Your Lumina 2001 engine light might come on while the radiator fan is working because the fan is turning too slowly, is damaged, or is not cooling the engine correctly.
Fuse in fuse block, Fan relay on drivers side strut tower or the fan itself is dead.
yes, the engine fan need to b running whenever the engine is on the fan is to cool radiater, it only comes on when the engine gets to warm, to cool engine down.
I assume your talking about the engine fan, not the cabin fan. The engine fan is designed to come on only when the engine gets hot enough for it. I.E. the fan won't turn on in the dead of winter, or if you just start your car. The fan will turn on whenever the A/C is turned on though, as part of the Air cooling system.
if its a standard engine with a pulley fan then try replacing the fan clutch. its the silver part attached to the fan and the engine. might need to replace the belts as well.
Some of these fans will not engage until the heat sensor gets to a certain temperature. The engine needs to be hot for the fan to come on.
possibly reversed wiring or perhaps a bad PCM, the PCM is supposed to override the sensor and turn on the fan anytime the AC is on.
your fan does not come on unless your car gets hot.if you lift your hood when you start your car the fan will not be running .but when your car gets to hot it will come on.or you may have a short in it.....check out
The blower fan might not come on because the temperature sensor is damaged or malfunctioning. It also might not come on because of an exposed wire or a blown fuse.
That is the fan cooling the liquid in the radiator to keep the engine from over heating.
It could possibly be the thermostat or the cooling fan. Let the engine warm up and when it gets to 232 to 235 degrees the cooling fan should come on. If not you need to go from there.
if it a electric fan it may just be bad now if it runs of the water pump it may be a bad fan clutch. or it could be the thermostat. or fan relay. It could also be the sensor in the computer has gone bad which means you need a new computer.
The low-speed fan will come on when your engine temperature reaches 180 degrees. The high speed fan will come on. When the engine temperature reaches 200 degrees.
AnswerThe fact that it comes on when the A/C is on indicates the fan motor is good. The fan will only come on when the temperature sensor indicates the engine needs additional cooling. While traveling down the road the fan will rarely come on. It will come on in stop & go traffic. If the engine is not overheating, then you have no problem.there is a fan behind the radiator that is temp controlled & a fan in front of the radiator that runs when the A/C is on.
That is normal.
Hook up a thermostat to your ceiling fan so when your room gets hot your fan will come on!
The fan might spin slowly, or not at all. By not spinning at speed, the fan will not cool the radiator enough and the engine could overheat.
Your car fan turns on when you have your air condition unit on because, your engine heats up more when the air is on so the fan needs to come on to cool the engine down.
It might faulty temperature switch or the fan itself.
I believe it turns on and off the fan (1 out of 2) that cools the engine according to the temperature it's at. If it doesn't work the engine may not know to turn the fan on and the engine could overheat. Here's a tip. When you turn on your A/C or Heater, both fans come on. The A/C cooling fan and the Engine Cooling fan.
If you have the AC turned on the fan will come on to help cool the engine from the load on the engine. If your car has dual fans only one should come on at that time and the other one would come on when the sensor obtains the required heat range.
It is the cooling fan for the engine. Even if you shut the engine off, the cooling fan will continue to run until the engine heat gets back down to a normal level. The fan can turn on at anytime. Watch your fingers.
Start the engine up and let it run until it gets to running temperature 195 degrees are so. Then have someone to turn the engine off while you are looking at the fan on the front of the engine. If the fan clutch is good then when the engine is turned off the fan should only turn 1 or 2 turns then stop. If the fan keeps spinning more then that then the fan clutch is bad. Replace it.
yes it does on almost every vehicle
Cooling fan is designed to come on only when A/C, defrost, or engine temperature exceeds 235 degrees
