Nissan Maxima Service and Repair Manual: Cooling fan

Description

The ECM controls the cooling fan corresponding to the vehicle speed, engine coolant temperature, refrigerant pressure, and air conditioner ON signal. The control system has 4-step control [HIGH/MIDDLE/LOW/OFF].

COOLING FAN MOTOR

The cooling fan operates at each speed when the current flows in the cooling fan motor as per the following.

Nissan Maxima. COOLING FAN MOTOR

The cooling fan operates at low (LOW) speed when cooling fan motors-1 and -2 are circuited in series under the middle speed condition.

Component Function Ch

1.CHECK COOLING FAN FUNCTION

With CONSULT

  1. Turn ignition switch ON.
  2. Perform "COOLING FAN" in "ACTIVE TEST" mode with CONSULT.
  3. Check that cooling fan speed varies according to the percentage.

Without CONSULT

  1. Perform IPDM E/R auto active test and check cooling fan motors operation, refer to PCS-11, "Diagnosis Description".
  2. Check that cooling fan operates.

Diagnosis Procedure

1.CHECK COOLING FAN RELAY POWER SUPPLY CIRCUIT
