Hello Bob, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Justanswer. Thank you for your question and I will assist you with your concern.Have you scanned the computer system to see if there are any fault code setting?
Okay are you able to do some testing to see if the fan failed?
Before you consider replacing any thing run through the enclosed test steps. See them in the link below. The ground for the fan is supplied by the PCM. This system will usually also set a fault code and if you can scan the system it would make it easier to narrow this down.https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/104923897/cooling%20fan%20Aug%2017.pdfSee the wiring diagram for testing reference as well.https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/104923897/cooling%20fan%20wiring%20Aug%2017.pdf
If the AC coil has fired and the clutch is not engaging then it will effect the fan. If you look at the front of the compressor are you seeing any signs of it being hot and fried?
If the fan is working you can disconnect the PCM (computer ) and turn the key on and the fan should run.
You may be on the right track if the AC compressor is not coming on. Give me a minute and I post the steps to disconnect the PCM
You can access the PCM connector on the passenger side of the engine compartment, all you need to do is disconnect it. That being said, have a look at the AC clutch first.https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/104923897/PCM%20Aug%2017.pdf
The red/yellow wire at the fan is hot at all times, the green/blue wire is hot with the key on only.
If the AC clutch is burned it could be you whole problem. The compressor should run if the system has Freon in it before the fan comes on.
The black /yellow is ground at the fan and the black /white is the signal from the PCM. If you going to test the fans then the steps I sent you are the steps you need to follow.
Yes you can check power and ground at the clutch with the AC on and if you have both and no clutch action then the clutch has failed.
These steps are the steps to check the fan, there not diagrams. The second link it the wiring diagram for testing reference. See the test steps in the link below.https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/104923897/cooling%20fan%20Aug%2017.pdf
Here is the link your needing.https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/104923897/cooling%20fan%20Aug%2017.pdf
If the fan did not spin then your correct, its fried. Im here all day . Post back with your question and we can work from there.
Is the computer system setting ant more fault codes?
One thing that comes to mind with this type of problem you are having could be a issue with the MAF (mass air flow sensor) . I would consider disconnecting the negative battery cable and then remove the MAF from the Air inlet hose and give it a good cleaning with some MAF cleaner . After you have done this start the engine and let it idle for a few minutes and then take it for drive.
