Q: Radiator fan not working

asked by on

The left side radiator fan will not come on.

Hello. If one fan is not working and the other is, I would suspect a faulty fan. To verify that the fan is bad, check the voltage signals on the fan to determine if it’s getting power. A technician from YourMechanic can inspect the voltage for you and replace the damaged parts if necessary.
