I have a 1997 Ford Thunderbird. Upon turning the ignition key the cooling fan turns on and the car will not start. There is nothing you can do to make the car start until the cooling fan turns off which takes about 5-7 minutes. Once the fan shuts off, the car will run and drive for as long and as far as you like. Once you shut it off and go turn it back on, the cooling fan turns back on and will take 1-2 minutes before the car will start, once the cooling fan again shuts off. It also seems

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?

The low speed engine coolant fan does not come on when I start the car and turn on the AC. I blew a condenser and have replaced it but the freon pressure get over 300lbs on the hight side. The low speed fan is intermittant so I was able to recharge the AC systyem after replacing the condenser during a time when they were running. I have cheched the relays, they are good. the fuses are good, I applied 12VDC to the fans at the rely plug and both fans are good. I also turned off the AC and ran the

Won't start Worked fine last night, didn't start this morning. Battery level fine. Lights, radio, dashboard indicator lights, all work fine. Blower fan for heater doesn't work, and turning the ignition gets me silence. 12.3 volts to starter, multimeter registers 0 on other solenoid terminal when key is turned into start position. Seems like the restart relay is the common element between fan and starter, as I look closely at chassis wiring diagram. Probably have no A/C, but can't tell with engin


A friend here solved it. It was a bad connection of the ground wire, with the paddle-shaped connector loose. He cleaned it a bit, slid it back on, and crimped it a little (not easy to do in that tight space). Solved both problems. ... 1993 Isuzu Trooper

My Voyager is overheating, Ive flushed the radiator,changed the thermostat,radiator cap & temp.sending unit. The fan works properly but Ive replaced the relay that runs the fan,A/C,& temp. sending unit twice already. So as of right now I have the cooling fan bypassed to where its always on when I'm driving. But where im stuck is when it starts getting hot It will start to cool down when I drive very fast between stoplights,or when I turn on the heater.What else could be causing it to over heat?

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. I opened the hood and noticed the electric fans were not running and the engine was heating up to the red line on temp gauge. I shut it down and waited 10 minutes then started up still no fan a

I have a 2002 malibu and the cooling fans won't come on with the a/c off on there own even if the temp goes in the red. If you turn the a/c on the fans will come on and run until the temp goes down to where the fans should cut off even if you turn the a/c off after the fans start. I have replaced the temperature sensor and checked the fuses and relays and they all seem to be fine. Both fans are working as well.

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?... Also my fans are not turning on twhen they are suppose too they only turn on when i start the car up i put a new switch on the water pump and checked this pre cool relay under the hood is there another relay or fuse i need to change? the fans do work, but the car over heats when they dont turn on


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

When running the AC on my 1985 Lincoln Towncar the cold air seems mixed into the warm air, and somtimes only warm air comes out. The freon pressure is fine. With the fan on auto and AC set to the lowest temp, when going up hill or accelerating, the fan turns off and warm air seeps out. Then, 5 - 10 seconds later, the fan comes on and cooler air starts blowing again. However, it seems to me the cool air is always mixed with warm air and is therefore never that cool. This goes on over and

A/c problem. I have a 2004 Toyota sienna van 83000 Km.Bought in feb 2009. I replace dust& pollen filter that time. Now when I turn on A/c when the temperature is warmer, driver side vents blow air like I turn on just fan but after 15 minutes vents start blow mild warmer air. Passenger side vents blow mild cool air at the time A/c is turned on but after 15 minutes these vents blow air like just the fan is on. I am not aware of anything related to electical and electronics. Please tell me what it


Jasonjacob1 is right. If the air from the A/C is not cool, the only cause is low or empty refrigerant. This means that the gas that your vehicle uses to produce cool air is gone from the system. The solution is not to recharge the system but to locat ... 2004 Toyota Sienna

My 2002 escape will not turn over on hot days after driving it. All the dash lights come on, the fuel pump and fans all come alive, but turn the key and nothing happens (all the lights stay on, but the engine does not turn over). It starts right up in the morning (or on colder days) and drives with no problems. If the temperature outside is around 80, I have to open the hood and let the engine cool down before it will start after I've driven anywhere. Any ideas?

1988 Saab 900 non-turbo 8v. Although I am not overheating, and fuses seem ok, my driver side (cooling fan) fan comes on upon turning the ignition key on and upon start-up stays on. A/C not a factor as not hooked up and know already the passenger side fan is for A/C. Could this simply be a stuck thermoswitch located in top left of radiator? This seemed to start with both a new battery and replacing O2 sensor, with no wires or grounds disturbed. Thanks!

1995 Suzuki Sidekick, i was driving with AC on and when I came to a stop, the temp gauge started rising to Hot. I got off and checked the fan in the front of the radiator and it was off.. It's got two fans , so the one connected to the engine was cooling off the engine so that I could make it home. When i turned off the AC, the temp started going down to normal. I was raining when I was driving, could water had ruined the electric fan. If yes how can I double check this. I am mechanically


Yes very correct.The fan can be tested.The fan is controlled by the motor.Check out both.The voltage at the fan as well at the motor .It will show exact 12 volt.If there is no 12 volt then yes its faulty fan or if there is no 12 volt to motor then it ... Suzuki Sidekick
