it runs for a reason. no need to disconnect it. im pretty sure its all about a temp signal not really a timer.

Is the fan actually running forever causing the battery to die? That's the only reason I could see this being asked.


If that is the case there are several things you need to check on to fix it. One is the fan relays, and I forgot the others If you do a quick search in the Accord section I'm sure those threads will pop up. If I recall there's three things or so (one being like a fan control module that's in the dash?)

yea there is a part under the dash that controls how long after the car shuts off, it runs. so i would like to know how to bypass only that function.

Before you do that. Make sure the timr is actually failing. Do this when the fans are on, key off. Disconnect temp switch B at the upper radiator hose housing. If the fans stay on, the timer is bad. You can disable the timer (I dont recommend it) by pulling out the blue wire, white wire at the timer.

Yeah because that's exactly what I did

What makes you think you need to create a new thread and ask a question that has been successfully answered 1000000 times before? (literally)

I don't have every fix memorized, and wouldn't expect anyone else to. I asked you a question since you don't explain what testing you had done and why you were wanting to remove that function.

Keep up that great mentality of yours douche-canoe

I say **** you guys.

The man asked a question, which in turn was answered with more questions that did not at all address what he originally asked.

He didnt ask what a fan timer whas, or how to trouble shoot the cooling fan circuit.

He just wanted to know what you had to do to bypass the fan timer. Exact same reason i am here. Because when you SEARCH this is the thread with the highest results.

so **** all you people and your "why dont you search" answer. eventually, all anyone can find is stupid *** replies like you dumb ****s post up.

fan timers frequently **** the bed on 90-93 accords..and many other accords at that.

There is no reason not to disable the fan timer. Its another useless piece of intergrated crap that leaves u stranded with a dead battery.

So once again. **** you newb bitches. die.

Way to bump a 6 month year old thread ****tard with the exact stupid reply you complained about. As to searching.......



Yeah - the reason this one is at the top is because it was the most recently posted, however I'm thinking with 112 results you can get your answer.

This fan timer bypass repair worked for me on my 1991 Honda Accord LX.
The wiring colors are the same and I used a solderless quick tap connector also called a solderless quick splice connector.
