Question about Cars & Trucks
Was going to replace coolant temp sensor sensor as fans don't work,and heating issues among other symptoms. Fan does not work while running air con either. fans work directly from battery. followed advice on net to disconnected sensor and try to start to see if fans work, suggesting faulty sensor. Just clicking sounds, no turnover. Reconnected sensor and still the same, just clicking sound now its worse, crazy dash lights, speedo shows max, locking or immobilizer issues. Afraid of burnt starter or destroying PCM. or maybe just need to reset it I hope? Please, any help, Scott 9/1997 Chrysler Grand Voyager LE V6 3.3lt.
Try a boost first before taking things apart,sound like low voltage.
Now about the fans.Sometimes it's easier (if the fans will work with voltage applied) just to install a relay and fire it off the switched power wire at the A/C compressor.Use this relay supply to voltage to the fans when the compressor runs.Want fans when not using A/C?Run a "in rad hose" temp switch and run that wire to the same relay to run fans when temp rises.Think after market hot rod stuff and keep it easy and simple,

there is a starter relay in the relay box. check for power going to the relay box , also have your check for voltage going to the starter . check for ing feed at the small wire also . before replacing any more parts , i would think that all off this was done the frist time?

Disconnect the wires leading to both of the fans. Remove the cross-member that goes over the radiator. Remove the four bolts securing the fan assembly and lift it out.

hi there, from my experience this sounds like a simple starter motor failure, remove the starter and test in on a bench before replacing,
any other help please ask

It sounds like a bad connection in all honesty. if you havent replaced terminals do that. any corrosion you should clean check the cables also and see if they are corroded ander neath the coating I have seen terminals that were pretty tight but yet not enough to crank. I truly believe that is where your problem will be found. please let me know.
