Having problems with your 1997 Ford Escort ?
Should the thermal fan kick on when the A/C is turned on and run all the time that the A/C is on? There was a recent radio installation and probable rewire
The cooling fan should only kick in when the temperature sensor tells the computer it needs to. If the fan comes on immediately after you start a cold motor and the AC is switched off, you either have a bad sensor, a bad computer, or a bad fan relay. You are going to need a decent voltage meter and a shop manual to track this one down. Good Luck!!!
