1999 Toyota Camry 2.2 Coolant fan isn't coming on.

Asked by Mar 30, 2014 at 04:38 PM about the 1999 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The car has 205k miles on it.  I noticed that the coolant wasn't circulating so i replaced the
ECT sensor, that got the coolant to circulate.  However, after awhile of short driving, the
car would overheat again.  I noticed, while the car was parked and running, that the
coolant fan wasn't coming on.  Is is commonly a relay issue or should i just chuck out the
fan?

Unplug the fan and run a jumper wire from the battery to it. If it comes on, you know the fan is good. If fan is good, replace the relay. If that doesn't seem to work, replace the temp sensor.

Easy to fix take the wire off the switch location is on the the onstage housing upper hose.one wire switch take unplug and ground it on engine while key is on position if the fan come on the switch is bad if nothing happens the relay is bad or if it stays on the relay is bad Two fan one ac fan on when ac is on engine fan is run buy switch
