    My right side fan comes on whenever the thermostat gets to I think about 200 but the left side never seems to come on. Should I be worried? How to diagnose?

    Turn the airconditioning on and see if it comes on.
     
  3. I had the same problem. It ended up being the thermoswitch. Each fan has a seperate one. The left side is supposed to come on first, then the right side.

    I think I have the same problem, frequent starts of the left fan. How much does the thermoswitch cost to replace ?
     
  6. I remeber it being right around $150. Realley easy to replace. The parts guy said he sold quite a few of them in the past. The right fan should come on at a higher temp or anytime the AC is on. The left fan should come on first (right around 185-190 degrees f.). The right fan should come on around 200 degrees F.

    I've had the same problem twice. First time, it was the LH Radiator
    switch, 2nd time it was the LH Radiator fuse which is located in the
    passenger footwell fuse box. I live in Houston, and it is my opinion that
    the cooling system is a tad weak for this climate.
