Somewhere around the flange of the engine cooling radiator is a thermostat that opens and closes a circuit for the fan, but first check the fuse box in the engine compartment and look for the engine fan relay fuse... Check it out first!

Ok the easy thing to do is check fuses and the fan relays because most of the time this is the problem mid problems are burned out sensors witch is your coolant temp sensor they way I always check it is run it hot switch relay with a different one if nothing use volt meeter to check power if nothing still remove coolant temp sensor wire and use a staple or a peice of wire to jump it if turns on then sensor is bad joel920368@ yahoo.com

SOURCE: my 1998 pontiac sunfire is getting hot but not overheating

the fan may be bad but you can find the hot side of the plug and run a hot to the battery and see if the fan comes on. if it doesent you know you have a bad fan if it does you can run a wire to the fuse panel so that it comes on when the car does and shuts off when you shut the car off

SOURCE: I have a 2000 chrysler concorde that the engine light just popped on - the error codes are po302, po420, po340

P0302-cylinder #2 misfire detected
P0420- catalyst efficiency below threshold bank 1
P0340-No cam signal at PCM.
The Cam sensor most likely needs to be replaced first. Clear the codes after that and drive and see what comes back on.

SOURCE: Radiator fan doesn't always turn on when engine gets hot

check fuses #25 and #6 (both 30 amp)
the fan thermostat is on the left side of the rad.
turn the ignition on, and after pulling back the boot, short across the two terminal with a screwdriver.

if the fan runs, fan and wiring are both good.

if it only runs when thermoswitch is shorted like this, switch needs to be replaced (get the low temp switch to prevent overheating - your temp gauge will not go over the middle position even on the hottest days; also get a low temp thermostat,and ALWAYS get a Saab stat, not an after market!)

if the fan doesn't run when switch is shorted, check for valtage between green wire and ground at the switch.

Voltage indicates faulty fan, if no voltage then check the fan relay J in the main fuse box.

My 95 Chrysler Concorde is running hot on short distance driving


Have the cooling system pressure tested with a special tool and see if the source of the leak is the water pump, also feel under the pump for antifreeze.

Have 2001 chrysler concorde thats overheating. How do i get to thermostat? Under an intake assembly. Where is fuse for cooling fan


Hello Jim.
The thermostat is located at the inlet hose from the radiator on the front of the engine.
Here is a diagram of the housing.
kiltylake_202.gif

There are two fuses for the cooling fan and two relays as the fans run on two different speeds.
These fuses are in the under hood power distribution box.
Fuse "E" and fuse "B" and the fuse for the relays is fuse# 21.

1994 chrysler concorde radiator overflow tank hoses leaking


It sound like there may be a small leak in the cooling system. You can check this by pressurizing the cooling system. You can buy a pressure checker for about 100 dollars. It will usually show up leaks that are small because you can pressurize the system cold and it won't evaporate.

Very hot car.


I'd test the fan by connecting it directly to the battery to verity it is functioning. If it is, check the relays that control the fans they should be located in the fuse box in the engine bay. If the relays are ok the only other thing that could be causing the problem is the temp sensor on the radiator.
