  1. Radiator Cooling Fan

    Suggest you order a new relay and replace the malfunctioning one.If has done it once it is likely to do it again.
  2. Radiator Cooling Fan

    The bear is 100% correct as to the confusion and how my TDCi works. Thanks for the Manual number.Must be a recent publication as I.i am sure it was not available a couple of years back when we bought the Fusion. Just n update on the situation.After removing the relay from the under bonnet relay box ,the fan stopped.Reinserting the relay the fan remained stationary.Car ran normally today.So I suspect this relay is intermittently remaining engaged when power is removed.Am going to try and find the part number and will order a replacement from ford.
  3. Radiator Cooling Fan

    I have pulled the plug on the motor and the fan is now stationary. battery on charge.Fluids are fine. Not sure why you think the thermostat could be at fault.If stuck open the engine will not reach operating temperature and thsi will be reflected in a lower temp being indicated on the temp guage.If stuck closed/partially closed the temp will rise above normal levels and be indicated on the guage and this will cause the fans to come on.The guage reads normal but the fans stay after shutdown as if the engine was hot and keep running until the battery goes flat.I dont believe ECU will actually keep the fans running until the battery does go flat.Will look more in depth tomorrow.

    Good point ,however the engine was not overheating and the fan runs indefinetely after the engine is turned off,until in fact the battery is flat which takes quite a while.This evening the engine was cols and the fan slowly rotating with a flat battery.Put a jump pack across the battery and the fan speed right up again.

    By the way do you have an manual for the Fusion.I cant seem to locate one other than fro the fiesta,which does seem to be a bit different

    We do have A/C ,so the relay in the engine compartment may be the culprit,.Three relays in the box but cant tell which is for the fan as there is no legend and cant see wire colours from above .So may have to remove the relay box to check wire colours,but will have to wait for daylight now.Too cold and miserable out.Thanks again
  7. Radiator Cooling Fan

    Thanks for the suggestions.If I have pulled the incorrect relay,I will be surprised as it was the one labled for the fan.I also pulled the relays next to it as well.
  8. Radiator Cooling Fan

    Hi All, My wifes 1.6 TDci cooling fan has decided to run continuously and thus flattens the battery. I pulled the relay in the fuse box behind the glove box and that didnt stop it.I have pulled the connector from the fan motor and stopped the running for the time being. Does any one have a wiring diagram please.There is probably another relay or short somewhere.Hopefully the ECU hasnt failed..I have a Haynes fiesta manual ,but the info dosent match what I see on the the Fusion(2006). I have located a relay box just behind the battery with three relays in it,but there is no legend on the lid as to what they are for. Thanks johnw
