower motor fan resister, usually located near the blower motor, check for power and ground at the fan resistor plug connector and make sure all connectors are in good shape, and not melted, or you will have to replace the fan resister pig tail as well.
you can check the cooling fan by disconnecting the plug at the motor and run jumper wires from the battery directly to the fan motor it should run if its working if it doesn`t run then the cooling fan motor needs replacing. if it does run then check the plug for a bad connection. other things can cause this like the cooling fan relay, the coolant sensor that sends a signal for the computer to turn on the cooling fan by sending a signal to the relay.
the cooling fan itself maybe your problem, high resistance due to the motor being internally shorted but not totally gone, sounds like it my let you down shortly, I'd replace the cooling fan motor and burnt connector.
Hi Derek, I'm glad to help!
I'm not positive what your asking because it only says "Cooling Fan Assembly" But, if they are not working it's either the motor is bad or a relay that drives the motors is bad. Also on some FORD products I have found the wiring going to the motor melted away and has no insulation on them and they touch together and blow the fuse if applicable. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Derek.
I just replaced a set of cooling fan motors for this problem, and the connectors on the motors were even melted, had to replace connector pigtails as well, th fans also cools the a/c condenser so if the fans quit then your a/c will not be very cool unless your driving and the air flow will aid like a fan would..
The most common cause for the cooling fan fuse to blow is a bad cooling fan motor. The failng motor will draw an excessive amount of current which actually heats up the fuse and melts it. Now if your fuse is blowing the instant the cooling fan(s) turn on, then that could be a "dead short". either inside the cooling fan motor or in the wiring going to it. Follow and inspect the wiring leading to the cooling fan motor. Check for any broken, cracked or burnt wires. If you don't see any of that, then you'll probably need a new motor. If you think you can tackle the job, most auto parts stores sell generic replacement cooling fan motors much less than you would pay at the dealership.
WARNING! - some cooling fan motors are easy to get to, and others are very difficult. Study yours carefully and then decide if you want to tackle the job before you start tearing it apart.
YES IF THAT FAN DOES NOT WORK IT WILL CAUSE ALL KINDS OF PROBLEMS. YOUR CAR WILL OVERHEAT, THE A/C WILL BURN UP BECAUSE IT IS NOT COOLING PROPERLY. LOOK AT THE CONECTOR ON THE FAN MOTOR TO SEE IF IT IS MELTED, WE SEE THAT ALL THE TIME. THE WAY YOU CAN CHECK THE MOTOR IS WITH A TEST LIGHT. WITH THE CAR RUNNING CHECK TO SEE IF YOU HAVE POWER AT THE MOTOR. YOU WILL PROBABLY HAVE TO CHANGE IT OUT. I DIDN'T ON MY 2000 626 AND IT COST ME 800.00 TO REPAIR THE A/C AND THE FAN
The fan may run with jumper wires but if it''s blowing the 30 Amp Maxifuse it's needs a new or used fan motor.It's pulling too many amps.I have almost never seen a fan relay concern.Only other thing you may check is the wiring down near the fan shoud I have seen the 2 wires get loose from the conduit & melt onto exhaust manifold.Hope tHis Helps
