If fuses are blowing then this is a indication the a hot wire is grounding out. Now as for the fan,alot of times what happens is that the sensor that tell the fan to kick on goes bad and someone wires them direct" Bad move " make sure there is no wires touching each other and that it is wired correctly and buy new sensor that controls fan.

The steering wheel control panel gets very warm, where it's almost to hot to touch. when air condition is on high the fan mkes a whinning noise. When trying to put it in first gear it will not go in, only if you start at park go really fast and hard motion to first will go into first. On the front passenager floorboard side gets really extra warm. If you have anything on the floorboads it gets to hot to touch. When stop at a light after awhile it make a clunning sound and you can fill it. ga


Hi Ethel,It sounds like there may be several unrelated problems. The one of most concern to me is the steering wheel control panel getting 'too hot to touch'. Air bags are sensitive to heat. I worry about the accidental deploy ... 2007 GMC Envoy Denali

The cooling fan of the 2002 chevrolet trailblazer does engage in high rev when the engine gets hotter, so the temp keeps going up. The fan clutch is new as I change it because of the above mentioned. Can this be caused because the fan clutch does not receive any signal due to Engine Cooling Fan Wiring Harness problems (short-circuit)?

I turn on my air conditioner and the compressor comes on and it starts to get cool like normal, but the radiator fan won't come on and so the freon builds up enough pressure to vapor lock the compressor and cause a gut wrenching squeal from the belt until i manage to turn it off. the radiator fan WILL come one when the engine gets hot enough, so i know its good. i want to fix it the right way, but if not i may try to rig it and MAKE it work, any suggestions for how to rig it or what may be wrong


Sorry, but your compressor is failing, maybe install more oil charge, but may be too late. ... 1993 Ford Mustang

On my 1996 3.8L Camaro, the only way to get the cooling fans to operate is to disconnect the connector from the coolant temperature sensor, then both fans continuously operate. With the temp sensor plug connected, neither fan operates even with A/C turned on. The sensor has been replaced (twice), relays replaced, computer replaced, and the wires shoot good to/from the sensor plug. Any ideas on what would cause this condition?

I am trying to locate the relay panel on my 99 vw passat 2.8 gls. My electric cooling fan was broken so I replaced it last night and tested it on the battery to verify it works- but it is not getting power from the plug. My guess is that one of the relay switches/fuses are blown. When I removed the old fan, I could see where the wires were burned and had obviously touched. I am not sure if the relay panel is under the dash or hood. Thanks for any help! Emily


Open the drivers door .. on the end of the dash (normally covered by the door) is a panel .. pop off that panel and the fuses are there .. of course fix the problem that caused the wires to burn then locate the fuse .. not easy since they give you a ... 1999 Volkswagen Passat

I have a 1995 jeep cherokee sport 4wd 4.0L with air ps/pb/cc/abs.

Never just replace any item because someone suggested it may have failed. Before replacing anything, you need to check each item for any signs it's bad. In addition to what I mentioned, the blower motor itself can also cause a problem if it is worn o ... 1995 Jeep Cherokee

My factory alarm is now armed permanently and the engine will crank but not start. I pulled the alarm module with the ignition off which I understand could have caused a more serious lockdown. I have tried unlocking both doors with the key and I have disconnected the battery. I've seen a few suggestions including grounding the Lt Green / Orange wire at the module. The car is 30 miles from home and I'd rather not have to pay for a tow but I'd also like to get it running on the first try. Tha

My car keeps over heating and we have gotten to the source. The electrical center is fouling. The relay for the first fan is not working. I thought I wasnt getting power to the box.
