Question about 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser
Radiator fan only works when the a/c is on. the Car overheats when the heat is on. The fan doesn't come on
Probably not . There are fuses to check and a relay to check as well as the coolant temperature sensor to check . If the engine overheats when you have the heater on it suggests an air lock in the cooling system . Have the system pressure bled along with all the other checks.

check the fan motor to see if it has power to it with the key on,with a test light if it does not it could be the coolant temp sensor or the fan relay,if it has power replace the fan motor.

Turn ur car on defrost and check to c if fan is running. It should kick on on defrost. If it does not try checking fan or relay or your fuse. If of does and still gets hot maybe a good coolant flush will work.
