The fan on my wife’s 2014 Encore ran all night and killed the battery. I replaced the relay with no change. I am now looking for the coolant temp switch/sensor. Anybody know where it is located? Anybody have similar issue with the fan?

And yes, I joined today to ask this question. As I am currently driving my wife to work everyday. We plan to keep the car till it dies, so maybe I can post up more helpful things I discover as I go.

Thanks, Jason

Quick update. Located the sensor. For anyone looking, it is just behind the intake tube in the side of the thermostat housing. I’ll get with the dealership tomorrow and buy a new one. Hoping this is the fix.

Throwing parts it at is not a good way to go about this. And it could get needlessly expensive. As Mel suggested check for current and backtrack it from there.
