Air conditioner condenser and radiator fan stays on in 1999 honda accord

I had an accident with my car approx. 4 months ago (rear ended a pick-up truck) which resulted in the top pan being busted and radiator and condenser having to be replaced along with headlights, grille, bonnet etc. Prior to this accident my Air conditioner was working properly with the radiator and condenser fans turning on and off (cycling) properly. But after accident and having replaced all damaged parts including condenser and radiator both fans ran continuously whenever the a/c is turned on and never turns off unless i TURN OFF THE AIRCONDITIONER. However when the a/c is off the fans come on and turn off automatically as they should. I should also mention that the car operates at normal temperature and does not overheat. What do you think is causing both fans to remain continuously on whenever the Airconditioner is switched on?

It is normal (required) for the condenser fan to continuously run while the ac is operating. It is like that on almost every vehicle.

Make sure your fan is working properly. When you turn on the heater you are forcing the fan to cool the radiator. It may not be turning on automatically when it is supposed to. Let us know if this helps..

SOURCE: 2001 honda accord, air conditioner is not working,

one fan is for the a/c it will cycle on when the a/c is turned on the other fan should be linked to the temperature sensor. check your fuses if you haven't already. then check your temp sensor. i'm not sure on a honda but most newer cars have multiple sensors so you will have to find out which on is for the fan. also you need to find out if the fan is controled by a pcm as some new model cars have almost everything controled through the powertrain control module

You need to diagnose the car then let an expert work on the wiring system to correct it. This is purely an electrical fault. I tell you!

SOURCE: jump air compressor ac works replace relays same issue HONDA

the compressor may be low on freopn but, the fan problem is most likely the fan motor as it is the low temp fan and will run more often than both fans...to test see if you can switch the fan plugin to the other fan watch carefully that it does not get too hot as the second fan is a safety fan that works as high temp or when using the A\C

Radiator and condenser fans do not go off whenever ac is switched on on 1999 honda accord


The fans will likely come on with the A/C. One is to help cool the radiator when you aren't moving, and the other is for the A/C when there isn't enough airflow to cool the condenser. Both fans may continue to run even after the car is turned off.

Sounds like a micro switch problem.
the relay is staying and saying on even when off. An electric program test should fix the problem. They are small diagnostic machines that plug into a socket either under the bonnet or in/near the glove box.

Radiator fans not working .how do i know what to check and where on a 1999 honda accord ex


first thing to do is put multimeter in fan connector and check for voltage coming into fan through wire connector. If there is power chances are the electric fan motor in fan is shot. TRY STARTING FAN MANUALLY BY SPINNING THE FAN IF IT PICKS UP AND RUNS YOU NEED NEW FAN MOTOR

2005 Honda accord-air conditioner not working good and car overheating


Your car probably has two fans at the radiator, one is for the coolant and the other is for the a/c condenser. Find out which one stays on after you turn off your car after a normal trip, this fan is good. Check the fan that did not run, you may have to connect 12v directly to the connector of the non working fan, if it won't run with a direct connection, the fan motor is bad, if the fan does run, then find the fan switch and test or replace it, you can find information on testing a the Autozone.com site.

1998 Honda Accord interior ventilation fan has stopped working.


they are right the air conditioner has nothing to do with the fan running .. your air conditioner is operated by a pressure switch .when it gets low on freon it will not come on, which saves your compressor. your fan only blows the cold air the air conditioner puts in to the coils located inside your dash. which the blower then blows the air into the car.. now you are on the right track look some more you will find the round motor under that dash near the glove box and its held in there with usually 4 small bolts. and removal is easy if you can locate it.. one wire and 4 small bolts and out it comes .. you should be able to get one at a local parts store ..

Cooling fan only comes on when the AC is on. Have checked relays and fuse.


there are 2 fans 1 for the ac that only comes on when the ac is on thats normal.and the radiator fan that comes on when it reaches 160' to 180'degrees only on electric fans.u might have to reposition the wires on the fan.

Also check to make sure that both the electric fans behind the radiator/condenser assembly are running with the A/C on. You can also improve the system performance by cleaning out the A/C condenser unit. It sits in front of the radiator. With the engine running and the A/C engaged, spray water from a garden hose through all the finning of the A/C condenser for 2-4 minutes. This will clear out any dead bugs and debris on the condenser or trapped between the condenser and the radiator. Cleaning the condenser every other month will greatly increase the life of your compressor.
