Asked in Radiators
What is the purpose of a temperature unit sensor will it make your radiator fan stay on constantly?
The temperature sensor you're asking about is a device that detects a temperature above a specific point, usually somewhere around 180F, then closes the contacts of a switch. The switch can directly run a motor or it may be connected to a relay. If the contacts of the temperature sensor switch become damaged they can weld together and the switch will stay on constantly.
