Toyota Camry 2004 radiator cooling fan only runs a few seconds while AC is on.

Asked by Peng Mar 16, 2019 at 01:34 PM about the 2004 Toyota Camry XLE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It's toyota camry 2004 XLE 4 cylinder. I think it has a radiator cooling fan issue.
If I turn on the AC, the fan starts for a few seconds and stops, then after about
30s, it starts a few seconds and stops again, then on and on. Last summer the
starter got burned and replaced, and I think it's the cooling fan issue caused the
starter overheat. Not sure you have any idea what might be wrong.

Those two are not even related. It sounds like the AC system is low on 134A and is low pressure cycling, have the AC system checked, both low and high pressures and make sure it is a complete check not one of speedy service types. A lot of starter overheats are due to poor power and ground supplies and improper shielding.

My car's AC does not seem to have a problem. It blows sound coldness in summer and hotness in winter. What I mean my problem is the radiator fan not running consistently. I ran my car for 30 mins. When I stop and keep the engine on, I opened the hood and always find the fan is not running.
