How do you bypass a radiator fan relay so the fan will run whenever the engine is on a 94 Chevy Cavalier?

By running a ground wire-(jumper) across the terminals on the fan motor relay.

Find the terminals that connect to the relay's switch, and short them out like the relay would do.

Doing this will burn the electric fan motor out very quickly. Your best bet is to replace the relay and possibly the coolant temperature sensor. The sensor is about $16 and the relay about $14 and the fan motor about $38-$50 at Autozone.

This is unwise, an engine that is not near 195 degrees is not running efficiently. The ECM and BCM control the fan.

Should be in a removable housing at the engine end of the upper radiator hose

Lookat the the lower end of the engine behind the radiator

Follow the top radiator hose from the radiator to the engine, where it connects is the thermostat housing, the thermostat is inside.

The thermostat on a Chevrolet Cavalier 1.7 diesel is located on the side of the engine. It can be found by following the upper radiator hose.

2.2L Between the radiator and engine,,,, 2.4L Between the engine and firewall....both bolted to the engine head.

Check the fan relay for the 1996 Cavalier. Also, check the coolant sensor, one of these is most likely bad.

Nevermind. The problems turned out to be the dash cluster is bad. No reason for the fan to come on as the engine never really gets warm. Mr Goodwrench proved the dash read 35 degrees higher than it should. BTW; There are two relays in the fuse holders on the left fender. One is for the radiator fan, the other is the inside compartment heater fan. You could just swap them IF you suspect a bad relay.

Probably on the front lower section of engine behind radiator--follow + battery cable

4 cylinder Look at the bottom of engine at the rear side of the radiator

no the radiator fan will only run when the engine is up to temp and needs to cool back down usually 180 to 220 degrees

User Avatar

* With the engine cold remove the radiator cap * Move a large container under to catch the coolant as you drain it * Drain the radiator by opening the drain plug at the bottom on the left side

Follow the top radiator hose back to the engine block. The thermostat is inside the housing where the radiator hose connects to the block.

Connected to the upper radiator hose. Coolant flows from the engine to the radiator to be cooled. The coolant temp. sensor should be screwed into it.
