Question High speed fan ?

Hi Everyone,

This only happens in the morning. When the temperature gauge gets to the 1/4 mark from the bottom (Cold) the high speed fan kicks on is this normal?

Again only in the am the temp gauge goes above the center mark and I pull over then restart, let the car rest 5 min then restart then temp gauge back to normal (below the center mark)

New thermostat, radiator hoses, coolant flush by the dealer, rad fan only 3 yrs old.


Any suggestions?

Thank you

i would suggest you manually put in a temperature gauge to see if it matches the temperature gauge you on on the dash. It might be out of calibration. Have you tried resetting the Instrument Cluster? Post if you need instructions on how to do it.

"HERES HOW IT WORKS:
1) Put the key in the ignition.
2) Hold down the trip odometer reset button.
3) While holding the trip button, turn the key to ON, and within 5 seconds the test should begin, and it will stop automatically when all the checks have completed."

Mine does the same thing, only in the morning than it cuts on normal the rest of the time. It has been happening since I put the new fan in. I thought it might have something to do with the Dorman brand fan assembly . I don't have any problems with overheating at all. The fan does drag down the RPM about a hundred rpm when it kicks on. It comes on about 1/4 mark and stays on for less than a minute, goes off and comes back on at about 1/2 as it should.

Does your temperature gauge needle start at the hot mark and end at the cold mark as shown in the video?

Maybe a bent pin connector in the plug? I'd go back and look at it.

Or the plug is not in all the way. When I got my first new Dorman radiator fan I could not get it to fit all the way in. I replaced it with the original plug from the original radiator fan. On the second new Dorman radiator fan I found one of the pins was in too deep in the plug and would not make contact. I also replaced it with the original radiator plug. The original radiator plug also has a seal on it that the Dorman radiator plug does not have and it keeps the moister and water out of the plug.
