Exclamation Fans won't turn on

Hi people I have recently bought a 95 wrx import and have spent quite a bit now doing little things gearbox clutch drop links and cv boot. The car had no thermostat fitted and has had the fans bypassed to run constantly, I have disconnected the fans and fitted a stat but the fans will still not work. The only thing is ive tried reading it and it comes up with every fault going. The car will not over heat. Would this be a problem running it without the fans

Re: Fans won't turn on

in the current temps shoudl be fine, but keep an eye on the temp gauge (assumign it works). I wouldn;t advise running it for a long time though

Re: Fans won't turn on

The fans normally kick in when the temperature is around the half mark. if you have put the fan wires back in to the fan motor where they normally are and still nothing happening.

take the temperature plug of near by the alternator turn the ignition on see if the fans come on if they do you know your relays and fuses are ok

it sounds like your coolant temperature sensors then might be really clogged up with brown elements clean it or replace it they really cheap any way.

are you getting any hot air???
