Having problems with your 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII ?

I have a 1998 Lincoln Mark 8 and cannot find out where the Tempature Control sensor for the fan is located! And good ideas? Thanks

Answers :

It should be directly below the power steering reservoir.
The car does not use a temp. sensor to run the cooling fans, there is a coolant temp. sensor that sends a signal to the power control module and then the PCM turns the cooling fans on at 223 degrees. also the climate control system sends a single to the PCM that the A/C is on and then there is a pressure sensor in the high pressure A/C line when the pressure gets over 310 psi in the A/C system the PCM will then turn on the cooling fans.

Cooling fans on 1994 Caprice classic with 4.3 v8 not coming on. I have replaced the temp sensor on the water pump, temp sensor on the block, all relays, fuses are good, replaced the ecm (engine control computer). Gave up and took it to an mechanic, they sent to electrician who now says the even though the temp gauge is rising when the temp goes up it is not sending signal to computer to kick fans on. Does the gauge send the signal to the fans? Seems everyone else has been telling me the sens

Overheating I had the radiator flushed and the thermostat and cap replace by the radiator guys, it's still overheating. I then get told my fan isn't coming on soon enough, does the temp sensor control the fan? and where is the temp sensor located

Hi i have a 2004 2.8 fiat ducato and the main thermo fan for the radiator is not turning on. If i short relay to7 or to6 the fan comes on. Can you tell me if the wire on the control side of to6 and to7 goes straight to the water temp sensor or where it does go so i can trace out why the signal is not getting to the relays. Coils on both relays are good so i suspect the signal is not reaching it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated thankyou.

My Lincoln is misfiring! I had all spark plugs and boots changed but. still misfiring in cyclinder 2! Now my traction control light is on and my radio is doing crazy things on steering column.
