    radiator fan

    i have just bought a 02 zafira, can you tell me if it is normal on these for the radiator fan to run more or less continuosly or is there a fault with a sensor,

    it did have air con but the last owner took of the air con rad as it was knackered, any one know how to get the air con warning light on the dash to go off

    that will be linked with the air con for sure, as soon as I put the aircon on my car active the front fan comes on. It wouls appear that the previous owner did not remove it fully, botch job for sure so get an auto electrician to look at it and pay lots to get it fixed is my advice, or probably cheaper to just fix up the air con system from a scrapper

    Hi mate,

    To answer your questions.

    Your fan is link to air con and fan will come of with aircon as matter of course. However fans are only for cooling so if engine also running hot also fans come on a that point as a matter of course too.

    To remove the light you will have to get someone with tech-2 to do it or just take the bulb out.

    but the best advice i can give is to get aircon put back on from a scarp/doner car and all problems should be resolved, However you may still need tech-2 to re set

    air con system/pump around £100 for a decent one!

    The fan control module/relay is probably faulty. It is located by the radiator fan, the part is a dealer item. The “check engine” light will “light” when there is a malfunction in the engine management system. The fault code is then stored in the computer. The computer must be scanned to retrieve these stored faults to pinpoint the malfunctioning component. Because the check engine light indicates something is wrong, a trip to you neighborhood automobile service center sooner rather than later is recommended.
