Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site.

Does the radiator fan come on when the temp rises at a stop?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
No sure
Expert:  Jerry replied 2 months ago.

That would be the first thing to check. Are any trouble codes set?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
No alert lights showing
Expert:  Jerry replied 2 months ago.

I see, thanks. You will want to see if the radiator fan does work and also the #19 and #22 fuses in the under hood fuse block.

Okay any thing else to check

Let me just say that any money that you paid, or if you have a subscription, that money stays in your account until the answers are rated, (positive) regardless of how fast or how long it may take to get finished. You can FOLLOW UP AT ANYTIME, even after rating.

You will also want to check the level of the coolant and that it is circulating, (radiator is equally warm in the core) and that there are no leaks in the system, thanks
