Where is the thermostat on the CRV 2000
I had the same problem, i found the switch that controls my fans and jumped it. i could jump it since it is a two wire sensor. after i did this the vehicle did not overheat. i also made sure the fan control relay was working. the sensor screws into the thermostat housing.
Both fans should run when you turn the a/c on. If that isn't happening, check that the fans are receiving power. The connectors are easy to access on the sides of their respective shrouds; just put a voltmeter probe in the back of each pin or use a test light to a known ground such as a metal engine part. The light will only light on one pin of each connector. No voltage or no light on either fan with the a/c on and the engine running means either a blown fuse, a wiring fault or a bad ECM (computer) in descending order of likelihood. If you have voltage or light but the fans do not run, the fans are bad. Neither fan running points away from fan relays, since each fan has its own.
I wanted to advise people that consider taking their engines thermostat out too not do so for very long as when you don't have a thermostat present in the engines cooling system that it creates cavitation in the crankcase causing a sludge buildup that is not good for an engines longevity as the sludge can clog oil journals and narrow passageways to bearings that require a steady supply of engine oil fed to their meeting surfaces that creates friction so please do yourself and your engine a favor do not take your thermostats out for long and if you do take it and you find that there's a noticeable difference in your engines temp reading on your temperature gauge that the engines staying within an acceptable range that you replace your thermostat as soon as possible as the consequences of driving an engine without a thermostat and even when its overheating should not be being driven as the damages that can occur while doing so are not worth it and if you have too don't do it for long if possible.
