Cooling fan, hose and connections

Your vehicle employs an electric cooling fan which is thermostatically controlled to operate when the engine coolant reaches a specific temperature.

If the radiator cooling fan does not operate even when the following conditions occur, the cooling fan circuit may be defective.

- The engine coolant temperature gauge exceeds the normal operating range (if equipped). Refer to Temperature gauge (models with type A combination meter).

- The coolant temperature high warning light blinks or illuminates in RED (if equipped). Refer to Coolant temperature low indicator light/Coolant temperature high warning light.

Check the fuse and replace it if necessary.

If the fuse is not blown, have the cooling system checked by your SUBARU dealer.

Refer to Fuses and Fuse panel located in the engine compartment.

If frequent addition of coolant is necessary, there may be a leak in the engine cooling system. It is recommended that the cooling system and connections be checked for leaks, damage, or looseness.
