2012 ford fiesta engine fan is not coming on. My son noticed…

2012 ford fiesta engine...

2012 ford fiesta engine fan is not coming on. My son noticed a/c started blowing warm and later engine coolant temp light came on. I noticed the electric fan is not running. I changed the 40 amp fuse in the engine compartment fuse box with the abs fuse. fan still does not kick on?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the manual yet? Most vehicles have two fuse panels.

Yes, I don't see any other fuse on the inside box that controls the fan?

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

That's it.

checked fuses. everything works on the car, no warning lamps on, but engine fan does not run

ok, pull the relay jumper 3 to 5 on the relay plug and see if it comes on

pulled relay R5 engine cooling fan relay out of engine fuse box. placed jumper wire from 3 to 5 in the socket. still no fan when I turn engine on. with the relay out, did i need to jumper 1 to 2 also? I'm not a mechanic.

sorry for the delay, all you needed to do is jumper 3 to 5 with key on. you are putting 12 volts directly to fan.

fan does not power on, what next?
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
looking at the schematic, it looks like if I turn the ignition on and have the jumper between 3 and 5 on the fan relay, I should be able to disconnect the connector off the fan motor and check for 12-14 volts on the connector with a voltmeter. If I have power here, the blower motor is bad? correct me if I'm wrong?

fan is bad sir

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.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
