Mazda Mazda6 Engine Overheating Due to Failed Cooling Fan Control Module

(43 reports)

The engine may overheat due to erratic engine cooling fan operation as a result of a faulty cooling fan control module. Replacement of the fan control module would be necessary to correct this condition. Our technicians tell us the Mazda may provide assistance with the cost of this repair.

car overheated, steam was coming out of the coolant bay, and was spewing out coolant. recall on SSP71 Fan Control Module; replaced and installed AJ51-15-15YA for free. problem solved. basically, this error makes A/C, radiator fan, and other stuff malfunction. -
No a/c when Idling, Engine heats up. Fans come on for a few seconds, but not very fast, then quits. A/C works when your driving fast enough to get airflow across the condensor. -
Fan continued to run for some time after engine shuts off. Fan comes on and winds up as soon as engine is started. During summer Air would not cool car. Dealer said the module had already been replaced twice and they would not replace it again. If they replaced it it was without my knowledge. -
Leaking coolant and overheated, my car stalled during rush hr. It is not drivable because it would overheat and the engine would shut down. Steam was coming out of my hood. Fan was not working. -

My Mazda 6 v6 2010 Model has this exact same problem. The dealership says they have to replace the entire fan assembly at a cost of $1,275 and that this is not covered under the 100,000 mile extended warranty on my certified pre-owned car. -
Complete pain, two replacement modules and who knows if that will fix it. Either fans run the forever or never because of a drained battery. -
