Does it start again as soon as you put the cover back on it? If it does then your fan relay may be stuck. You could turn the power off and check for continuity across the contacts that power the fan. Let me know what you find. Some units use a sequencer to control the fan instead of a relay.

Compressor/Condensor fan need to be turned by hand to get it started. Do I need a new fan motor or could this be a larger issue.

If the fan does indeed run ok without any bearing noise and the blade spins freely when you push it and then runs ok your motor start capacitor is bad on the motor. This is usually a small metal oval shaped can with two wire leads attached to it to help kick the motor armature into spinning when your ac unit first turns on.

The capacitor is about 4 to 6 uf (microfarads) and at is available at a local electrical supply house and is under $10 and if your handy with small tools this could be replaced by yourself if you are willing. BE SURE TO PULL the OUTSIDE POWER DISCONNET before taking any covers off. 240 volts ac for the compressor motor and fan motor plus even the 110 volt control power will kill you before you can blink! The control relay from the thermostat in your home is 24 volts ac. Get a friend with a voltmeter to verify the circuits are truly dead before you attempt repairs. Good luck and use a voltmeter to make sure the power to the ac unit is off! Regards, Dennis

Why does my fan continue to run after car is shut off?

Which fan are you referring to? The pusher fan in front of the radiator is tied to the AC system. If it continues to run for an extended period after you turn off the key, then there is likely a problem with the relay. I think your model year has the 2 speed fan. Does the fan run at high speed or low speed when you turn off the car? Does it do it if the AC is off?

Very loud when fan is running

This is likely caused by a faulty blower motor bearings, or the fan has something in it or it could possibly have broken. Shut down power to unit, remove cover and inspect the fan shaft, blades, and spin it. it should freely spin. If it hangs up you likely have a bad blower motor.

I have a 95 Gran AM GT with 3.1 auto. The motor will run until it gets overheated and boils over, but the fan will not start.I have totally flushed the system,pulled and inspected the water pump, changed...

Fan operates when coolant temp reaches 226 deg.F and shuts off at 219eg.F
fan is controlled by the PCM infuts from Eng. coolent temp. sensor & Intake air temp. sensor
the yellow wire is the 5V reference and the black wire the is the PCM ground sensor
make sure your not using teflon tape on the threads of the temp sensor.
it sounds like the PCM wont turn it on. check the harness for continuity between temp. sensor and PCM harness
clear connecter - pin 17 black, pin 31 yellow
