Having problems with your 1999 Mercury Cougar ?

When the fan is not working that means one of three things. first check to see if you have voltage going to the fan. second check to see that the fuses and fan relay are good. third if the connections are good and you have voltage it could be the temp sensors for the fan are bad. one last thing with the engine off check that the fans free spin and are not locked up.

Hi, the fuse and relays are in the box in the engine compartment. The wiring diagram is also shown below. The PCM turns the fans off and on based on data it receives from the coolant temp sensor and the A/C settings. The sensor is on the back of the engine as shown in the pics below. On the 4 cylinder engine, you have to remove the air cleaner to access the sensor. On the V-6, it may be easier to access from under the car. Please let me know if you have more questions.

I have a 2003 Aurora, my headlamps on low and high beam have become so dim. They have not always been this way. Very hard to drive at night! Does anyone know why my headlamps are not functioning properly? It's weird because all headlamps are dim, it's not like one is bad, and the other good. Could it be a fuse problem? I don't want to buy all new bulbs and they not be getting proper voltage. Is there someway you can check and see if the fuses are working correctly?

There is no heat or a/c. The fan does not blow. I have checked the fuse (it was good). I checked for power at the fan motor. There is no poser at the fan motor plug, no power at the fan switch (at plug) in the console. I replaced a relay which was located on the drivers side (under hood on wheel well) which looked like it had over heated, but there was no change. I do not get any voltage at the a/c compressor. I do get a small amount of voltage (maybe 2 or 3 volts) at the pressure switch

The heater fan won't stop, even if i turn off the key the fan still turn, unable to control it, it only turn at one speed (not the fastest one), i check the resistor it look like there's a short in it, the voltage past true the batt to the motor without any signal. I change it, the second one work for at least 1h30, now the problem still the same the only difference it's the speed of the fan with the second one it's turn slower, but i can't control it.

Cooling fans? I have a 2005 pontiac G6 GT,if im somewhere at a stand still for to long its starts to over heat and after it gets to a little over the half way marker, one of the fans turns on and then the tempature starts to drop back to normal. Now there are two fans and one only appears to be turning on, is there a certain temp for both fans to run? Is there a relay that i can check? how do i test the fan to see if everything is working properly?

I have a 2004 Volkswagon Passat with the 1.8T engine. The air conditioner is not working. I have checked the line pressure(s) and have around 75 psig on both the suction and discharge lines (appears the pressure has equalized across the compressor). I have checked voltage at the compressor connection and there is voltage going to the compressor. I have also checked continuity and the ground is good as well. I cannot locate a suction pressure switch to see if it is bad or not. Also, I have found
