My '03 Taurus SEL has the electronic ATC. It is inferior in function to the
'97 Sable I had peviously owned. I am aware that the Sable in 1997 had a
sensor on the dash for sun load, and the lack of the sun sensor on the 2003
would account for getting a face full of cool air on cold days when the sun
in warm, but my question this time is not related to that.
When the outside temp is in the range of about 25 to 35, the electric
cooling fans on the engine turn on and turn off very frequently. It is
easily noticed when sitting at idle. I am not running the defroster, just
That 1997 Sable never did this. This is disappointing since I selected the
higher priced SEL just to get the ATC that worked so well on the 1997.
Does anybody know if this cooling fan behavior is to be expected, or id
there a fixable defect??
