    Hi everyone,

    This is my first post; I hope you guys can help.

    I have a 2010 tC. The plastic fan shroud that holds the 2 engine fans broke. I replaced it, and installed the fans back in, but now I only notice 1 fan turn on when I drive the car. I dont remember if both turn on together or if the other one turns on later. I drove the car for 15 minutes, it did not over heat but again only 1 fan turns on. If you are standing outside looking into the engine bay, the one on the left turns on not the right.

    Please let me know if your fans turn on together, or if the one on the right only turns on when the car is really hot.

    Thanks in advance.

    One fan is an engine cooling fan and the other is for the a/c system. Turn on the a/c and both fans should turn on (most cars turn both on with a/c). Also you may want to check all of your fuses, relays and your connections.
    It may have blown a sfuse or damaged the relay when it blew.

    When I turn on the AC, only that 1 fan turns on. I guess I will have to check the fuses, relays, connections and the fan motor.

    BTW since this is a 2010 why was it not fixed under warranty?

    Also you really don't need both fans to cool the car, one is sufficient to keep the car under 180 degrees.

    yeah but the other one increases the flow of air to make the a/c more efficient and to help remove the extra heat created by the condenser which sits in front of the radiator.

    I bought the car was fixed but the shroud was left damaged. I didnt think toyota would continue the warranty on a previously salvaged car; will try with them and see. The car's temperature gauge does pass midline occasionally, so I think the auxiliary fan isnt working.

    If you bought the car from toyota and that is how the Shroud was that is a mess up on there part they should Fix that. Now the temp gauge that is how mine is above half usally. So that to me is normal.

    Hey guys,

    I was wondering if someone could tell me which fuse is for the fan on the drivers side in the engine bay. I found the fuse box but I only found 3 relays that say fan; are there fuses as well?
