Default Why is my 2002 Honda Civic Ex Overheating?

Ok, the thermostat has been changed twice now and it still overheats. I have noticed that when the temperature gauge is almost to the top neither of the radiator fans are on. I did a direct connect from the battery to the fans and they both turn on. Could this be a sort of fan relay issue? If so, where is this located and is there a type of diagram that would show me? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

relays are normally located next to fuses and the diagram is usually under the cover. doing a direct connect to the battery can drain your battery, try

Check your fuses first.

can you smell anti-freeze while your driving?

You need to replace either your coolant temp sender or the Cooling fan switch. Good luck and hope this helps.

Yes it could be your fan causing the overheating problem. It could also be blown fan fuse. Check also the connection wiring of the fan, it could be loose or disconnected. Hope this help!
