Hi guys,

 

Just had a lot spent on my focus. I am still having problems with the fan kicking in.it happens when the fan setting on the knob is on the windows setting (all the way to the right) it also happens when it is sat on the drive idle, but more recently when I have the A/C on. I actually counted how long and the fan kicks in every 15 seconds. Its more embarrassing than anything.

 

I don't know much about cars but have been searching the net and told it could be a problem with a sensor on top of the engine? Any truth in that?

 

I would be very grateful for any help possible.

 

Many Thanks, Gavin.

The fan will run when the aircon is on, to draw air through the aircon condenser when the car is stationary.

When the knob is turned to the windscreen position, it turns on your aircon for faster demisting........ hence the fan comes on.

 

Its normal.

Hi. Thanks for the the reply. The problem is, is that it has never happened on any of my other focus cars I have or have had in the past?!
