Only one fan on radiator is working

Asked by Jun 23, 2015 at 09:07 AM about the 2004 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Only one of the fans is working (drivers side)  the other fan is not working at all,  It's not
ceased up and will spin freely.  It has over 180,000 miles and i've never had any
problems.  Should I change the whole fan assy?  and would that make it the easy route to
make sure both fans are up and running for the summer.

check the fuses and relays. if they are good, unplug the fan and put a 12v jumper wire from the battery to it and see if it works. then you will know if it is the fan.

The fan is wired in series, so if the first fan is getting power the second should as well. Sounds like the fan assembly needs to be replaced. about $125.00 for the fan assembly and a few hours to do it yourself...

The second fan is controlled by the a/c switch and a thermostat. It is used for extra cooling when you are running your a/c. I would still check all the fuses and relays, and also test the fan itself. If the fan runs with the jumper wire, then your problem is elsewhere.
