Coolant fan does not come on in my 1991 honda accord lx until I turn on my a/c and then my condenser fan fuse blows and my coolant fan kicks on.I ran a jumper from battery to each and they both work. Could it be my relay?
Do you

Relays would seldom short out causing the fuse to blow. You need to test the circuit between relay to the condenser fan. It could be a failing condenser fan that is having a high resistant. Try running the condenser fan with a fused wire to test if the fuse blows.

Ok. Im just now able to get back on the car. Thats a very good idea by the way. Thank you for ur response. I did what u had suggested and it didnt blow the fuse but it also didnt turn the fan. After looking closer, it would try to spin but seemed in a bind so I assumed the motor was bad. I went ahead and changed the condenser fan motor and now that part of the problem seems to be fixed, meaning when I turn on the a/c just the condenser fan comes on. Now im at another problem. My radiator(coolant) fan is not coming on at all.I know the fan works, did the jumper wire thing, but after car heats up it dont come on. I believe there is a switch to tell the fan to turn on at the thermostat housing when the car is running and another switch at the housing at the end of the upper radiator hose to tell it to come on when the car is off. If needed of course. My head tells me it would be to odd for both switches to go out at the same time so im guessing that it would be some type of coolant temperature sensor? Would that be a safe assumption? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
