2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer I6 suddenly began overheating at idle. Parts replaced within the last 2 months: Fan clutch, Tstat, radiator, radiator cap

How about the water pump ? Who replaced the parts ? A qualified repair shop ? Were codes checked ?
The PCM controls the electro-viscous fan clutch engagement. The PCM regulates a 12-volt pulse width modulated signal (PWM) to the cooling fan relay. The PWM signal determines the ON time of the relay. As the commanded state of the fan clutch increases, so does the ON time of the relay. This ON time directly effects the amount of time the solenoid, which is internal to the fan clutch, is energized. When the solenoid in the fan clutch is energized, it opens the spring loaded valve and allows fluid to flow from the storage chamber to the fluid coupling of the cooling fan clutch, increasing the fan speed. When the solenoid is de-energized, the spring loaded valve closes, and blocks the path of the fluid to the fluid coupling of the fan clutch, reducing fan speed.
The fan has the ability to create a feedback signal, so the PCM has an actual fan speed input. This is done with a hall effect sensor internal to the fan clutch. The PCM supplies a 5-volt reference and a low reference to the hall effect sensor. The hall effect sensor returns a signal pulse through the cooling fan speed signal circuit in response to the relucktor track passing by the magnetic field of the hall effect sensor.
Was electrical tested before fan clutch was replaced !

How do i know my fan clutch is gone in my 2004 isuzu ascender

Fan clutch failures are most noticeable by
overheating at stop signs
in slow moving traffic
at high rpms with slow motion ( up hills ,cross country
pulling heavy loads at low speeds
reversing after travelling at speed ( coming home and backing into the yard)
on initial start up there is no fan noise that dies off after a few minutes
with the engine hot and idling , the fan can be easily stopped or spun backwards
using a light type revs counter and reflective tap on the fan and the crankshaft pulley at 2500 engine rpms the fan should be doing around 2000rpms
basically any situation where the fan is required to provide volume air flow through the radiator when the vehicle speed is sufficient to do it.

Where does fan speed sensor go in 2004 trailblazer

If you're talking about the fan behind the radiator, the speed sensor is built into the fan clutch assembly.
If you're talking about the fan that moves air inside the cabin, there is no speed sensor for that.

Whenever I turned on the air condition in my Ford Explorer 2006, after few second the radiator Fan start running very frequently on high speed making noise. When the fan starts on high the rpm of the...

The cooling fan is supposed to come on when the /ac compressor clutch cycles on, and off when it cycles off.
The idle speed kicks up to compensate for the additional a/c compressor load and the additional alternator load. usually, just the low speed comes on until it hits a much higher temperature.

the system should cycle 4 to 7 times/minute at 79 degrees F.

Here are some things to consider:(The PCM (engine computer) is NEVER defective, don't replace it). I don't think it is the ECT (engine coolant temp sensor) or the Cylinder Head Temp Sensor. Or the VSS or the MAF sensors.

The electronically controlled fan clutch is controlled by the powertrain control module (PCM) based upon requests for airflow to cool the engine, transmission and A/C condenser. If no cooling is required, the electronics permit the fan to spin at a slower speed yielding improved fuel economy.
Inoperative or damaged:
  • Electronically actuated fan clutch
  • Electronically actuated fan clutch controller
  • Wiring, connectors, relays or modules
  • Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor (4.0L SOHC)
  • Cylinder Head Temperature (CHT) sensor (4.6L [3V])
  • Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor
  • Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS)
  • ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
If the cause is not visually evident, connect the scan tool to the Data Link Connector (DLC).
Retrieve any DTC Codes (Diagnostic Test Code). Autozone will do for free.


The cooling fan clutch actuator valve controls the fluid flow from the reservoir into the working chamber. Once viscous fluid is in the working chamber, shearing of the fluid results in fan rotation.

The cooling fan clutch actuator valve is activated with a pulse width modulated (PWM) output signal from the powertrain control module (PCM). By opening and closing the fluid port valve, the PCM can control the cooling fan clutch speed. The cooling fan clutch speed is measured by a Hall-effect sensor and is monitored by the PCM during closed loop operation.

The PCM optimizes fan speed based on engine coolant temperature (ECT), engine oil temperature (EOT), transmission fluid temperature (TFT), intake air temperature (IAT), or air conditioning requirements. When an increased demand for fan speed is requested for vehicle cooling, the PCM monitors the fan speed through the Hall-effect sensor. If a fan speed increase is required, the PCM outputs the PWM signal to the fluid port, providing the required fan speed increase.

Car overheats in slow traffic. If the air conditioner is turned on, car cools. Fans seem to come on, but only come on high speed with air conditioner.

Check your coolant temp sensor its most likely bad. Just keep in mind that they sometimes have two of them one for the gauge and one that turns on the fan. The sensor is most the time in the head of the engine.

Air conditioner comes on briefly then stops. The temperature gage on the panel which shows outside temperature is inaccurate sometimes giving a display of -27 degrees.

Well the outside temperature gauge is generally not wired into the a/c. The internal temperature is more important but is not displayed as such. The 'internal' temperature sensor is used to regulate the a/c blending door and blower speed.

When did the cooling problem start?

Vw golf gti internal fan not working

there is a fan resistor which controls the speed of the fan,which is probably burnt out,should be located near the fan motor,behind glove box.
