I have a 2001 PT and it overheats the rad fan will not turn on. I took it to auto zone to hook it up to the code reader and it said that BBECM has detected an open or shorted condition in the radiator fan relay circuit Probable cause open or shorted high speed radiator fan relay.
What dose this mean is it a relay or the computer. I have read alot about the pcm needing re-programed is this something the Chrysler deal should take care of it seem to be happening to alot of people.

The heat is made in the engine so if the engine is overheated and nothing else is hot, the water is not moving.
I would have suspected a thermostat also.
I would guess now that you have a dead water pump.

SOURCE: 96 Crysler lhs over heating.
I HAD THIS PROBLEM AND REPLACED THE THERMOSTAT, BUT THE TRICK IS TO OPEN THE BLEED SCREW ON THE THERMOSTAT HOUSING, AND FILL THE ENGINE WITH COOLENT UNTIL IT RUNS OUT OF THE BLEED SCREW. (CLOSE THE SCREW THEN) NOW THE ENGINE WILL HAVE THE CORRECT AMOUNT OF COOLANT.
I DIDN`T KNOW THE PROCEDURE FOR THIS AND MINE KEPT OVER HEATING UNTIL I LEARNED THIS TRICK.

If i remember right the color of the smoke will tell you what it is and i think blue smoke is water getting into the combustion chamber. The car can run like this for a while. Lots of times the car will run like normal besides the smoke. But the passage in the gasket will continue to get bigger and lead to more serious problems.
