Honda crx dx auxiliary fan not turning on

Age: 23 Posts: 2 iTrader: (0) Replacing thermostat for fan bypass crx dx hi
my crx dx 85 has a home made bypass fan switch,
i am going to put it back original factory settings, so ive
considered putting a new thermostat in the radiator,
and then replug the electrical wires there.
there seems to be some electrical wires behind the carburetor,
do you think that is related to the fan switch bypass?
also what other parts should be replaced, or be checked so that the fan
will automatically spin.
thanks for the needed help

Check the relay inside the engine compartment. It may be sticking allowing the 12v's to stay on the cooling fan. Sometime this box that contain the relays are on the passanger side.

SOURCE: Radiator fan not working

Hi. Check the bottom of the radiator or on the side, as you also have a temperature-sending switch. The switch must reach a certain temperature before sending a signal on to the fan relay.

The switch just screws into the radiator.

If you would like to contact me again about this or other problems, feel free to do so.

SOURCE: car overheat

The rad fan is required to keep your engine at a normal operating temp. When you are going at hiway speeds the fan is not needed. When you stop then the fan has to operate to keep the engine cool.If the fan is not operating, it could be the fuse or fan relay or temp sensor or computer This problem should be checked by someone who is a professional..

My radiator fan on my 1989 Honda Crx HF will not come on...and it causes it to overheat. Suggestions?

1. Try to spin the fan manually to be sure that the motor isn't seized.
2.) Unplug the fan. Hook up a multimeter to the terminals and see if it ever delivers power. If it does, replace the fan.
3.) If it does not then it is probably your thermostat. You can you tube how to replace that for under $50.00.

I have a 91 honda crx dx model..i was sriving down the freeway and the engine stopped..i had full power lights and all and the car wouldnt start again for about 10 minutes then it finally started

Main relay has dry joints. Remove it, from under the coin tray in between door and steering wheel under dash. Resolder the join and refit. You don't need a new one, just the joints are dry.

Very common and gives you the willies when it kills you car on the freeway.

Vote for me if this helps you.

c8cfdc0.jpgthis is an exploded view of the thermostat. it is located below the throttle body. youll need to remove the air intake tube and the lower radiator hose. there will be alot of coolant come out when the radiator hose is removed and slightly more when the thermostat is removed. rememeber to refill the engine with coolant and let the engine heat up enough for the cooling fans to cycle twice .

check your wiring for dirty connections or broken wires, you may have wires that are rubbed through or connectors that are not making full contact. you will need an ohm meter and check wires for continuity. a wiring diagram will be needed.

85 crx dx clutch problem with clutch not gripping fast enough

Sounds like the master or slave cylinder leak, maybe even a hose inbetween, check the fluid level on the master cylinder. Repalce what is leaking and bleed the fluid to get any air thats got in there out. I hope this helps.
