the fans only starts with the a/c on or if i disconnect the coolant temperature sending unit when i reconnect the sensor the fans stop working

Asked by May 22, 2015 at 09:45 PM about the 2000 Nissan Altima GXE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

i have tested both engine cooling fans hi and low speeds work. all three relays check good. when i disconnect the coolant temperature sending unit the fans turn on and i did replace the sending unit.

1 Answer

sounds like its backwardd or something..or grounding...the sending unit is for your water temp. gauge. youre looking for the fan switch(es). my car has 2 mounted in the bottom of radiator and has a primary and secondary fan...its also an 88, but all that basically applies to most cooling systems
