HIGH SPEED MOTOR COOLING FAN PROBL

1998 Lincoln Continental

Engine Cooling problem
1998 Lincoln Continental V8 Front Wheel Drive Automatic 98,291 miles

I have a 98 Lincoln continental which recently developed a problem with the cooling fan which is located right next to the radiator. Whenever the car is running the fan is turned on high and stays on high.

The owner manual said the High and Low relays were right near the power distribution box but there is no sign of those two relays. I called the local Lincoln dealership and they told me that it was not near the power distribution box but more in the center of the car near the radiator?

I was unable to locate the relay or resistor. I was wondering if this could be the problem and where that resistor or relay is? Or is this caused by something else?

Take your black cover off from the front of the engine, it holds on with velcro. There's a bracket with 1 screw/bolt that you have to remove. Just remove the bolt and it pulls away and it located on that bracket. There a cover that you have to remove. The high speed fan relay I believe is the passenger side. The high speed relay is only used when the car reaches 225 and will come on and drop the temp down to 208. The fans will come on in A/C mode in low speed and stay on until the car gets enough air to cool it down.
