Fans wont turn on.

So my radiator fans aren't working and my engine/manifold is overheating. I just recently purchased and installed the relay and nothing. Anybody got any tips

Take the plug off the sensor and run a wire from one side of the plug to the other. Just a temp fix until you can get the time to fix the problem.

Re: Fans wont turn on.

Mine aren't working either but my temp gauge has never gone past half. No big deal since I mainly do highway/freeway driving and don't use AC. If you do a lot of slow city driving, traffic, idling etc. that's where the fan is actually needed. Anyhow,

Other culprits could be:

-Fan switches
-Fan motors
-Fan relay which you can cross off your list
-Check fuse just in case

Had this same problem turns out my A/C wasn't blowing very cold and was very low on Freon. I had it recharged and they have never done it since.
