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?

Check relay first

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.

Jon, just a tip, pay attention to the date of the post you are responding to. It's over a year old. You are just wasting your time. Go to "All questions" and answer the new posts. People have long since fixed the issue by now. Not trying to be a snot, just letting you know since you are a new guru.....

Actually, I know several people that will look through older questions because they are having the same issue. That's what I am currently doing as I'm trying to troubleshoot a fan issue. Thanks, Jon. I appreciate you still giving input even thought the asker may not need it. These cars are still on the road and other people have similar issues.
