Does a 95 cutlass supreme have a fuse for the cooling fans or only the relays. I dont see a fuse for the cooling fans. Neither fan is coming on, Ive jumped the fans they both work, Ive changed out the relays didnt help, is there anything besides the temp sensor that would keep them from coming on?


There are three fuses and two relays for your coolant fan. They should all be in your underhood fuse box. They may not be marked "coolant fan", so check them all, (2) 60 amp , (1) 20 amp, (1) 15 amp. If all the fuses are good, you may have a bad f ... 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

1993 Mercury Topaz engine running hot at high outside temps. Cooling fan for radiator does not come on until engine is far above its normal operating temperature. Then, it does a short run and shuts back off. When AC is kicked in, fan does not immediately come on, and it SHOULD run all the while AC is in operation. After a certain point, engine will stop, as if fuel pump failed. Opening fuel line at engine permits gasoline to flow, so I doubt diagnosis--as of yet. Is there a sensor for the

The Auxillary cooling fan will not operate. I changed the fan and relay but it still will not operate. Engine temp comes up over 200 degree's and should pull fan on like it used to do.


Normal operating temp is between 200 and 210. If it gets hotter than that there is a problem. The system works as follows: Temp sending unit sends signal to the computer which in turn completes the ground circuit to the relay which then turns ... Jeep Cherokee

Temperature fluctuation As soon as the ignition is switched on, the cooling fans come on, whether the operating temperature is reached or not. Also the temperature comes up to normal, under normal driving conditions, but as soon as you coast downhill the temp. guage drops to way below normal, indicating the cooling water cools down.


The water temp sensor is a switch that closes the circuit when the temp reaches a certain level and that switch sends power to the fans. Either your water temp sensor is faulty (always on) or the wiring from the sensor is shorted out. \015\ ... 1993 Subaru Legacy

Engine cooling fans dont come on until temp. gauge is almost red-lined. Already changed fan controled temp. sensor.

09 Pontiac g5 over heats while sitting at idle cooling fans not working they come on with the ac which is normal and after you turn the ac off they will stay on until engine cools back down and they shut off again which once again is normal operation. But when the engine temp starts to climb back over 196* they will not come back on until you turn the ac back on. I have moved the relays around to see if maybe a faulty relay is to blame but nada. Next step i would think is test the Ect sensor. Ho

ELECTRIC FANS ARE NOT coming on when temp is 250 deg or higher? Changed temp sensor and bled the sytem 3 times. This is after car is sitting idle for about 45 min with the A/C on HIGH; trying to make the temp hot so that the fans are triggered. Not likely that both fan motors are bad simultaneously is it? Even with a bad thermostat, the fans should come on if the temp is gauge is reading HOT, correct? Update: "roniecon" made some great suggestions as far as troubleshooting the cooling system
