Overheating in 01 pt cruiser

I am experiencing the overheating only when i run my ac. The fan is not spinning. I have tried replacing the relay. But I noticed there are two relays. Should I replace the secondary relay too?

    I drove my PT cruiser while it over heated and blown the head gasket someone told me I might have done damage to the bottom of the motor. Is this true? If so, how much do you think this will cost me?

Hi mate i am in Australia and i am a truck mechanic and own a 2003 pt cruiser and have been experiencing the same over heating problems , the problems is that the low or high speed fan s ar not coming on when they are supposed to i asked all of the chrysler dealerships in my state if they have ever experienced the problem and the answer was no and were no'e intereted in helping unless i took it to them and they would experiment with it till they found the fault haha, well my wallet is still full and i have found the fault and this could be the fault of many pt's that are over heating as the fan' s not working when they should. OK this is what i have found and have never looked back and had no more probelems , the fault i found is the three pin female plug on the harness the connects to the fan had a broken contact inthe sealed plug so i cut the plug off of the harness and fan and just used universal utilux bullet style connectors and that fix my overheating problem for ever, cheers Mark from downunder

It can be issue with faulty motor or its faulty fan control relay.


Both are to be inspected.

Test volt at fan relay and fan motor.

01 pt cruiser is overheating only when the a/c is on have changed radiator cap, thermostate, relays and sensor that tells the fan when to turn on and off


Make sure your radiator isn't clogged or dirty, then it's very important to know at how many degrees do the sensor that you bought activate the fans (It's written on the sensor). Be sure that is no more than 80°C (176°F), cause most of those sensors activate above 100°C (212°F) at that point the water of the radiator is already boiling so you don't want that. After that the radiator cap should be 16psi of pressure to open if it's below 16psi change it. Finally buy a good antifreezer/coolant (I would recommend Prestone Antifreezer/coolant)
