    Comments about Beck/Arnley Thermo Fan Switch:

    My out of town College student son has had an small overheating for quite some time.
    Trouble Isolation -
    On his last visit we were able to prove his relay good by swapping his A/C fan relay & his cooling fan relay. By turning on the A/C inside the car it forces the fan to turn on. Next, we were able to use a paper clip in the plug of this sensor to close the circuit to energize the fan. It worked and isolated the trouble to his bad fan temperature switch.

    Prep & replacement -
    We opened the petcock at the bottom of his radiator to capture his coolant into an empty water gallon jug, enabling us to recycle it back into his system after the repair. We replaced the switch (sensor) and refilled his radiator with only about half of what we captured. Started the car with the radiator cap off. Keeping an eye on the coolant, once the thermostat opened it would begin bubbling which was purging any of the air trapped in the coolant system, slowly we would add more of the original coolant. We waited until the thermostat cycled twice more, still slowly adding more coolant until we felt comfortable that all air was purged. Which was no coincidence that the coolant we recycled back into system was gone.

    Job Done>>Good Luck

        A:

        The Thermo fan switch on a 1998 Honda Civic Lx is located on the thermostat housing, which is connected to the back left part of the engine. There will be a hose connected to the thermostat housing that leads to the bottom of the radiator. The fan switch is gold colored and will have a wire connected to it. And your 1998 Honda Civic LX needs only one thermo fan switch.

    • Q:

      can you test the thermal switch?
      Asked on 2/1/2012 by erickchad from lexington

      1 answer

      • CUSTOMER CARE

        A:

        Yes, the thermal switch can be tested. Usually, a small control current runs through a thermal switch. When that switch reaches a set temperature, the coil of the fan relay is energized and the relay powers the fan until the contacts in the switch open again. To test the good functioning of such a circuit, one has to find the fan thermal switch and bridge the two contacts. A relay should then be heard clicking and the fan should run. If the fan has two speed settings, it might have a three wire connection on the motor, one ground and one +12V for each speed or it will have a two wire connector feeding a variable voltage (for example, +9V for a slower speed and +12V for a higher one, plus a ground connection). If the fan fails to run with the thermal switch contacts closed, check the wires for +12V. A fuse might be blown in the relay energizing circuit, the relay itself might have failed, etc. It is also advisable to test the thermal switch. A simple setup involves heating the switch with warm water and checking at what temperature the contacts close. Use a good thermometer strapped right to the switch for more accurate results.
