My neices 1995 Taurus GL 3.8, V6 overheats. The cooling fan will not
come on, even with the A/C on. The engine service light does not come.
However, I noticed that if I disconnect the Coolant Temperature Sensor,
the fan comes on and it stops overheating and of course the engine
service light comes on. I checked the sensor with an ohmeter as the
engine warms up and it decreased fm about 27Kohm to about 5kohm 0r less
before I disconnected it, which seems like it's at least working,
although I don't know exactly how low the resistance should be for it to
the fan to come on. Also' I cannot find an electrical diagram of this
particular cars circuit. If anyone out there Knows what the resistace
should be to cause the fan to come on or other info to help I would
surely appreciate it. Mac
Three - one to the computer, one to the fan, and one to the temp guage
on the dash. Four if there is one just past the air filter as an input
to mass calculation, but not sure if the tauri use speed density like
the old escorts did.
When I disconnect the sensor the fan comes on......thought that might
eliminate the relay unless it has more than one relay. I really need a
diagram that shows all of this but so far only found diagrams that
only show a typical layout which is not near what we have here. Also
a pictorial would hep a lot.
The cooling fan relay is in the CCRM above the top left (driver) side of the
radiator, under the plactic shroud. I'm pretty sure the fan is controlled by the
Pulling the ECT connector and engaging the fan tells you that the fan and relay
ok. This may be a 2 speed system, I don't remember. There would be a resistor
somewhere on the fan shroud,left side. You will need a wiring diagram.
Here's a link to a paper manual on Ebay:
Andt the EVTM to go with it (the one you need):
And here's one for the CD. It contains all of the manuals for your car, and all
1995 Ford lines. Much better deal:
