Hi Im David and I see the previous tech has opted out. when you turn the ac on does the cooling fan automatically come on?

Expert:  david craig replied 3 months ago.

hello????????????

Expert:  rpmdiag replied 3 months ago.

Hi, I'm Ron and I will try to assist you today. Sorry for all the confusion.

The fans is located in back of the radiator and it is electric. The fan should come on when you turn on the AC.

The fan control module is the most likely cause if it doesn't work. It won't send power to the fan.

If there is power going to the fan from he module and it still doesn't work, then the fan is bad. The module may be an integral part of the fan too, so you would replace the complete unit.

Thanks again and please remember to rate me 5 stars and keep this link in case you need me again later on.
