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.

A/C refrigerant pressure exceeds 1 310 kPa (190 psi).
After the vehicle is shut off if the engine coolant temperature at key-off is greater than 140?°C (284?°F) and system voltage is more than 12 volts. The fans will stay on for approximately 3 minutes.
The BCM and PCM/ECM command High Speed Fans on under the following conditions:
Engine coolant temperature reaches 110?°C (230?°F).
A/C refrigerant pressure exceeds 1 655 kPa (240 psi).
When certain DTCs set.

This diagnostic procedure supports the following DTCs:
DTC P0480 Cooling Fan 1 Relay Control Circuit
DTC P0481 Cooling Fan 2 and 3 or S/P Relay Control Circuit
DTC P0691 Cooling Fan 1 Relay Control Circuit Low Voltage
DTC P0692 Cooling Fan 1 Relay Control Circuit High Voltage
DTC P0693 Cooling Fan 2 and 3 or S/P Relay Control Circuit Low Voltage
DTC P0694 Cooling Fan 2 and 3 or S/P Relay Control Circuit High Voltage
