I have just bought this car and the cooling fan isn't cutting in to cool the engine (when I think it should). It works on both speeds when straight power is supplied to it. The temp gauge sits at half when driving. At idle or after sitting traffic for some time it wont kick in until the temp is nearly in the red zone and cuts out at the L of normal on temp gauge. It has a d2 stamped temp sensor in it. Another forum showed a Ford TSB which said A3 temp sensor n cluster gauge didnt read correctly.
when the A/C is turned on the fan works and stays on (when the A/C is turned off) until temp goes to half on the gauge.
i have bought a manual for this model car and it says to test wires at the PCM but it doesn't seem I can do that without unplugging the unit.
any ideas on what to look for next?
have the same problem?
