Brava heating problems

Hey all

Newbie here , i'm having problems with my car over heating when sat idle in traffic , it's ok for about 20 mins then over heats and temp gauge needle goes red at the top

no one really seems to know the problem but a mechanic suggested that the fan isn't kicking in? if this is the case what could be causing it not to kick in? and if its not the fan motor what is it?


any help please guys???

Neil

Re: Brava heating problems

fan will not turn on due to bad relay, temperature sensor or due to bad wire/contacts.

On my car bravo SX100 if I disconnect temperature sensor FAN will turn on itself, when the ignition is turned on (ignition on or off, not realy remember )

Try to disconnect temperature sensor,
if no, locate and check FAN relay
