Question about 2001 Chrysler Town & Country
We have a T&C limited with automated heating and AC controls. When we turn off the power (for the heating and AC), the fan continues to run and seems to run on high. Once the temperature warms to its setting, it doesn't seem like the fan ever goes to low, but somewhere in the middle to high range.
Has anyone had any experience with this? I don't know a thing about electrical work, so please spoon feed me. Is this something I could repair on my own or best to take to the dealership?
I have a 2002 T&C Van that did the same thing awhile ago. We were on a trip in snowy weather when the fans all went to full on their own. Changing the controls did nothing. A little research showed that this is a common problem. The temp control sensor ( I believe thats what it was called ) inside the fan duct work had failed. It provides temp data to the computer that controls the automated climate control systems. It's easy to get to as its in the duct just above the pass. foot well. There is a small plate /cover thats is screwed into the duct. I think it also had a wire/clip connecting to it. Remove the clip and remove the screws. The plate/ cover pulls towards you revealing the sensor. It has numerous vanes that stick into the fans airflow providing data. Remove the entire assembly and get a new one for your year of vehicle. I got mine at the dealer for around $90.00. Just reverse the removal procedure and put it back in. Start the vehicle and your fans should be back under control. Worked perfect again for my car. I would rate the difficulty of this repair at about a 2 out of 10. Very easy for most. Took ten minutes.. Hope this helps..Jeff
