Q: Cooling fan faulty

asked by on

The cooling fan on the passenger's side works now and then.

Hi! The fans on earlier Acura’s usually develop these issues. The issue is usually caused by a faulty fan control switch. But may also be caused by a faulty fan, a faulty relay, or faulty fan wiring. I strongly suggest that a well experienced technician inspect your cooling fan to pinpoint which one is causing the irregular fan function.
