Check with ownes manal but it's not uncommon for an electric fan to continue to run and cool down the motor 2 to 3 minutes after the vehicle is turned off

    It never showed signs of being over heated. Plus the fan never shut off and now I believe the battery is dead? Should I put the battery on a charger or just jump it and see if the fan works right?

    charge the battery if the fan is still running than the thermostat might need to be replaced

    Thank you Tom!! I will do that. Sorry, 1 more car is outside(not in a garage or under cover) and it is raining. Can I charge it in the rain or should I wait till it stops? Not sure when that will be? I''m in OH.

SOURCE: my 1999 plymouth voyager van's radiator fan constantly on

The fan on this van is electric and heat activated. It will run when the thermostat shows the tempurature is too high regardless of whether or not the engine is on.

If it is working correctly it should turn off in no more than 10 minutes assuming the engine weren't actually overheating.

If it is staying on longer than that, the fan's thermostat may need to be replaced.

If the fan comes on when the engine is cold, then you can be pretty sure the thermostat is the culprit.

I hope this helps.

Radiator fans won't come on while van is running

Start the car and turn on the AC to max. Do either of the fans run with the AC compressor engaged? Also, there is a temp sensor for the fan circuit but I don't know exactly where it is located on that vehicle.

Do they stay on all the time? By the radiator on the driver sideon the vehicles frame there is a little square box this is the cooling fan relay they are known for staying latched and keeping the fan running constantly. It's attached to the frame by to small bolts.

Fan is not shutting off when van is turned off; not overheating; suggested looking at thermo coupler; need diagram for location

The fan is control by a solid state fan relay. The relay is located on the drivers side either by the radiator where the lower trans cooler line attaches or behind the front bumper cover. You can trace the fan wiring to the location.

The relays are known to go bad and either cause the fans to stay on or cause the fans not to work at all.

They are available after market and most good parts stores will have them in stock.

My 1999 plymouth voyager van's radiator fan constantly on

There is a fan relay in the fuse box in the engine compartment. Usually that is the reason why it won't turn off. It fuses in the on position. If you have the manual it will say which one is the fan relay. just pull it out and get a new one. They are not expensive.

Hope this helps

How do i replace the radiator fan relay in an 05 town and country

this van has a solid state relay unit to control the fan, when it dies it just allows the fans to run. this relay is located behind drivers headlight, attached to the bumper towards the grill. It will either be bolted on or riveted on. There will be big fins on it to keep it cool. When you change this unit you have to mount it for it to work right (zip ties are no good) seen that before.

2000 Plymouth Voyager Overheating

The radiator cooling fan relay has most likely failed. It is underneath the air cleaner on the frame rail just behind the radiator. NO cooling fan = overheating. This is the first thing i would look at. Best way to tell is when the van gets hot see if the cooling fan is on. You will hear it running if it is coming on. It will set a code for the cooling fan relay also.
