Question about 2001 Chrysler Town & Country

1 Answer

Heating and AC fan won't turn off!

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?

    We have been driving by brother inlaws van which is a T&C 2003 LTD and it started to do that today. It seems as if there is no adjustment on the fan speed using the dial. Not sure if a fuse is tripped but if it was you would think the whole system would go down

    We have the exact same problem on our 2003 T&C Ltd. It started acting up on a very cold day after the van had been parked in the driveway for a few hours. Blower fan locked on high regardless of what setting you use...seems even higher when you turn the power off on the heat/ac unit.

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

P0481 on grand prix 2002. cooling fans work with a/c on and relays seem ok. vehicle temp gauge opertaes ok and does not seem to get hot.


sounds normal, the fans were made to run continuous w/ ac running, but on sensor when ac is off. if car isn't overheating, the fans are probably running from time to time ,but your just not catching them running

1995 explorer heater/ac blower motor


I would check to see if there is a short on the fan controller switch and the motor. sounds like a crossed wire, especially if it's ignoring your speed selection and running when the key is out. could be near the fuse box under the dash. the cig lighter circuit is live all the time as well as a couple others, it maybe crossing with it. I would pull the fuse panels assem down and check for crosses and shorts.
