#35 of 138 Ford Escort Cooling Fan Won't Run
Sep 19, 2007 (5:37 pm)
I have an 1992 Ford Escort wagon. The cooling fan will not come on at all. I jumped it with a hot and ground wire and it runs fine. I replaced the 2 (hi & low) speed cooling fan relays. I replaced the so call " cooling fan relay" in the under hood fuse/relay box which incidentally works with the cooling fan and the starter. I replaced the 2 pronged temp sensor and I replaced the 2 relays at the eec as well as the eec under the center console under the dash. If I disconnect the eec from the wire harness the fan comes on low. When I pull the yellow/white wire from the low side cooling fan relay the fan comes on. I'm running out of places to look. I think it may be before the eec... What device and color wire feeds the eec too tell it the a/c is on (the low fan speed is supposed come on automatically when you turn on the a/c. the high speed is turned on when the temp sensor tells the eec the engine needs cooling. Any help would be greatly appreciated... Thanks in advance

did you find out what was wrong with your car? I got in mine last night and the raido and clock quit as well as the dome light in the front and also the key lock on your keyring won't lock or unlock the doors when you press it. I was wondering if you figured out what was wrong with yours? i don't have a lighted mirror though so i don't know what happened!!!!

try this 1, take the plug off the temp sender and see if the gauge goes down, if it does then the sender is the problem if not thake the plugs off the back of the clock pod in the dash and check the wires for continuty if the wires are o.k then you need to check which wire are giving a live feed, you should only have a pink wire which is live with the ignition on, if there is any other wire giving alive feed you need to trace this wire back and then you will find your fault most escorts have a bad problem with the fuse box this can be expensive to replace but don`t buy second hand it doesn`t pay

Not really trouble shooting but simple question. Trying to change tail light, I see the two screws but how do I remove the two white plastic pieces holding it in?
#40 of 138 Electrical Problem
Sep 03, 2007 (7:24 pm)
The problem started with the radiator fan staying on with the car off. I noticed it when after not driving it for a few days, I went to use it and the battery was dead. I replaced the battery and as soon as I connected the battery the fan would come on and stay on unless I disconnected the battery. The day I was bringing it to the auto shop the fuel pump was also on with the engine off. They replaced a relay and it seemed to stop the radiator fan but not the fuel pump. They also said that the oxygen sensor was bad and they replaced that also, but when they hooked the fuel sensor up the fuel pump will stay on sometimes. They seem to think that it has something to do with the automatic start that I had installed years ago. Another problem is the service engine light is on and at times while driving the car acts like its not getting gas and hesitates or stalls at stop signs or stop lights. the car is a 1997 with 154,000 miles.

My fan also stays on sometimes. The only way to get it to shut off is to unplug the relay (in the fuse box next to the battery). Is that the fuse they replaced? Also have you had any problems with your battery light staying on even while the car is shut off?

Nov 13, 2007 (12:43 pm)
A co-worker replaced my spark plug wires. The same day I was in heavy traffic and my car really overheated. He didn't place one of the boots entirely on and it was only running on 3 cyl.'s. Now my car keeps overheating. The fan stopped working. I've replaced the relays, some electrical stuff, the switch, the entire fan assembly (fan motor included), etc...It still will NOT come on! Any suggestions would be greatly apprec.'d!
