Question about 2005 Dodge Magnum
2005 Magnum RT overheated due to fan's not working. replacement fan motors on order. let it cool down and went out to start it to make sure it was ok. started fine. the next morning went out to check it again and it started then died almost immediately. tried it again and it died again. tried it again, this time giving it gas for about 5 or 6 seconds to keep it running, let off the gas and it stayed running. now i have to do this every time i start it. any thoughts????
Some cars cut off as a fail safe to overheating especially on newer cars. The computer controls the fans and if they are not working the computer is probably telling the car to shut off. Have you replaced the motors already, if not, this is what's happening. Once you replace the motors it should run fine. I wouldn't suggest driving it too much with this problem as it may affect the computer by giving it false info.
