Checking electric cooling fans

WARNING:
The cooling fan is controlled by engine coolant temperature and may sometimes operate even when the engine is not running.

Use extreme caution when working near the blades of the cooling fan, so that you are not injured by a rotating fan blade.

As the engine coolant temperature decreases the fan will automatically shut off.

This is a normal condition.

Checking Engine Cooling Fan

The engine cooling fan should come on automatically if the engine coolant temperature is high.
