2005 Lincoln LS cooling fan won't come on, I had to replace…

Customer Question
2005 Lincoln LS cooling...

2005 Lincoln LS cooling fan won't come on

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your LS yourself? What have you tried so far?

I had to replace a water pump and a thermostat including the housing. All works great except fan won't come on and engine overheats after about 10 minutes

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle ever overheated? And when was it last serviced?

Yes, it's overheated a few times in the past and I service my own cars

You could have a problem with the engine cooling fan motor. Do you have a test light to check for power to the cooling fan motor?

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
