Hi have you done a coolant flush lately because you might have a blocked coolant channel or something some kind of blockage in the system that's making it overflow where It can't go all the way through the system could be a bad water pump what's the diagnostic of your system what's your maintenance record on it

The problem is with the radiator cooling fan circuit (P1651) and the low coolant circuit (P1620). Sounds like the cooling fan isn't coming on like it should and the engine is overheating. HTH. -Jim

OK I think there is a way you can bypass the fused circuit & have the fan run all the time when the key is turned on put you would have top look for the details online. Have you ever changed your thermostat Could be bad or installed backwards plus check your fuses & your wiring harness for dirty contacts etc. Paul
