How can this issue be isolated to relay or fan? Could this be a failing fuel pump,coolant temperature sensor or what? Please help me September 26, 2016 Followup from the Pelican Staff: I can't help without knowing what is missing from the system when you are trying to start it. Check spark, fuel injector pulse and fuel pressure, volume, quality and engine compression. Oh also added a leak stop chemical and prior to heat worked. I also bought gasket making material. Then use a wiring diagram to trace the compressor circuit to the control or relay. I had the fan tested and that works, but doesn't kick on, ever. I have not checked the hoses going into heater core, but will next time.
April 14, 2019 Followup from the Pelican Staff: I can't offer any helpful insight without knowing what is missing from the system when you are trying to start it. I too own one, I've changed my own fluid not to bad of a job. You'll need to fix it or seal that hose so you can pressure test the cooling system. March 24, 2016 Followup from the Pelican Staff: The problem may be related to a bad head gasket. Recycle parts, packaging and fluids when possible.
Listen for an audible click to confirm each locking tab properly seats. How ever if i let it sit for 30 minutes to a couple of hours it takes some cranking to fire up will sometimes kick when cranking but takes much longer than is normal When it runing it runs, it runs fine, smooth, good power. It has been pretty hot here in Chicago the last few days, so I did expect the fan to be working overtime, but just this morning it threw a P1111 code. Usually they are not available separately. You have to identify that item.
Any ideas what can cause this issue and how to fix it? Protect your eyes, hands and body from fluids, dust and debris while working on your vehicle. After driving a bit the top hose seems slightly hotter than lower. Will order from here again for sure. Leaving dirt behind can lead to sealing issues. I have replaced this sensor and soon after found a leak at the lower radiator hose.
The water pump and thermostat were changed a few months ago. I don;t know hat autozone sells, so I can;t offer advice there. The sizes of the nuts and bolts we give may be different from what you have, so be prepared with different size sockets and wrenches. I have done some disgnosis and the radiotor outlet temp sensor is said to be faulty, reading -46 degree celcius when the engine is at around 75 degree celcius. January 5, 2016 Followup from the Pelican Staff: If you have hot hoses going into the heater core, and cold coming out, there is likely a restriction. I also noticed fan didnt come on.
Could the under spray have done something to the coolant temperature sensor or any other sensor? A fan not turning on? What else could be the problem? If you notice 122 degrees or -40 it is very likely that you have a bad sensor. You can check this using a scan tool. The only problem according to him is no power to the compressor. I replaced the crank sensor and still nothing was solved. An easy way to check to make sure you have the right sensor. When at operating temp after driving to work, if i turn it off and then try to restart, it will start right up.
November 13, 2014 Followup from the Pelican Staff: There will be one in the radiator hose and the engine I think. Once you locate the failing item, check if it is losing power, ground or the signal to activate. Are they go straight to ecu or somewhere else becouse i connect sensor straight to ecu and its showing same -48 degrees. Especially if you can see correct temp on gauge. I replaced the o-ring and when I pulled the clip off it flew and I can't find out where it went December 19, 2016 Followup from the Pelican Staff: Good question. The sensor can also leak coolant from the sensor sealing O-ring. Lower radiator hose is cold to touch upper hose is hot.
Vehicle models change and evolve, as they grow older, so the vehicle shown in our illustrations may vary slightly from yours. Do you think the thermostat may be stuck now. If the o-ring remains in the lower hose, the new sensor will not seal and you will have a coolant leak. The new M3 aka 2008 can achieve a top speed of 203 mph however once it has been deli … mited. March 18, 2017 Followup from the Pelican Staff: Sounds like you have a coolant flow issue.
If the system will not hold pressure and there are no external leaks the head gasket may be faulty. The power steering reservoir is mounted low in the engine bay on the drivers side. They can figure out what part or repair kit you need. What do I do next? New: 2000 ohms Old: 7 kohms That's how I figured out how to test it. If I disconnect the radiator outlet temperature sensor electrical connector, the fan will turn on, but doesn't work properly June 28, 2016 Followup from the Pelican Staff: I bet you have air trapped in the cooling system.
This is the ideal location to get accurate pressure and temperature measurements, and our block provides a reliable and clean setup. What are high and lo pressures when the compressor is on? February 15, 2016 Very helpful tech instruction led to the right repair I couldn't get the sensor our and per Pelican's recommendation in the tech instruction, I ended up replacing the hose and sensor. Got it replaced and coolant bleed and all is well. That would be equivalent of driving through a puddle. Have cleaned every connection I can find. The manual says its ok to top off with a.
