Q: Fans not working, and car overheats

asked by on

The fans are not working, and the car overheats when it's not moving. The air conditioning is not getting cold.

If your fans are not coming on, that is likely why the vehicle is overheating when still. This may or may not be related to the air conditioning not functioning correctly. I would recommend having a professional technician, such as one from YourMechanic, diagnose the overheating issue so that the proper repair can be made.
