Question about 1996 Chrysler Town & Country
I believe that I need to replace the board that controls everything from the rear windshield wipers to the temperature control and fan control. My wife took to dealership and they wiggle wire under console and now it works. They said the part costs $500 and maybe someone had one for $200. But I don't know what the part is to look it up and find one or ask a salvage yard if they have one. Sorry for rambling, any help would be appreciated.
If it was made to work by wiggling a wire it stands to reason that the part is repairable.Not sure what part it is but cant wire be retained in such a way as to stay working permanantly?Maybe find a mechanic that can repair rather than replace?Seems like a far cheaper option.Anyway ,good luck

The cooling fan clutch actuator valve controls the fluid flow from the reservoir into the working chamber. Once viscous fluid is in the working chamber, shearing of the fluid results in fan rotation.
The cooling fan clutch actuator valve is activated with a pulse width modulated (PWM) output signal from the powertrain control module (PCM). By opening and closing the fluid port valve, the PCM can control the cooling fan clutch speed. The cooling fan clutch speed is measured by a Hall-effect sensor and is monitored by the PCM during closed loop operation.
The PCM optimizes fan speed based on engine coolant temperature (ECT), engine oil temperature (EOT), transmission fluid temperature (TFT), intake air temperature (IAT), or air conditioning requirements. When an increased demand for fan speed is requested for vehicle cooling, the PCM monitors the fan speed through the Hall-effect sensor. If a fan speed increase is required, the PCM outputs the PWM signal to the fluid port, providing the required fan speed increase.
