The radiator fan switch is automatically switched on when the coolant reaches a set temperature and this operates the cooling fan motor. Car owners can book with our service reception when your cars cooling fan does not work.
Checking your water and oil levels regularly because it is the ideal way of helping to avoid unnecessary bills.
In modern cooling systems the fan control switch is replaced by a coolant temperature sensor. The temperature sensor is known as a thermistor and is not simply a switch. The thermistors resistance changes as the engine warms up, its resistance becomes less. As a result this variable resistance sends a signal to the ECU and hence allows the ECU to determine when the cooling fan operates. The signal that now has a lowered resistance consequently increases the current flow to the ECU and the dashboard temperature gauge.
Book your car now and our technicians will check the resistance of your vehicles thermistor. The clear advantage of a temperature sensor is that it is very accurate in detecting temperature changes consequently it is a key component in keeping your car running smoothly.
