Question Radiator fan doesn't come on!

So anyways, engine temp gets up to 225-230 degrees when idling at red lights, but gets back down to 170-175 degrees when moving again. What should I do...can I do it myself?

And then make sure you don't have a bent blade that hits the radiator not allowing it to turn "freely"

can you hear the fan motor atleast kick on at around 220 or so? also like hottanas said follow the wires and make sure there not loose or stripped.

Buy a HONDA!!

Seriously! You need to get a service manual so you can find things like your fuses and idle!

More than likely it is a fuse!

Mmmk, thanks y'all
Fuse was good, checked all the wire connections and cleaned them up a little...and that little bit must've done the trick, because now the fan kicks on @ 221 deg and back off @ 219 deg.
Running 170 deg when under way.
