BMW Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
when you say the fan will not shut off, can you please elaborate? what exactly does it do?
I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked..Thank you for your attention to the rating requirement..
the fan is mechanical and only engages once a certain temperature is reached. If you are not using genuine BMW OEM parts then I would suggest you try an OEM BMW unit. If the problem persists then it can only be that the car is running at a temperature that the fan is intended to engage at.
.Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
what question was that? this is what was posted: "When the latest new fan was fitted three weeks ago the fan did not run when the engine was started, however the mechanic called me to say said it came on after 5 mins and just keeps running with the engine on, he phoned a colleague for help/ideas but to no avail saying he could only think this is caused by the hot weather. The fan stays on in the winter. " - I am not sure what the question is?
