Need some HELP! Radiator Fan is not working.

99 CL 2.3 4Cyl.

The driver-side fan does not kick on at all.
My car will overheat on occasion.
I Am wondering what it could be.
Anyone have any ideas?
I'm guessing the motor is fried.

If it's only one fan not turning on, its the fan. Happened to mine couple years ago. I remember finding one of the motor brushes was stuck and eventually lost contact with the motor. You can take the casing of the motor off and get to the brushes, carefully clean 'em with out alcohol and q-tips. maybe some electrical contact cleaner, then (now I don't know if this is orthodox or not) but I lubed the brushes with little bit of motor oil. Been fine for two years now.

Thats not entirely true. the left side, drivers is the cooling fan. The right side is the condensor fan. The right fan should ONLY turn on when the A/C is on or when the Oil reaches a critical temp.

find your cooling fan power, splice it and tap it to the positive battery terminal.
It should turn on. If it does than the fan is good and it's your switch. If it does not turn on it's your fan.

coolant switch can be bought at any autozone type stores. GL

I had a similar problem with my Acura Cl AC Condenser fan motor. It gave me alot of problems. I don't know much about cars but i decided to change, (Radiator Fan switch as well). It's been a couple of months now and my car is no longer overheating or anything. I recommend you do the same. I bought mine online from qeautoparts.com at a very good price. Good luck every.
