Asked by Dec 02, 2011 at 06:26 PM about the 1997 Ford Thunderbird LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I've tried everything (for months)related to the fuel intake & pressure, from MAF sensors to fuel pump, Key on & off repeatedly, etc.  However, I finally figured out that the fan is the key. Hot or cold motor doesn't matter. It simply will not start until that fan is done running.

1 Answer

its not the fan causeing your car not to start,I got 3 T-Bird Super Coupe,s,one acted the same way,was a bad starter,the fans always come on when keyswitch is turned on,they on low speed,that part is normal.
