Having problems with your 1998 Lincoln Town Car ?

My 1998 Lincoln Towncar has a problem with the radiator fan motor

\015 It has an intermittent problem with the radiator fan motor. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. If I mess with the radiator fan connector on the fan motor it will work for a while but it dooesn't stay working very long. It seems like the connector is bad. I cannot seem to figure out how to remove it to check it out. I ordered a fan motor connector kit for it. Can anyone tell me how to remove that connector for the radiator fan so I can check it out. Thanks, Leroy Lewis\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 22-01-2018

Answers :

The connector has a release lock tab push in and release......what might of happen is that the connector got HOT and melted in the fan terminal .seen that more than once happen.. if so cut it off, get a new connector and splice to the loom ...as for the fans intermit operation...check the LOW/HI relays in the relay box located RF in the engine compartment also...hope this helps you..GL

I've yet to find a solution to my problem. Everyone telling me the same thing about the location of the radiator cooling fan motor relay. Its not located in either fuse box. Before replying would you please go to the AUTO ZONE web site n look up the part for a 2004 Envoy 4.2L (RADIATOR COOLING FAN MOTOR) so you will know exactly what relay I'm talking about. The fan relay and the other relay are totally different.

The radiator fan motor is not working while it reaches the prpoer tempature, nor is it turning on when AC is on. I washed the engine and had no problems in this area, but after I washed it. Not even ten minutes later it started. At first the fan motor was not turning on when it reaches its tempature and it would turn on when I turned on the AC, but now they both stopped working.


Could be water in one of the wiring connectors.You would need to check the fan relays to see if they have power and a ground signal from the computer when they are needed. ... 1995 Ford Mustang

Electrical fans The electrical fans run permanent on the 2.2 Camry . None of the fan 1 or fan 2 relays are operated .the sensor on radiator was already changed . I took the car to toyota locally and a motor electrician , but they can't get the problem..


The cooling fans always receive power form the battery. The relays, when applied, allow the ground to pass onto the fan motors to operate them. Either your relays are stuck in the "active" position, or your fan motor wires (white with the black trace ... 1996 Toyota Camry

Heating Problem I have 99 chevy Cavalier. I have been having problems with it since last summer. It over heated, and I had to replace the water pump, then the radiator fan motor, then the heat sencer and the thermostat. Now I'm not getting heat at high speeds (50mph or higher) and the temp gage goes backwards. I can do city driving and get heat. I've been told by alot of other people that I have a air pocket in the water system. I also have a bleeder screw to bleed it but it snapped off.


Air would of come out if it overheated, it would of most likely been forced out into the overflow tank. have the water in the radiator tested to see if you have a blown head gasket. ... 1994 Chevrolet Cavalier

Have a 1997 Buick LeSabre Limited with automatic climate control. The blower has stopped running. We checked the fuses (all OK). We did find a slight current however to the blower motor (about 2 volts at any setting and 0 when the engine is turned off) although there is no evidence that the fan is turning. I have read all of the postings in this site that may relate to this and wonder if it is a blower control module problem because, when it is that unit, the report is always of the fan


Hi, if all the fuses checked are o.k, there is a slight of about 2 volts to the blower when put on any settings and 0 volt when engine is turned off, then it is obvious that you have a faulty blower control module that fails to transmit the required ... 1993 GMC Sierra

My car is running hot what could the problem be some say the radiator fan motor and some say the relay switch help
