(1990 Honda Accord)
in Nipomo, CA on June 07, 2014
my cars been overheating on short trips especially when idling.once I start driving the temperature goes down but as soon as I hit another light it rises quickly. So far I've tested both fans directly to battery and they seem to work fine.I take my fuses in found out the cooling fan fuse keeps blowing.also tried to check the thermostat and found out it didn't have one.What should my next step be?

Put a GOOD quality thermostat (NAPA/ O'Riellys'-NOT Advance) MAKE SURE the anti-freeze/coolant is proper mixture DON'T put just water in it!!!Check that fuses are correct amperage , check all connections for corrosion , check relay , THEN follow #1s advice if not pissed enough already! Good luck! ---HINT , even though fan spins , doesn't mean it isn't going bad creating to much current draw and blowing fuse - hence the suggestion of seeking help from someone with experience......
