    2012 Chevy Cruze 1.8 Cooling Fan Problems!

    Hello Cruze family so I think I’m having a common electrical issue

    My cooling fan only turns on when my A/C is on even the car has been running for
    3 hours

    Has new thermostat, fan relays , and temp sensors

    Any ideas ?

    I’m thinking it’s some type of electrical problem

    Could be one of the sensors is bad.

    This article is for a VW, but the logic is sound

    You did not mention, but is your car overheating? Or, do you think the fan should be on just because you drove so long? If the car is not overheating, then the fan does not need to be on. The electrical fans do not always run. Since you have a 2012 model, you should be able to see the coolant temperature reading from the driver information center readouts. Fan does not start until coolant temperature is around 220+.

    Thermostat operates at 220.

    Fan kick on is 230
