Your vehicle employs an electric cooling fan which is thermostatically controlled to operate when the engine coolant reaches a specific temperature.

If the radiator cooling fan does not operate even when the coolant temperature high warning light illuminates, the cooling fan circuit may be defective. Check the fuse and replace it if necessary. Refer to “Fuses” F11-46 and “Fuses and circuits” F12-10. If the fuse is not blown, have the cooling system checked by your SUBARU dealer.
