2000 SL1 saturn problem

I owned a 2000 SL1 saturn for five years and just about recently when i encountered this fan issue. it happened that the fan will not come isnt functioning on the temp guage registers. Checked it and fount it very hot. checked the fuses, other Saturn parts and everything connected on it and they are fine. Heard about rewiring in some discussion sites but have no idea what's the first thing to do first.

What fan are you talking about? is it the radiator or the cooling fan...please place some details here...Anyway, would be best if you do the rewiring job...

one car i had mechanic rewire it so the rad fan always on when key on. i haven't done it myself but it can't be that tough. was cheap for mechanic to do it so i didn't bother myself.
you could also rewire it to a switch under the dash, just don't forget to turn it on!

yes the radiator fan. on the versa says RAD FAN, it looks like a fuse.
on your saturn it might say cool fan
the saturn relay fan should look like this



this is a saturn diagram, if yours looks the same, replace both fan relay fuses. I call them relay


and the fuse box is located under the hood close to the battery

if replacing the relay fuse doesn't fix it, or the fan takes too long to turn on,then I would add a fan switch and not forget to turn it on.

Does the fan come on when you turn on the AC?

Not a problem man,

A friend of mine had a 2000 pontiac granprix and the fan didn't want to come on, I replaced one relay with another relay he didn't need, I think it was the rear defrost, and the fan kicked right on.
another part you might want to check is the temperature sensor, but never seen one going bad...
A manual fan switch should take care of the fan for sure, just remember to turn it on
