Reading Topic: Erratic Cooling Fan - 2003 Mazda 6 S
I just got a call from the Service Advisor. They noticed the fan problem, and have fixed it! I was right about the fan running loud and fast. The Advisor told me that their technician called Mazda Corps Tech line and apparently they got info on the fan. Thankfully my 6S duplicated the problem for them. Apparently their is a module in the computer or something like that that was calling for the fan to only go on High speed when the fan was called to go on. I guess there must be atleast two or three speeds to the fan, and my fan was only going to high speed when it was called on to operate. Thats why I could audibly hear the fan so much. They replaced the module and the fan quit acting up! I think this device also controls when the fan comes on to, because it was coming shortly(few seconds)after starting the car up on a cool morning.
Concerning the driver's side leather seat that is showing a raised impression of the heating wires or some cord shaped impression through the seating surface, the advisor has ordered a new cushion, and it may come in tomorrow. If it doesn't they will have me come back and replace the cushion while I wait for the car.
The two recalls, for the fuel pump seal, and the door sash rust check, went ok. Even though my 6S was bought in May 2003, and is an early 6S, there was no problem with defects. Mazda does ask you to come in with 1/2 tank or less fuel in your car so they can do this fuel pump seal check.
Well, I may get the car tomorrow.
I ended up getting an upgrade on the Mazda Warranty paid rental car. Instead of getting a Ford Focus type car, they gave me a 2004, GMC Canyon, 4dr, 4WD, Pickup with 1100 miles on the odometer! Enterprise didn't have any compacts available, so they had to upgrade me at no cost.
I'll keep you folks posted on the cooling fan situation. I hope this has answered the problem.
Boy, it's going to be wonderful to drive in stop and go traffic and have a quiet engine compartment.
