Did this video help you?

Swole-R-Us: My 95 civic dx is having the same issue, i changed the thermostat the switch tightened all hose clips and have no leaks tested the fan which works when connected directly to the battery as done in the video but fan still doesn't work on its own while connected to the regular plug and I flushed my radiator with water before changing everything to get any gunk out which some did but fan still wont cut on, any other suggestions? My top radiator hose gets hot and the bottom remains cold which I believe is normal, I don't believe it my head gasket because I don't see any thing on the dipstick when inspecting closely, smh this is getting annoying any way temp Guage goes to red line now when driving any other checks i should do? I think I've Done 98% so far

Gallitopcr8: I did all this also replaced thermostat and tps and fan still not turning on by itself...any ideas? 

Mark Gardham: Thanks for the video man, helped me out a treat! Now gonna grab a paperclip and test this relay!

Larry brin: good video! but shorting the sensor with a paper clip means "ultra high temp" which triggers the high relay. if your low relay is bad you will get a false idea that it is working. meed to add the correct resistence which will vary for every car. a better test is to turn car on, list if fan turn on on 1/2 mark, and listen if it runs faster after 3/4 mark. you can know if low relay is bad also if your temp gauge blows past half mark but never past the 3/4 mark... usually. nothing is 100% sure in cars :)

krnhaechan30: Great videos! Easiest way to troubleshoot your problems. Glad mine is a simple fix! Thanks man.

Sia Xiong: When I put the paper clip in the plug turn the key my fan won't come on till I touch ground somewhere then it comes it..wat does that mean 

social seahawks fan: Why would the fan work ONLY when the car is running but shuts down immediately when turning the ignition off? I know it used to run for a few minutes after turning off the ignition but it recenty stopped working that way which makes no sense especially since its been hot this summer.

Armando Soriano: My fans wont come on at all it keeps on overheating I don't wanna drive it or else my car will be trash I need help I change the thermostat and nothing I think the fans are no good and I need to buy them new one thing for sure I have a lot of oil leaking in my motor like in the bottom of it idk why 

Impending Lee: Great video!

Robert Paradiso: Great vid Good lookin, thx

t kelly: hey, nice video! It really helped me with my fan problem on my 94 civic. Thanks!

otsb506: This was a very well done video and showed exactly all the steps in order and in a way that was easy for me to understand! Thank you very much! Bob

Jonathan Ramirez: Hey Snag, I bought a '96 firebird and the previous owner has a toggle switch installed that turns the fans on and off manually, not automatically. I then found out there was no thermostat in the firebird. I bought it because it passed smog, but I just want the fans to turn on automatically. Why did the previous owner do this and how can i make the fans automatically kick in?

Ross Gordon Wensor: Thanks heaps, Really helpful

kevykev38: If the fan runs by jumping the two wires going to the fan switch sensor? It is showing the relay and harness in place is working properly. So it would point to a problem with the thermostat (even if new) or even a bad thermo Switch. ( even if new). Test both. Out of the car with boiling water and a multimeter on the thermo switch. Testing the thermostat in boiling water you should see it open.

Alvaro Barquin: +1 !! You saved me a lot of time and money on a garage!! Thanks a lot for posting this video.

riki Ramirez: I replaced everything and my fan still wont come on so i just have a wire to keep it on with the ignition but i dont wanna keep it like that :/

99soonerstang: I tested everything like you did and replaced the thermostat and the switch but it keeps trying to overheat, I have fluid movement through the radiator and I had my fan kick on after changing the parts but now it's not coming on while I drive any suggestions??

norwegcat: Excellent step by step troubleshooting video! Nice job!

cafesoul Kafesoul: I was told that the Cooling Fan switch is located on the radiator itself, and that the cooling fan switch next to the thermostat is to keep the temperature gauge inside the car's dashboard working. I have already replaced the fan, relay, and cooling fan switch (attached to the radiator--since the temperature gauge is working). The fan still does not turn on. Any suggestions?

tubejim101: Great video

Christopher Davis: Thanks for the awesome vid. U saved me lots of time and money!!

Selwyn Robles: This was a helpful video. I encountered different problem with my radiator fan. when a/c is on the fan is functioning at low speed and fan speed doesn't change even the temperature gauge keeps high which affects the aircondition, but when the a/c is off , the fan will function in high speed when it reached the mid temperature. I am wondering what to be changed or to be repaired. hope you help me.

Kent Jackson: What's the torque setting for radiator fan switch? 

Seth Buxbaum: it worked on my acrua tl and i was pulling my hair out, thanx alot man.

ThePenguinCompound: Nice!!

Tino Lopez: Thx man my fan relay was my problem for my 91 integra..

ImAdapt73: Narrow screen? WTH?

Osvaldo Cardona: how would you check the other relays? 

Kelvin Feliciano: You are not shorting nothing out, you are sending power to the coil inside the relay. kid

Mars Flee: Thank you! You fixed my problem.

camarobossman: great video you are the man. you really helped me understand a lot about how all this stuff works

Kent Jackson: Was the car on when u connected the alligator clips to battery to check the fan?

ghostrider993: Great video....it worked for fixing my 97 Honda Civic...Thanks

BboyV3n0m: nice video!

Glenny Glenn: Good stuff brah!

Feedbacker27: Good video and good English dude. Don't lose your accent, if you do, you lose your uniqueness and with that the ladies too!

Nataly S: Hi! I have a question, my car needs the connector, but can't seem to find it new. Do you know where I can get it? or does it come when you buy the switch. Maybe a dumb question to those who know, but I really don't know lol. Thank you!

Abu ALI: NICE 

oldskool funk: Great Video SnagEasy, Don't worry about the haters that's never going to stop just keep on doing what your doing, the haters have personal issues and cant see past their negativity and DO NOT GET IT, so keep moving forward and let the haters make you better bro Great Job.

Clay Natvig: sometimes my fan comes on and sometimes it won't causing my car to overheat, does that mean that the thermostat is probably bad? if the relay is bad would it not come on at all??

Tina Navarro: Thank you!

Slim: Thank you Sir, your videos helped me a lot. Thanks again.

Christopher neita: very very good

MrKoolaidman909: its good to replace yur coolant fan switch and thermostat n all but why not just wire yur fan direct to ignition ... i mean thats what i do to all my cars ... i wire my stock or aftermarket stereo head units directly to power n how yu do that is cut the power n ignition wire on the head unit n wire them together n wire them 2 to the power wire of the dash harness ... n result of that ... yu have the ignition wire from the dash harness side just chilling there ... so what i do is i cut / splice n extend just the positive wire of the cooling fan ... bring it thru the fire wall the way yu would a 4 gauge for a sub system ... and wire it to that ignition wire ... that way yur fan is on at all times ... the moment yu turn to ignition with yur key ... now in doing it ... yu wont even need yur key in the ignion to turn the radio on yu just press the power button n its on ... that way yu wont have to have yur fan on wile yu listen to the stereo when yur car is off ... do this to all my cars ... old n new ... keeps under the hood cool at all times 

P B: Thanks for this video. It is a big help for me to locate the fan relay.

Cristobal Rodriguez: Thanks for your video, it save me a lot of time and money. I found out that my cooling fan switch was bad, even before troubleshooting I was thinking was the radiator fan motor. ThAnks

Josh Long: My engine cooling fan is staying on until the car battery dies over night and I don't know how to fix this
