Radiator Cooling Fan Does Not Come On in My Car

Reader Question Hello Austin and thanks for the tips however I have a problem my engine is overheating I check the fluids they are ok no leaks but my fuses for my radiator fans are blown I change them and they keep blowing I am stuck can you help me on this?

Hey there

My first guess would be that you probably have a bad cooling fan motor. If the motor is “locked up” or drawing too much current, because it is worn out, the fuse will blow to prevent a fire in the wiring.

Austin, you were right, the fan motor was totally seized up. I replaced it and things are back to normal now. Thanks!!!
