Everything depends on make and model, but usually, no you cant. A radiator fan is not designed to line up with the wrong parts. In some cases you may be able to fabricate one to fit. I fan clutch is driven by the engine. Electric clutch is controlled by the computer.

Why does not radiator fan run when ac is of on an 2001 Ford crown Victoria p71?

Hard to understand your question! First, on the crowns with clutch fan and electric fan. When the a/c is off, just the clutch fan will run, if not then have it replaced, when the engine gets too hot then the electric fan will start, if not have the sensor replaced, or check the fan. When you put the a/c on, the electric fan will start, and the clutch fan will stop. Both are temp. sensitive. If the electric fan is always on, then the clutch fan will not turn. Have the sensor checked. I hope this covers your problem.

What controls the condensor fan motor on a 1996 ford crown Victoria?

Do you mean the electric fan ? If so, it will turn on with the a/c, on demand. It will also start up if the engine temp. gets a little high. In the mean time, the clutch fan will do the work. When the electric fan starts up, since it is so strong, it will cool the clutch fan, and the clutch fan will work in a minimal stage. There is a sensor for the electric fan in the engine. Just follow the wire. It would be good to have it replaced.

How do you repair a fan wobble on a 2005 trailblazer?

I think this has an electric fan clutch. If it does then check to make sure it is bolted on good and if that isn't the case then a wobble would indicate a bad fan clutch.
