Need advice. Daughter's 2010 Edge puked coolant on the parking garage floor where she works and of course started steaming. I figured a bad hose or maybe radiator. Had the car towed to the house. I could see nothing obvious so I filled the reservoir with water a cranked the car to get it to operating temp and again to see if there was an obvious leak.
While bringing car up to temp, thought I would turn on A/C to expedite the process. A/C compressor kicks on fine but blower motor does not work. Tried it in A/C and heat mode...nothing. Also noticed that when car got up to temp, neither radiator fan ever came on. The car ran for a good 30 minutes at operating temp without ever overheating or leaking anywhere. Both top and bottom hoses were hot.
Could an issue with the A/C blower not working cause the over heating? Are the radiator fans and the A/C blower some how interconnected to work together? I'm really puzzled and not sure where to start.
Any thoughts at all?
