2001-2004 ENGINE COOLING

Cooling Fans - 170 Chassis


MODEL IDENTIFICATION
MODEL IDENTIFICATION
DESCRIPTION & OPERATION
Vehicles are equipped with a cooling fan module mounted to the radiator. Cooling fan assembly includes an
electric motor and one-piece fan shroud. The cooling fan assembly is attached to radiator by screws and
retaining clips. Cooling fan operation is controlled by an input signal from Powertrain Control Module (PCM).
PCM enables cooling fan through the engine/climate control fan module via DATA-bus communication system.
In addition, A/C control module can request that PCM activate cooling fan control circuit, when A/C high side
pressure reaches a specified level.
TROUBLE SHOOTING
PRELIMINARY INSPECTION
Verify customer complaint by operating system. Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical and electrical
damage. Check generator belt tension and condition. Ensure that battery voltage is within specifications. Inspect
for blown fuses and damaged relays. For fuse and/or relay identification, see WIRING DIAGRAMS .
Verify ground connection integrity between engine, body, battery and generator. Check for damaged wiring
harnesses and/or switches. Check for a broken or partially broken wire inside insulation, which could cause
system malfunction but prove good in a continuity/voltage check with system disconnected. Ensure any
aftermarket electronic equipment is properly installed. If fault is found, repair as necessary. If no fault is found,
check for conditions that might cause an intermittent situation.
ELECTRIC RADIATOR FAN
WARNING: Vehicles are equipped with air bag supplemental restraint system. Before
attempting any repairs involving steering column, instrument panel or
related components, see SERVICE PRECAUTIONS (or AIR BAG SAFETY
PRECAUTIONS) and DISABLING & ACTIVATING AIR BAG SYSTEM in
appropriate AIR BAG RESTRAINT SYSTEMS article.
NOTE: When the battery is disconnected, vehicle computer and memory system may
lose data. Driveability problems may exist until computer systems have
completed a relearn cycle.

Disconnect harness plug connector from cooling fan. Spin fan blade by hand several times and check for
imbalance or grinding noises, if imbalance or grinding noise is found, replace cooling fan motor. See
ELECTRIC COOLING FAN ASSEMBLY under REMOVAL & INSTALLATION.
ELECTRIC RADIATOR FAN DOES NOT RUN
Some possible causes of radiator fan not running include, faulty fan motor, fan relay, PCM, engine coolant
temperature sensor, A/C pressure transducer, fuse or wiring faults.
SERVICE PRECAUTIONS
BATTERY DISCONNECT/CONNECT
Disconnect/Connect Procedures
1. Turn off ignition. Open engine hood. After opening vehicle wait at least 4 minutes before disconnecting
battery or alarm will be triggered.
2. Connect quiescent current retention unit, if necessary.
3. Disconnect negative battery cable (1) and insulate cable lug to prevent unwanted contact with ground
point (W16/4). See Fig. 1 .
4. To connect, reverse disconnect procedure. If quiescent current retention unit was not used, perform basic
programming. See BASIC PROGRAMMING . After repairs, read DTC memory and erase trouble
codes from memory. See RETRIEVING DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODES under SELF-
DIAGNOSTICS.
NOTE: Numbers and letters in text refer to numbers and letters in figures.

BASIC PROGRAMMING
1. Set time on instrument cluster. Pull out knob at lower right of speedometer. To adjust hour, turn to right.
To adjust minute, turn to left.
2. If necessary, set time at stationary heater timer.
3. Start engine and run at idle. Turn steering wheel from one lock position to the other to activate steering
angle sensor. Center steering wheel. Malfunction indicator lamp should go out.
4. Code radio. See CODING RADIO .
Coding Radio
1. Turn ignition on. CODE will appear on radio display. Enter first code number with station button. For
example, station button 1 is number 1.
2. After entering first number, CODE will disappear and first number entered will appear followed by 4
dashes. The next character to be entered flashes.
3. After entering all 5 numbers the first character starts flashing again. If an input error has occurred it can

be corrected at this time by reentering the complete correct code.
4. Press TUNE, AUTO/SEEK or SC button. If code is correct, radio automatically switches on and indicates
the station or frequency stored with station button 1. If an incorrect code number has been entered, CODE
appears again on display. If an incorrect code is entered 3 times, WAIT appears on display and radio
locks up for approximately 10 minutes. If an incorrect code is entered 3 times again, radio locks up for
approximately 10 additional minutes. After 9 incorrect attempts, lock time increases to 60 minutes.
Another 3 incorrect entries locks up radio for another 60 minutes. Radio must remain switched on during
lock up time.
SELF-DIAGNOSTICS
SLK models are equipped with a Cooling Fan With Integrated Control Unit. Cooling fan control module is
integral to cooling fan motor and mounted to radiator fan shroud. Fan control module is OBD II capable, and
will set a DTC in memory if a fault is detected. Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (ECT) faults are also
monitored by the ECM and will set a DTC.
To check for and erase stored DTCs with scan tool. See RETRIEVING DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODES
and CLEARING DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODES . After repairs are completed check for and erase any
DTCs stored in (ME-SFI) system. See appropriate SELF-DIAGNOSTICS article in ENGINE
PERFORMANCE. For more information on the self-diagnostic system, see appropriate SELF-DIAGNOSTICS
article in ENGINE PERFORMANCE.
