Cooling fan not turning on at all

Asked by Nov 01, 2016 at 08:11 PM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Ok so my car  started overheating the
other day. The temperature of the car was
on the red area and the antifreeze started
pouring out of it... Then it started smoking.
I already tried replacing the relay and the
fuses that control the fan but it still won't
turn on... But when event I connect it
directly to the battery, it turns on. And then
I connected it back and turned on the a/c...
And it doesn't turn on... My question is...
Whenever u turn o the ac.. Does that signal
goes directly to the fan or does it need
pass by the temperature switch first... Cuz
I haven't replaced the sensor.. Do y'all
think that's the problem?

Try jumping the temperature sensor to see if the fans turn on.
