In the cooler weather we are having, they will probably take longer to come on.
The side effect though has been the temperature guage spiking big time. Only spikes during city traffic, not highway. Oil is fine, radiator fluid is fine. Just those stupid fans don't ever fire up.
Yes One is called a "Radiator fan" and the other a "Condenser fan." The Radiator fan comes on when the engine coolant temperature is above 106C (223F). The Condenser fan comes on when you activate the Air Conditioning.
Check the thermal relay for the cooling fans.
they don't have a timer module for this year, the fans are controlled by a temp fan switch located in thermostat housing
The engine computer uses the coolant temperature sensor to decide when to activate the radiator fans. That sensor is the two wire one near where the upper radiator hose attaches to the engine.The engine computer uses the coolant temperature sensor to decide when to activate the radiator fans.

radiator is in front off the cooling fans ,in the front of engine.
yes,annoyingly ! solution should be comprehended in a recall
Yes, they should both come on.
Between the front bumper and the two cooling fans.
Low coolant, stuck thermostat, failed waterpump, plugged radiator, inoperative radiator fans, etc.
the temperature sencer tell your fans to turn on when the coolant in your radiator gets to hot
a 2000 model has 2 both are electric
Front left of engine. Behind radiator and fans, halfway down
overheating 94 Honda accordFirst you should check if your radiator has water and coolant, if not just fill it up to the appropriate level. Second it may also be your cooling fan relay or sensor if your fans do not turn on. Third which might the most expensive, your radiator maybe needs to be replaced.
== == Cooling fans are designed to start at 235 degrees
Electrical radiator fans are thermostat controlled, and won't start unless needed. With a bit of skill you can bypass the thermostat and test the fan itself, but testing the thermostat is a bit trickier.
remove the metal plate that covers the radiator, if you ever change a headlight blub, you already know which plate im speaking of... afterwards after disconnecting hoses transmission a/c lines just pull upwards, oh and disconnect plug to cooling fans it all comes out together ( fans, radiator, transmission cooler)
If the radiator cooling fans are not working - those are the first things I would check out. It is possible that they may be the heart of your problem, and the remainder of it (the A/C stopped working) might simply be a 'fail-safe' to protect the compressor. Start with the fuse and/or relays controlling the fans to see if they're good or they're blownl, and then the temperature sensors themselves (that are supposed to activate the fans into motion).
The Sensor for the fans is located on the upper right side of the radiator, ( the Passenger side).
The cooling fan fuse is in the fuse box under the hood, fuse 11 - 20A. For the condenser cooling fan, this is Fuse 20 - 20A.
Low coolant? Water pump not circulating coolant? System air bound? cooling fans not working? Defective radiator cap? Bad temperature gauge?
The most likely culpret is a faulty radiator fan relay or a blown fuse. Fans are intended to force air through the radiator when the car is sitting still and reaches about 200 degrees F. If you turn your A/C on the fans should operate all the time. If the fans operate for A/C you may have a faulty temperature sensor.
The wiring is not correct. It needs to be checked out by someone that knows electricity.
Honda's and in fact many cars with transverse mounted engines have electric fans to draw air across the radiator. When the radiator is hot the fan turns on until the temp drops. It's normal unless the fan stays on for a long time.

I'd check the radiator next. It might just be plugged.
