Ford escort cooling fan will not turn on.


Asked by Aug 19, 2014 at 08:31 PM about the 1995 Ford Escort 2 Dr LX Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Okay. I have replaced the fuse,
tested the fan itself and works,
replaced the coolant temp sensor,
it's a brand new radiator, but when I
plug the fan into the car, the fan will
NOT turn on. Kept it on and it just
overheats. Why is that fan not
coming on? The sensor is brand new.
BrNd new relay/fuse, brand new
radiator, fan motor is COMPLETELY
FINE. WHAT is gods name can it be?
Please for the love if god someone
help me. Explain it that I can figure
this out well. Pictures, diagrams,
anything that will help me. I am in
shock of question of this problem
and I am in desperate need of this

Hello i have the same problem fan works, new switch , yet car still overheats as the radiator fan does not come on even though the water is boiling. Any ideas as to what was meant by the sendor behind coolant sensor. Cheers
