Yes, they should only run when the engine gets to a certain temperature. If they still fail to operate then you may want to check your fuses and relays both inside the car and in the engine bay to make sure they are all good.

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
here is your cooling system electrical wiring diagram.
use a digital volt ohm meter to check for power at relays and be sure to check fan operation (turn car on and fans and poke with a stick if fan starts operating and then shuts off it is drawing to much power and needs to be replaced. if blades will not turn fan is locked up and needs to be replaced. do not run engine for too long without proper functionong cooling system you could cause sever engine damage i.e. headgasket or cracked block. also be sure the radiator has plenty of coolant and is functioning normally hope this helps
When you say right hand, is that driver or passsenger side? Some people use sides from front and some from behind the wheel. Do you see any oil leakage on the engine from around the seal? Was it making any noise before it died?
usually a recurring blown fuse has to do with excessive resistance on whatever that particular fuse controls. I had that happen a few times on a car that I bought. the sway bar was bent into the radiatior fan just far enough to put pressure on the fan blades.
on some cars they have a dual speed fan system where the fans are always on and they spin faster when necessary; if you have a/c and are using the defrost mode, that automatically turns on the a/c compressor and the fans as well; if your computer doesn't see the temperature sensor it will turn on the fans by default; and finally it could be a stuck relay.
ok first the fan relay should be located inside the elecrical box. this is usually located on the drivers side under the hood. next even you have only one speed when you turn the switch it's because the reostat is bad it is located in the fan motor housing. hope this helps.
