So when I start the car and let it idle the fan will turn on at 170 degrees says my scanner and my gauge. I've changed the engine coolant temperature sensor. The fan will come on and stay on. It will not shut off. Not sure what it is any ideas? Thanks

Any chance your car has a tune on it?

I need to find a way to keep my fans on and to kick on earlier. Car runs pretty hot in city driving. Totally fine on the highway.

A/C is off. Just checked the relays and they are fine. It does have a sct tune....but the tuner says the fans are set to run around 200 degrees. He is trying to figure this out with me. The problem is the car never gets warm enough for the O2 sensors 2 trigger closed loop
