The relay that runs this fan is stuck closed, have seen this issue fixed by replacing the fan relay.

    It is a fan that cools the area around the fuel injectors to stop vapor lock, I never said it was the radiator fan, this fan has it's own relay.

2005 dodge stratus with 2.4 small intake fan wont shut off. Is there a easy part i can replace?


No really. Something is shorted and keeping the fan on. Could be a bad wire/s. Could be the fuse panel.

I have 2005 I changed the starter and battery good but it still won't start


First does it crank, if it does then check to see if the fuel injectors are getting fuel.....could be a fuel pump...

second....if there is nothing when you turn the key and the battery is good and the starter was replaced...it could be a bad ground.....thats the ground coming off your battery and goes to your chassis of the car.........let me know how you make out.

My 2005 dodge status keeps over heating and my temp guage is wrong causing my fans not to work why


It is pretty hard to TS this type of trouble without being in front of the car.
Try to turn the air conditioner on, and check if the fans or fan comes on. This will give you an idea if the problem is the sensor or the fan it self. If the fan does not comes on, then it is probably the fan. Also, you can test the fan by connecting it directly to the battery. This will also let you know if the fan is in working condition or not.
Now, if the fan is not working, there is no warning about it hen overheating, then it could be the sensor, have it check by a professional.

I have a 2005 dodge stratus that when i turn off the key there is a sound of a fan or motor running. The sound is coming from the top of the engine, its not the electric radiator fan


if you have a certain model of stratus there is a fan under the intake on the 2.4 engine. this fan blows air into the exhaust for emissions purposes. the circuit on these fans have a problem with not shutting off. i believe the dodge dealer installs a resister in this circuit to make it shut off. it can make your battery go dead if it dosnt shut off

At what temperature should the radiator fan come on for a 2004 dodge stratus?


You may or may not have a problem with the fan. It should come on around 220 degrees or when the ac is running.
The temp on the gauge and the temp the computer sees can be 10 or 15 degrees different either way.

Check engine light on its the air ambient temperature sensor


Ambient air temperature sensor, monitors the temperature around the radiator even when vehicle is off. Uses this information to determine whether the cooling fan needs to run after vehicle is shut off. When sensor is defective, can cause fan to run until battery dies if vehicle is off or may not activate at all, creating an overheat condition.

Will not crank


Did you replace the starter relay yet ?
A quick and repeated clicking sound, like a mini machine gun firing sound is usually a dead battery or bad electrical connection, but it could also be a bad starter relay.
You sound experienced enough to know if you see a corroded wiring connection this would be a sign of a bad connection.
Are you sure the new battery has enough charge in it to turn the car over? Try jump starting it just in case.
Good luck and keep us posted.

Fan on intake will not shut off


There is a relay and yes it is controlled by a intake temp sensor, they will run a long time, up to 1 hour on a hot day, have you had the battery tested, maybe it is getting weak, but if that's not the case why not just disconnect the fan motor, that is what I did, had a similar problem.

The cooling fan keeps running even when the car is shut off. It keeps running until the battery gives out.


The fan is suppose to run until engine cools off. If battery drains before cooling down a good place to start is a weak battrey
