On my wife's 1992 honda accord the cooling fan kicks on after the ignition is turned off. Her battery had died before and I wondered if that may be the source of the battery drain. If so what might be the reason for the cooling fan to kick on after the car is off and where should I look first?


First check the temperature switch for failing closed. you can do this with a test light or ohmmeter. with the car cold, put one test light lead on the battery positive and the other on the temp switch terminal. If your light comes on, replace the ... 1992 Honda Accord

Have 2008 malibu air runs cool for a while an then cuts off you can hear compresser kick off an then it will kick back on an cool for a while,i've tried to put freon in it but will not take,thanks in advance


You might have a block in the line for the freon,(oriface tubes are known to clogg up). you would have to drain the system and take apart the lines to the dryer and see if the tube is clogged. ... 2008 Chevrolet Malibu

The ac compressor runs and cools properly when temp is cool,but on warmer days it will run then kick out and will not kick back in for several hours later.All pressures are good...the freon charge is full.It also will tell the compressor to run when the temp control is set for heat when the compressor is not doing it's "vacation thing". Tried three different controllers(automatic)with the same result for all three.The original problem began when the first controller started working backwards.W

Ihave a 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 4wd. My air conditioning runs cool when low, but if I turn it to the max cool setting it blows warm air, not cool at all. If i start in max air then it might blow cool for a very short time, but kicks back out. Do you know what this could be.


Check fans in front of engine for proper operation,they haft to work in order for air to get cold,also the condensor in front of radiator has to be clean-check belt for tightness and theres a switch on ac lines that turns on fan and also shuts off co ... 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck

The best thing here if you take the fan off the sensor and it still runs and does not shut off its the sensor that is common sense there. Replaceing the sensor will shore this up more often then not in this case. Otherwise if you think it is the swit ... Chevrolet Lumina

00 jetta ac not cooling, fans and a/c comp./clutch is working but no cool air.. unhooked the low side switch i think it is up top near the fire wall clutch kicks off on the a/c compressor so im guessing that switch is in working order.. a/c lines are not getting cool and blowing hot out of the vents, did blow freon out of the high and low sides of the line.. what could be the issue thx..


I would guess your freon has slowly leaked out, and now simply needs to be recharged. You can buy an AC recharge kit with R134 at Walmart or someplace, and do it yourself quite reasonably. If it doesn't cool after that the way everything else seems t ... 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

Cooling system our cooling system is going crazy. we have replaced everything on entire line. this includes radiator,water pump,thermostat,all sensors associated with heating and cooling but coolant will not circulate through the engine and fans will not kick on.temp. indicator reads hot but you can put your finger in the radiator and it's not even hot.

2001 Grand Am..Fixed overheating problem thanks to this site,however my cooling fan dosn't come on unless I turn AC on.Also,could you tell how I high temp needs to be before they kick on.I notice in manual there are a bunch of relays & fuses for cooling fans #1 which relay and fuse would I need to change if this is the reason..Thanks Jan


Should kick on at about 220 degrees. The proper way to check is with a scanner to see what the computer is seeing. If it never reaches that temp the computer will not turn it on. The fact that you can turn it on with the AC tell me that the PCM has ... 2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE

My engine won't cool itself down sometimes. I'm thinking its the thermostat or the sensors. When the engine gets too hot I turn on the heat full blast and it cools off. Just today I did just that but the heat didn't turn on. Sometimes it takes untill the engine is almost at hot for the heat to kick in.


Replace the thermostat,and coolant sensor,and add coolant,and bleed all the air out of the cooling system,if this does not help,replace the radiator. ... 1996 Buick Century

I have a 1996 Chrysler Town & Country LXI with 147k miles. Everything works fine except for HVAC which often takes several minutes to kick in and often becomes intermittent in both the heating and cooling modes. Also, when working, the degree of heating and cooling seems to vary. Is there a DIY solution?


Check the rheostat. Probably it is malfunctioning for some reason, probably age. It falls under the DIY category. ... 1996 Chrysler Town & Country

My 2003 Oldsmobile Silhoutte Van overheats when going through town if has been running for a while If I can get a speed above 50 mph then it starts to cool down. What can be the problem In December, they told me that intake gaskets needed replaced. I was having to add antifreeze about every three days. all hoses have been inspected and a test of the manifold gaskets done no problems there. Local mechanic believes it could be the cooling fans but does not know when exactly they should kick


They should kick in at 218 to 220 degrees,but then they should go off by them selves ,make sure there is no air in the cooling system,and maybe change the coolant sensor,and thermostat,if this problem persist,the radiator would most likely be the pro ... 2003 Oldsmobile Silhouette

I have a 2003 Jeep Liberty. The radiator cooling fan stopped working and the car almost overheated. I replaced the relay with the new style with the cooling pins and the fan now comes on, though intermittently. When I drive it with the A/C on, it works initially. If I stop somewhere and get back in the car, the A/C will only blow hot, and the temp gauge will go up if I stop in traffic. I can hear the A/C clutch kicking on and off continuously at this point. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn


No but there are a couple of cooling fan switches that could be causing your problem both are mounted on the motor one near the thermostat housing the other will be in the block one near the thermostat usually controls the fans. ... 2003 Jeep Liberty

I recharge the a/c but it does not cool very well if at all and when in park it hardly cools either even less-mau have a small leak but there is something else-compressor kicks in but what of the evaporator


By recharged do you mean you put in leak sealer? Try a can of that if you want to save money for the short run. I have on occasion had it work like a champ. Also you may need 3 cans of freon because once leaked down there is a need for more than the ... 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe

My son has a 1995 camaro 3.4 L engine. Recently there's been a cooling problem. Sometimes when he goes out it runs fine with the temp around 180/190. I put in a 180 thermostat.Sometimes the temp goes up almost to the red and then drops down about 1/2 way. It will then go up and down between 1/2 and 3/4. The elec. fan kicks on, and I put on a new w/p about 1 year ago. After using the car and letting it cool the coolant level in the raditor is low, needing 8-16oz to fiil it back up. There's no lea

2005 New Beetle conv. Power top quits usually half way open, somtimes goes all the way and quits while closing it. When this happens I open the valve in the trunk so I can operate it manually. I thinks maybe there's a relay or breaker kicking off somewhere. If I try it later on or the next day it does the same thing. Could the switch be faulty? Is the switch some kind of relay that might be kicking off and coming back on after cooling down? Very aggravating to say the least. Any help you can g

My AC doesn't work. When I switch it on either "Auto" or "Max AC" the fan indicater shows full on and I hear the compressor kick in but the fan doesn't kick-in and no cool air comes out. I went under the hood and the compressor line gets cold. I checked the fuse and it's good. Where do I go from here?


You need to check the AC unit under your dash. I suspect an issue with the fan. Either it is dirty, wires are loose or the fan is not working. ... 2002 Lincoln Town Car
