My accord is overheating, and noticed the cooling fans do not come on. But when I turn off the engine then the fan comes on ?? I replaced the relay in the fusebox , but it still does the same problem !! Any ideas ??
Fan stays on for about 6 min.. Since then I have replaced the relay, sensor by thermostat, and the sensor to the computer. ( with parts from a junkyard) And problem still continues. Where is the 'fan timer unit' and what does it look like ??
Engine was getting 'hot' ,and i replaced the water pump, (timing belts) and thermostat. I also flushed the system, untill I realized the cooling fan was not coming on?? How ever when I turn the engine off, (before it gets too hot ) , then the fan comes on for 5 or 6 mins.
If you pull the connector and short it with a paperclip and if the fan does not come on then the timer is bad, if the fan does come on then the Coolant switch 'A' is bad, I would want to clean the ground also. The switch is working when the motor is off.
