1997 Ford Contour Question: Overheats



lupete, 2.0L 4 Cylinder, Santa Ana, CA, October 16, 2010, 10:37

Cooling fan will not run unless I jumper it? Replaced sensors, still nothing. Was told it was the computer? Is there a test for that portion of the computer? Hate to buy one and have the fan still not work. I can keep the engine cool by running the AC and the other fan works fine.

    sounds like a bad fan.

    Wiring and relays are issues with these fans. There are two relays - high speed and low speed. One or both could be failed, and you may have wiring connector melting issues. Not uncommon for this vehicle.
