I am not able to get my Cooling fan to kick on, I think it may be a bad module since the relays and harness look fine no burn marks, Compressor to a/c kicks on at long higher rpm. My question is the loping idle from 500-1000 rpms, is that because the fan motor is not engaging? the ac blows nice and cold when it does but for most part it stays off until on free way. Liek I said i just wanna make sure im looking the right directions with the issue being the cooling fan not running.

2006 Mercury Grand Marquis

thanks josh

The RPMs usually drop when the compressor comes on. The fan modules are known to fail on these cars. I replaced mines recently. I ended up buying a whole new fan with module from RockAuto. While I was at the junkyard, I also grabbed just the module from another CVPI to have on hand.

I just had to do mine today. You can test the fan if you can hook up some jumper wires from one plug to the other. If you do that and the fan comes on it's definitely the module.

Also I think this belongs in the powertrain forum.
