Having problems with your Mazda MX-6 ?
When car is being driven, the fan is on all of the time,even tho temp.gauge is on normal,ie halfway.
The cooling fan will stay on if the sender has an open, or the wiring to the sender is open, or the control module has a fault, this is known as fail safe so you don't fry the engine, make sense? you need to run a self test for fault codes, Kragen will do this free.

My car is a VW Cabrio 2000 The fan used to stay on for a couple of minutes once the car was turned off, but it stopped doing it a couple of months ago. The car overheats when driven over a steep hill, not much but then I have to reduce speed to make sure it doesn't go too far. Changed the Thermostat about a year ago, so not sure what it is. I guess the fan is not working at all and that's why it happens, how can I know if it's the fan or another element?
The most common problem I have found with the fans are the relays, not that they are bad, but they loose connection. Same with all of the fuses. Corrosion causes alot of resistance and drops the voltage supply. Try pulling and reinserting the relays ... Volkswagen Cabrio

Own a 2002 buick lesabre with a 3800 engine in it. The car was involved in a deer collision which resulted in front end damage which ruined the radiator, fans condenser,ect. The car had to be driven 2.5 miles with the radiator leaking to get it off the interstate. When the car was repaired it was driven about 375 miles when the intake leaked coolant into the engine causing the engine to lock up. The insurance company says this common with this motor and has nothing to do with the accident. What

Just bought a 05 SLE Bonneville...and on the way home the push button on/off fan button would not turn the fans on. The fans worked fine when the car was driven up from North Carolina. In Minnesota, we drove it home, and the fans would not turn on. We pushed the on/off fan button and the LED would show OFF, when we pushed it again...the fans would not turn on? and there was not an LED indication that the fans were now on?

Had car running went inside store and when i came out the car was making a weird slapping sound so i hurried up and drove the car home. When i popped the hood i saw a belt all ripped up its directly on the left side of the engine, of a 95 geo prizm. Other then the ssound of the broken belt the car seemed to be driving okay tho i only did go about a half mile or less. Just trying to determin if its something like the surpintene belt which would be the worse or hopefully a fan belt

I have a 2000 S80 with 55,000 miles, only owner to this car. Car is hardly driven. Recently I replaced the rack and pinion because it broke. Then replaced battery. Now the car is always stalling. What do you think is wrong? Volvo repair has disconnected the fan, changed the voltage regular, took out air from steering module, replaced mass air flow. What else could be wrong?
Could be the idle control sensor,or it's the tps going into limp mode,check both.\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012 ... 2000 Volvo S80
I've got a 97 Avalon XLS and the h20 overflow tank is bubbling. The temp gauge gets a little over halfway hot. In the winter it seemed like the heater never really got that hot. Now I turned off the a/c while car is running in garage and let it run for about 10 minutes. The overflow tank started to fill but the fans never come on. When the a/c is on the fans are on. I am wondering if I have two offsetting problems the thermostat being stuck open therefore little heat in the winter and the fans n

Car Overheating I have a 2005 equinox. Recently started to overheat to a point where the temp would be 100% I would shut the car down at 3/4 line before it reached fully hot. I flushed the system 3 differant occasions. I have no leaks. When sitting at idle it does just fine gets about halfway which is normal for this vehicle. However when I drive on the highway or to the local store it will hit the 3/4 line then when the fans kick on it will go back down between the 1/4 and 1/2 line. But after t

I have a Cadillac 2000 STS with the V8 Northstar engine. Can you help me locate the water temperature/coolant sensor. I am trying to get thru why it is boiling over the resevoir box and into the engine comp. I think the cooling fans are not coming on and also the gauge (inside car)only goes up halfway. If the water is that hot it should to me seem to read even higher and I have heard that the fan also may work off the same sensor as the temp gauge. I have looked at the 2 30amp fuses and they are

Car runs well but after driving it awhile the fan does not come on. the temp gauge in the dash does not go up past halfway but steam comes from under the hood.the fan works and i replaced the temp sencer in the radiator.what else could it be?
Maybe the water pump is not pumping, allowing the coolant to get hot because its not circulating to cool itself down, via the radiator. The steam could be coming from the overflow on the drivers side by the headlight. When everything else works, the ... 1991 Toyota Celica

Remove the raidator cap while running or watch the overflow tank for bubbles. If you see bubbles either way, most likely your cause of the overheating is a leaking head gasket. If you have a cooling system pressure tester, pump up the cooling system ... 1989 Ford Crown Victoria
