Your fan moter is pulling to many amps.What this means is when your fan kicks on the power load is so high its burning the points in the relay. Replace the fan moter!

Why would the cooling fans not work on a 94 Saturn sl1?

Is the motor in this 1993 Saturn slY going to overheat by using a radiator out of a Chevy Celebrity?

If the Chevy Celebrity radiator is smaller that the Saturn radiator it might well overheat from not enough cooling capacity. If the Chevy Celebrity radiator is the same size or larger than the Saturn radiator I would think it would not over heat.

On a 1994 Saturn SC2 why would the cooling fan not come on unless you hook it up direct if you just changed the coolant temperature sensor?

Have you checked the cooling fan relay? ? This is the child's wooden block size relay installed in the fuse/relay box in under the hood. If it is bad the fan will not come on even if all the other sensors and components of the system are functioning. Also, This cooling fan relay draws a lot of amperage which causes it to heat up. On my '92 SC2, I have learned that the contacts of the relay have become so hot from the high current they carry that the fuse box sockets overheat and deform. It became necessary for me to open up the upper and lower halves of the fuse box and install new conductors to restore good contact with the relay pins. If you find that your cooling fan relay pins are discolored and the plastic housing is slightly deformed around the pins, you are likely haveing a similar problem. For a while I was able to just slightly twist the pins of a new relay using a pair pliers so that they would make tighter contact in the deformed sockets of the relay box. Hope this helps, JB

Why would cooling fans stay on and kill the battery?

All but the earliest versions of this car have the cooling fans controlled by the computer through a relay.So the first suspect is the relay. When the fans stay on take out the relay in the power distribution box, most commonly under the hood. If the fans stop swap the relay with another in the box, I usually use the horn relay, usually the same relay.Next possible problem is an electrical problem triggering the relay.Third is the computer itself could be faulty.

On a 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan 3.3 cooling fans stay on with the car turned off until the fans run the battery dead?

this could be caused by a fautly cooling temp sensor, sending a false reading to the cooling fan relay, causing the fan to continue running, also, could be caused by a faulty relay, I would rerplace both.

Why would the cooling fan not come on a 91 sunbird replaced cooling fan motor and relay cooling fan now comes on when you jump across buut not with new or old relay in?

When you jump across it, you are shorting out the circuit - commonly used for testing components to see that they will turn on. When everything is connected the way it should be, there is also a thermostat which comes into play in the circuit - unless the thermostat gives the "command" for cooling, the fans will not start up.

How do you get the colling fan to stop on a 2003 Saturn L200?

Often a cooling fan will stay on simply because the AC compressor is on, and the compressor stays on when you are using the AC or defroster. However, if the fan remains on when the key is off, check the relay. I believe the relay is the same type used for the horn so you could briefly "swap" them to see if the horn remains on. If you find that the relay is sticking, you can purchase a new one at most auto parts stores, just don't go far (5 minutes of engine running at maximum) without a cooling fan; you don't want to run the risk of overheating the engine... that would be expensive.
