Radiator motor fan/Condenser Fan/Relay/ Starter/Battery/Dashboard - 1999 Prelude Auto

I just had the radiator changed I just have a few questions is the condenser fan suppose to run at the same time as the radiator motor fan? because they both turn on at the same time even with the A/C off takes maybe half hour before it kicks in and only runs maybe 1min then shuts off and comes back on later just want to know if that is normal.

Also my dashboard gets a lot of condensation in it starts fogging up? and water starts dripping under the car?

I also have a new problem sometimes it starts and sometimes not I hear one click sound even if its hot or cold same problem my friend thinks its the starter but just want to be sure any other ideas? I think the battery is okay I even tried to jump it same things only hear one click???...

Yeah the condesnor fan will come on when the temp in the radiator needs to be cooled down. And it will stay on if your a/c is on.
As for the conensation if its an abnormal amount as your saying it probably is then check the seals around your car. Window jams, door jams, seals between fire wall bla bla bla. See if you can't keep the water out. If its coming from the the a/c and from the vents then check those seals.
And yes its a starter problem. But not the starter itself its actually your relay. You may be able to replace the relay and not have to buy a starter. But most of the time you need to buy the starter to get the new relay.

No water getting inside the dashboard just very cold and fogs up the water drips from under the car when the a/c is on maybe normal? the relay was just changed for the motor fan so its working now are you refering to the starter relay?

^^^ water under ur car is normal with the a/c. Kinda like the old wondow a/c units ina house how they drip water/condensation from the humidity outside. And yes I'm refering to the starters relay.....

Re: Radiator motor fan/Condenser Fan/Relay/ Starter/Battery/Dashboard - 1999 Prelude

I have 94 prelude and my condenser fan does not turn on when the ac button is on (green light on) but does turn on when in idle for a bit. My fan motor was going out and fan was wobbly so I got a new one and still does the same thing. My ac compressor turns on only when my condenser fan is on so I'm getting hot air. My radiator fan works properly and car has not been over heating. When the temp goes up the condenser fan kicks on to help cool it down to normal temp and that's when the ac compressor gets power and I get cold air. I just can't figure out why my condenser fan't stay on when the ac is on so it get power to my compressor. Could the bad condenser fan cause the ac relay to work to hard and mess up the relay? When I had a family member look at it he said my relay was getting hot.
