It should not have power and then with key on it should have power. Tony D:- Aug 03, 2014 that is a very serious comm problem Im sad for you, scary code reset it and see if it comes back other sysptoms, low battery just finished jumper cable jump starts, or other odd battery issues??? The Fan Clutch allows the fan to operate at lower speeds and effectively detach at higher speeds when the vehicle is moving and air movement due to velocity aids to cool the engine. Having an extra hand to assist in lifting it up and out is helpful.
A discharged battery could also occur. So I am a little confused and am now going to go through disassembling the shrouds and inspect the harness a bit closer. The vibration can increase with with engine speed. When engine bay temperatures are cold, the fan clutch is disconnected. This is really annoying because the fan just roars the whole time you drive from takeoff to cruising speed. Did ur P0528 code stay all the time or was the code poping up intermitentally?

I drove to and from Acadia from New Hampshire with this condition. The information they gather can help to make the diagnosis easier. I hope to have that corrected next Friday. My Degass bottle had been spitting, as it turns out, on the way to Acadia and then on the way back. Likewise a worn water pump bearing can cause a fan clutch bearing to fail for the same reason, vibration being transmitted from one bearing to the other. Need help with a P0625 code?

When the clutch begins to spin, the pumping action of the clutch in it's cool state moves the fluid way from the working area until the valve moved it back. If it is running smoothly I would check synch of the cam sensor requires special tool and or replace it. Empty i am seing 205-210 coolant temps.
In the morning there has been as much as a 7-10 degree split for the first 5 minutes, oil temp lagging coolant temp. Non-thermal fan clutches Non-thermal fan clutches operate based on the water pump shaft speed. Depending on your engine there should be 2 solenoids, or just one sitting on the top front a little to the right of center. Having too much refrigerant could actually cause catastrophic failure in the system. If you go to buy one, check out amazon. You can speak to a service advisor, get a free quote and set up an appointment to have your vehicle fixed.

U0155 - Lost Communication With Instrument Panel Cluster Control Module Description: Missing message concerns are logged by a module upon failure to receive a message from another module within a defined retry period. Likewise as temperatures move lower, the clutch will disengage reducing drag on the engine when the fan is not needed. If get used one make sure has a return policy. Is the concern still present? What repairs can fix the P0532 code? Many times this can lead to water pump failure. I plan on getting this done probably next payday. If the Fan spins excessively, over 3 revolutions, as though there is no resistance it should be replaced.
The thermal clutch responds based on temperature changes within the engine bay. It might just be a random glitch, that all comms see, all the time on all networks. It is possible that when the clip broke the harness was slightly clipped and caught one of the wires for the sensor. Oil is new, just changed it. It stores the code, and once the code is stored, the Check Engine Light will usually illuminate.
