My radiator fans won't turn on when 212 degree temp is reached. I checked all relays and fuses and connections and all are properly connected. This started after I flushed the system out. Even after backtracking I still could not find a possible cause. I ran a jumper wire from the ground of the relay to the ground of the battery and the fans immediately turn on. I turn on AC and the secondary fans turn on like they are supposed to. But when temp gets to spec all fans are supposed to operate and

Overheating I have replaced engine coolant sensor and relay and the engine electric fan does not come on. I connected the fan direct and it turns on. What else can I check? I have a '93 formula firebird (LT1) Both my fans check out. Electrically everything seems sound. I just changed the thermostat and still does not work. The engine block however is hot and the return hose to the radiator is cold, so my thinking is the cooling pump has failed. My only worry/question is what turns on the primary


Thermostat is not opening, or is installed backwards is why the hose stays cold. Make sure the nugget is facing the engine block. If this is correct, make sure the belt is installed correctly and is rotating the water pump in the right direction. ... 1999 Pontiac Firebird

I got a P1491 error code when my van overheated. I replaced the Relay and the fans, i was told are supposed to turn on with the AC. Fans will not turn on with AC. I checked the 40 volt fuse and it is fine. I used 12 volts directly to each fan and they both work. I see the fan relay connecter has 4 wires numbered 1,2,3,4---How does this work? I tried connecting 12 volts through the plug and wires 2 and 4 will run both fans, but 1 and 3 aren't doing anything. Thanks for your help

Coolant leaking I have a 1996 saturn that is leaking coolant from the passenger side tordge the front closer to the tire area. I recently put a new radiator in. So im assuming thats not the problem.Also my fan doesnt always turn on like its suppose to I have to turn on my air conditioning in order to turn my fan on sometimes.Anyone know what could be wrong??

95 chevy caprice classic 5.7 engine jus installing the new distributior cap i got stuck when i seen the screws are too small i dont have the socket its smaller then 5/32 does any one know the size?...

I believe the socket size is 3/16 or 1/4. Most of the time you can use a multitip screw driver without the tip installed. This is not a true 1/4 socket size but works for most bolts like this. As far as the overheating issue there is a fan relay alon ... 1995 Chevrolet Caprice Classic

While going down a hill with temps at or lower that 50, and raining out going very slow stop to 5 mph for 30 minutes due to traffic, I turned off my climate control to give the system a break. This apparently shut down the cooling fan since the A/C was turned off but then the engine started to overheat.

Hot wire the fan to the battery...If it fails to go on, the fan itself is bad. You sure the compressor is engaging? Generally even if the fan isn't on, there is enough air going through the grille to keep a/c cool. ... 2005 Nissan Pathfinder
