Cooling fans not working on radiator...

I just noticed today that both cooling fans on my radiator do not come on... at all! I can even turn on the a/c and the fans dont kick on anymore... I noticed this while the car was sitting outside today running and I asked myself "shouldnt the fans be kicking on and off" and they werent.

Is this going to hurt anything until I can get it to my dealer to be fixed when there service shop is rebuilt?

is the engine bay cold or hot when you open the hood? and whats the temperature of the heat if you were to turn it on inside the car? check the 2 sensors above the fans to see if there connected properly

Before going anywhere to fix it, CHECK ALL your FUSES and see if anything blew without you noticing.

This can save you a trip of servicing it. Check both fuse boxes, the one in your engine bay and also the one in your cabin behind the little drawer tray near the hood latch.

Check your radiator level inside the radiator by removing the cap. As was mentioned you need to check the temperature on the gauge. I am not sure the fans come on when your a/c comes on.

I need to figure out a new signature.

Please don't do this if it is still hot... I had a friend in high school burn himself really bad when it all splatted out on him

I was assuming he could read the warning in 15 places under the hood and had an IQ> 60

That's very strange... at least the A/C fan (the one on the passanger side) SHOULD come on as soon you push the A/C button on the console for couple of sec, even if the car is cold.

Is warranty expired?

i dont really care what happens to the car right now... i was told to drive it until my service shop is rebuilt... anything that happens will be fixed

so i dont care... the car has been freaking out since the butterfly screw went flying through my engine, closed the gap on a spark plug and i had to drive it missing and running on 3 cyl's for 20 miles to my house...

honestly this thing is starting to really piss me off

Did you get round to checking the fuses...I had a similar problem with my P11 and it was the engine control fuse, swapped it out and works fine now.
