Question about 2002 Dodge Ram Maxi
Is this normal problem
Are you sure it isn't only a failed thermoswitch?
There isn't normally much of a circuit; the fan motor is directly or indirectly controlled by a bimetal switch that is screwed into the lower radiator tank. That switch could control a relay but it isn't common to do it that way, it would be better since that kind of switch doesn't handle fairly heavy currents as the fans need so a relay would relieve it from carrying no more than a couple hundred milliamperes at the most.
