Temperature gauge doesn't move from 0 and cooling fans won't shut off.

Asked by May 16, 2016 at 09:22 AM about the 2002 Pontiac Firebird

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an 02 Pontiac Firebird with just under 40,000 original miles on it.  Upon starting the car the cooling fan or fans will kick on and will not shut off until I shut the car off.  The temperature gauge does not move and stays at 0.
I have replaced the Thermostat and the Coolant Temperature sensor but no change.    No engine light.  Please Help!  Anyone have any advice?

Have you checked all your fuses?

Probably not a fuse issue but have you replaced the fan motor relay? It could be dead shorted in the 'on' position and cause what you are seeing.
