dear friends, i am having the same problem edd1973 is haveing with is ford
focus, the difference is that mine is a 2002, i changed the relay that
control the cooling fan, but still overheat unless i turn on the a/c, do u
guys think i should take the car to te dealer or do u have a cheaper
I had a similar probem with a Saturn. On hot days it would heat up at idle
unless the AC was turned on (which activated the electric fan). The cause
was a faulty coolant temperature sensor, which, once I found it, was as
simple to fix as screwing out the old one and screwing in the new one. If
the relay were bad, the fan wouldn't come on with the AC.
