Cooling fan

I have a 1992 Ford Taurus 3.0 engine. The cooling fan has stop working. It would come on when I turn on the airconditioner but now noting. Anyone have any clues to what to do?

Fuses? Put 12volts to the fan to make sure it works. Make sure you are getting power to the relays and out of the relays. There might be a temp sensor that turns the relay on. Make sure you are getting good ground to all components. Make sure you get a hold of a GOOD wiring diagram. I have a 93 escort that had a relay go bad which stoped the fan.

Agreed. Many Fords of this vintage have a relay control module on the radiator support that goes bad. Any parts store can supply a rebuilt replacement.

Do you have 1 or 2 fans? Which fan is it? auxiliary fan does not normally function without A/C on. If it is the Aux fan check the switch in the A/C system. But it sounds more like a fan motor.

One more thing. Do you have a check engine light on condition?

one quick thing to check, with the key OFF, try to turn the fan by hand, if it's seized or very hard to turn or notchy( it should spin like three times with a good push), you found the problem, along with whatever fuse is supplying it by now.

BTW, make sure you DISCONNECT either the negative battery terminal or the fan power cable BEFORE sticking your hand anywhere near it. They can run with the engine off AND the key removed.
