Hello and welcome to justanswer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I can assist you with this.

 

Do the radiator fans come on when you turn the a/c on? Do you have a volt meter?

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
no the "normal" cooling fan operates, but the high speed fan doesn't kick on

So you do or don't have a volt meter?

 

What about with the a/c on. Does either the large and/or small fan run?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
yes I do
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
the Yes I do referred to the Volt meter I have one. When I put the A/C button (in dash) on nothing imediately comes on (as in Fords etc) the normal cooling fan continues to operate.
Ok, good, but I need to know specifically, when you turn the a/c on and off if either fan comes on and off with the a/c button?

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
