Relay and fuse diagram for 2001 Saturn SL

In the engine compartment fuse junction box its the fourth relay,you cant miss it, The fan fuse is the big 30 amp fuse.The cooling fan should come on when the air conditioning switch is activated,Your problem you are dealing with is common on Saturn the cooling fan never comes on.And you have to use the air condition system just to turn the fan on.Heres a way to trouble shoot the fan if you cant find the relay for the fan or you found the relay theres is two big relays one is the cooling fan.The other is the air pump ,take the cover off the relay and expose the mechanism,get a non conductive tool a toothpick will work fine collapse the relay so it make contact with the key on engine off make the relay make contact the fan should come on ,if it doesnt and you see spark(little spark)as you close the relay this tell you the power works replace the fan..if the fan comes on swap the relay.

Insufficient egr flow. Cooling fan does not run

Is your AC system charged and working? I believe the pcm will not activate the fan unless the AC system is operational.

My saturn over heats only when i have the ac off

Check for a fuse that is blown first.Then look for a cooling fan relay.Check the relay to see if it will turn on the fan,by using a test light.Clip the end on the test light to a good ground,maybe the ground on the battery.While the car is running,pull the fan relay out just a little so you can touch the prongs on the relay with the test light pointed end.When you touch the right prong,the fan will come on.The test light is actually grounding the relay.This is the safe way to activate the relay without damaging the relay circuit.If the relay clicks,and the fan comes on,replace the coolant sensor.If the fan does not come on,and the relay clicks,then run a hot wire to the positive wire on the fan to see if it will work.If you don`t get the fan to run that way,and you are sure the fan is hooked up correctly,then replace the cooling fan.If you cannot get the relay to click,and the fan is good(because you have checked it)replace the relay.If I can help,let me know.

98 Saturn SL AC/cooling fan will NOT work

Do not let this car over heat a blown head gasket will ensue. Locate and replace the fan relay, if that doesn't fix the problem unplug fan and use jumper wires to ground the plug then feed power to the positive side of plug to check fan, if that doesn't work replace the coolant temperature sensor located somewhere near the intake manifold or thermostat housing area.

Radiator fan will not run but motor is good

follow the wires coming off the fan they will lead you to the relay from that the relay will run to the temp sensor which trips the relay for the fan
