Disconnect the fan motor and apply 12v to it. If it comes on the motor is good. If it does not, replace the fan motor. If it comes on, then your temperature sending unit is bad and not telling the fan to come on, replace the sensor.

Eee 1015PE is overheating and shutting down

Is the fan working? You will need to replace your fan if it's not functioning. And don't use it in that condition, you risk damaging it everytime it overheats

1994mitsubishispacewagon still overheats after replacing auxilliary fan sensor, cleaned the hoses, pls help

Thermostat stuck take it out. leave it out .. try it ...then
put in a new one...or water pump weak. Also try wiring the auxiliary fan and any other fans so that anytime the vehicles motor is ON the fans are ON don't depend on a sensor on a Mitsubishi of that that don't come on soon enough, or stay on long enough, or turn on at all without letting you know until the motor overheats..... , are the leading cause of death for vehicles~!! lol

Motor overheats if sitting still, a/c works while driving, but when I stop, it starts blowing hot air. Not sure if fan is coming on

open the hood, start the car and wait til it comes to normal temp. wait and see if the fan/s kick in. If they don't then there is a problem with the fan circuit or you have a bad fan. Turn on the a/c and see if the fan instantly turns on. if the fan does't turn on, then the fan may be faulty.

My bike is overheats when it is running still>

This is a thermal switch, located on the radiator, the wires from the fan will be looped into this, normaly located to one side in one of the ends, if you have a switch on the radiator it will have 2wires bridge these together with the ignition on taking care not to earth any of the wires out, and the fan should come on, i presume your temp gauge is working correctly, and you have coolant in the system, check when cold the level of coolant not in the bottle but in the radiator, also check the fan turns manualy by hand and if you have a fuse covering the fan that it is in good condition

I just bought a 2009 ktm 450exc new from dealer ran bike 8th of throttle bike has no power runs poor. sent bike back twicethen they gave me a new bike perfect runs great now. it overheats at lights i see...

Take the bike back to the dealer. The problem with KTM bikes is that they are so highly engineered that most riders, ( and most dealers ), have a problem getting them tuned properly. Since the bike is new, the carb should not be the problem. Don't mess with it. Have the dealer check the radiator for proper coolent level and coolent flow. If the bike has a fan, check the sensor and fan operation.

Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer?
