Mad Coolant Fans constantly run

I own a 2001 L200 2.2L. No matter if the engine is cold or hot, outside temp. is cold or hot, both my coolant fans run when the engine is running. I can however turn the engine off or remove both the 30 amp fuses to kill the fans from coming on.

One day I tried removing the connector off the ECTS to see if it was broken, dirty, or loose. Nothing appeared wrong with it, so I put the connector back on the ECTS and of course left the 30 amp fuses out to keep the fans silent. After a couple hours of the car sitting there I got in it to go home from work and the engine service light was on for the first time. I drove the car until I made a stop. I replaced the 30 amp fuses, the engine service light went out and the fans did not run. I thought something might have corrected it self with the fans until about a week later the fans started running again.

Does anyone have a thought or should I bite the bullet and take it to the shop.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Not 100% sure about the L-series, but the fans probably run when the A/C compressor is running. Make sure the climate system is totally off and check the fans.

My guess is a stuck relay.

You'll get better responses if you post this in the L-Series Tech forum.

Thanks for the reply, I had made sure the air condition was not running, cause I had read about that earlier. I had previously located the relays before posting my original message, even though the relay was only 12 bucks I would have plugged it in, but they are soldered to a board.

Also I moved the original message to the L-series tech forum.

The car has 100,000 miles on it, I might just go ahead and replace the ECTS, that will not hurt a thing, even if that does not fix the running fans.

Thanks again.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
