95 buick regal two fans in front , one make clicking noise after vehicle turned off. Its continues to spin and makes a clicking noise after turning off engine


It is normal for the fan to stay on after the engine is off. The clicking is not. Once the negine is cooled down and the fan is not running. check the fan by spinning it and try to locate the clicking noise. Make sure the fan doesn't wobble. If it does then the bearings are going out, replace the fan. The clicking could be something lodged in the shroud, clicking against the fan blade. Like a stick.

Tip

How to test and replace radiator cooling fan.


Hi.

Here a tip illustrating steps to test and replace the radiator cooling fan and the parts that may cause cooling fan malfunctioning.

Before replacing the fan, make sure that the fan is really faulty.
Read volts at fan contacts or jump the fan wiring to energize the fan directly.Ensure that fan blades are not blocked.

If the fan is OK, then the faulty part is either thermostat or fan relay.Ensure also that you have tested the 15A fuse in the junction block and the 40A fuse located in the Power distribution Center (PDC).

Here a diagram showing the location of the fan relay:

Finally, here below the steps required to replace the fan. The procedure is quite simple.

  • Disconnect the battery negative cable and set it apart.
  • Disconnect the electrical connector to the radiator fan.
  • Undo the bolts that hold the top fan housing and fan assembly (this is called Radiator Shroud).
  • Remove the Radiator Shroud housing.The radiator shroud will come out with the fan sliding toward the top side.
  • Install the new fan performing the operations in reverse order.

Here a diagram showing radiator shroud and cooling fan assembly:

I would suggest replacing the cooling fan relay in the fuse compartment under the hood first. Cooling fan motors very, very rarely go bad. You will probably end up having to remove the radiator to remove the shroud. You will save yourself a lot of time and money if you replace the relay first.
