*help!* Engine Fan Not Working?


Recommended Posts


I have recently purchased a 2011 Ford Fiesta Zetec.

The other night I was sat in some traffic which was moving every 5 minutes or so, or rolling forward. My temperature light came on but I did not hear my engine fan come on?

The light only went out once I got moving again doing normal speed (30mph).

While cleaning my car today I turnt the engine on and let it run to see if it would come on again - I had it running for at least 30-40 minutes - yet the light never come on, but neither did the fan.

***Please help!***

Could it of been a one off thing?

Does the car temp need to be a certain level before the fan comes on?

Could my fan simply just not be working? If so, how can I resolve this?

Kind Regards,

if your car has aircon, open bonnet , start engine, switch aircon on and see if cooling fan runs, aircon uses same fan.

but as diesel pig says, take it back where you bought it from and get them to check it out.
