SOURCE: cooling fans not working 1999 chevy ventura

I would check the relays by switching them with the same type of relay . For example. The relay for the radio could be the same kind for the cooling fan. Proccess of elimintation.
Then if the switching of the relays does not solve it then I would have the cooling fan replaced.
You may want to take to you local mechainc for the repairs.

SOURCE: won't start, cleaned battery terminals, batt

Most likely it's either your selenoid or your starter. But before you buy one, have someone turn the key tro crank position while you tap the selenoid with the hammer. If it starts, you have a bad starter.

Got a 2004 town n country that was running fine now it won't turn over it's a 3.8

Start with the basics. Check fuse 9 40A in the underhood fuse box. Check for battery voltage on terminals 86 and 30 in the starter relay socket. Check for ground on terminal 85 when you try to start. If you have those, check for voltage at the starter on the yellow/light green wire when trying to start. If no go, do a voltage drop test between the engine and negative battery terminal.

Where is the location of my starter relay ********* fuse on a 2003 Chrysler Sebring sedan


The starter relay is located in the Power Distribution Center (PDC) in the engine compartment. Refer to the PDC label for relay identification and location.

Remove the starter relay from the PDC as described to perform the following tests:
  1. A relay in the de-energized position should have continuity between terminals 87A and 30, and no continuity between terminals 87 and 30. If OK, go to Step 2. If not OK, replace the faulty relay.
  2. Resistance between terminals 85 and 86 (electromagnet) should be 75 ±5 ohms . If OK, go to Step 3. If not OK, replace the faulty relay.
  3. Connect a battery B+ lead to terminals 86 and a ground lead to terminal 85 to energize the relay. The relay should click. Also test for continuity between terminals 30 and 87, and no continuity between terminals 87A and 30. If OK, refer to Relay Circuit Test procedure. If not OK, replace the faulty relay.
  1. The relay common feed terminal cavity (30) is connected to battery voltage and should be hot at all times. If OK, go to Step 2. If not OK, repair the open circuit to the PDC fuse as required.
  2. The relay normally closed terminal (87A) is connected to terminal 30 in the de-energized position, but is not used for this application. Go to Step 3.
  3. The relay normally open terminal (87) is connected to the common feed terminal (30) in the energized position. This terminal supplies battery voltage to the starter solenoid field coils. There should be continuity between the cavity for relay terminal 87 and the starter solenoid terminal at all times. If OK, go to Step 4. If not OK, repair the open circuit to the starter solenoid as required.
  4. The coil battery terminal (86) is connected to the electromagnet in the relay. It is energized when the ignition switch is held in the Start position and the clutch pedal is depressed (manual trans). Check for battery voltage at the cavity for relay terminal 86 with the ignition switch in the Start position and the clutch pedal is depressed (manual trans), and no voltage when the ignition switch is released to the ON position. If OK, go to Step 5. If not OK, check for an open or short circuit to the ignition switch and repair, if required. If the circuit to the ignition switch is OK, see the Ignition Switch Test procedure.
  5. The coil ground terminal (85) is connected to the electromagnet in the relay. It is grounded through the transmission range sensor only when the gearshift selector lever is in the Park or Neutral positions. Check for continuity to ground at the cavity for relay terminal 85. If not OK with an automatic transmission, check for an open or short circuit to the transmission range sensor and repair. It is grounded by the PCM if the conditions are right to start the car. For automatic trans. cars the PCM must see Park Neutral switch and near zero engine rpm. For manual trans. cars the PCM only needs to see near zero engine rpm. To diagnose the Park Neutral switch of the trans range sensor refer to the transaxle section for more information. Check for continuity to ground while the ignition switch is in the start position. If not OK and the vehicle has an automatic trans. verify Park Neutral switch operation. If that checks OK check for continuity between PCM and the terminal 85. Repair open circuit as required. If OK, the PCM may be defective

Checked batt and starter have no dash lights only check engine starter will not even click

If your check engine light is on you should have it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ! An there is no SECURITY light lit on the instrument cluster ? In the underhood fuse / relay box is the CRANK RLY , this relay energizes the starter ! If you pull the relay out of it's socket you'll see four terminals or pin's what ever you like . You'll also see four numbers 85-86, 30-87 . 30 an 87 are the starter side circuit . 30 should have battery voltage if tested with voltmeter or a test light , 87 goes to the S terminal at the starter solenoid . 85 an 86 are the control side circuit , one should have battery voltage an the other is control from the PCM/ECM .If you can use a volt ohm meter you can see what is missing to further you diagnosis , voltage , control ! You mite want to do a voltage drop test of the starter circuit - battery cables ! Check fuse PCM/ABS 10amp left I/P fuse box an PCM (crank) fuse 10amp left I/P fuse box .If you haven't done this type of thing before you may want to take to a ASE certified repair shop ! Here I will post a video on relays ! VEHICLE RELAYS Operation Diagnosis

Starter does not engage when key is turned to start

assuming battery fully charged hook test lite between good groud and small starter terminal have somebody to crank if lits chek power and ground to starter and replace starter if no lit go to starter relay terminal 30 and 87 use a piece off wire and momentarily bridge them if starter bumps the engine check terminals 85 86 one is power when cranking the other is ground if starter bumps and test lit hooked to 85 86 lits replace relay if no lite keep tracing ckt to ignition switch

My heater/air conditioning fan stopped blowing. Checked fuses, they are fine. No power to fan.

cooling fan relay could be bad,check relay by making a fuse jumper wire.look at the relay control circuits on relay look for control circuits terminal number 85 and terminal 86 hook fuse jumper wire terminal 85 on relay to good ground and take terminal 86 on relay hook up a jumper wire touch battery positive terminal relay should click if not, relay bad.

Have a ford f 350 2004 model manual ****** motor wont turn over replaced clutch safety switch ck starter relays can b pull started

Did you check for power at the starter ignition terminal? It is the small YELLOW/BLACK wire on the starter. If there is power there, replace the starter. If there is no power there, you should check your starter relay an its associated fuses.
The relay primary side is protected by fuse number F2.31 (15 Amp) in the Central Junction Box. This fuse provides power to the clutch safety switch on the WHITE/PINK wire. Then the power leaves the clutch safety switch on the TAN/RED wire and goes to pin 86 on the relay.

The relay secondary side is protected by fuse number F2.113 (30 Amp) in the Central Junction Box. It provides power at pin 30 on the relay, which is also located in the Central Junction Box.

Pin 87 at the relay is the YELLOW/BLACK wire metioned earlier and goes to the starter motor.
Pin 85 at the relay is the primary GROUND. This should be ground at all times.

The ENTIRE starting system can be checked/diagnosed from the pins at the starter relay if you use the correct methods and equipment.

My daughter replaced the starter in her 93 carivan and now it won't start. It turs over but start. She said there is no spark either at the #1 plug

First check to see if the fuel pump comes on when you first turn on the key. You should hear the pump come on. If not then look in the fuse/relay panel under the hood for the ASD relay (auto shutdown relay). To test the relay, remove it from the fuse/relay panel. Using a ohm meter check the resistance between 85 and 86. there should be 70-80 ohms. Check the continuity between terminals 30 and 87a. The meter should show continuity. Check the continuity between 30 and 87. the meter should not have no continuity. Connect a jumper from the negative post on the battery to 85,then connect another jumper from positive post to terminal 86.This will actuates the relay. Recheck terminals 30 and 87; this should indicate continuity. If the relay did not pass this test i described to you then replace the relay. Hope this will help you.

It has no power to coil and the voltage to the tps and iat and temp sensors is to high 5.4 volts allready replaced the pcm

Check the (automatic shutdown relay) in the power distribution center for power when the key is in the on position. It controls the power to the coil,fuel pump,injectors,oxygen sensor. To check the relay, remove it from the panel. check the location of #30 corresponding to location of pin on relay. using a test light check to see if you have power on panel. Should have voltage, then check #86 on panel with the key on. It should have power. If no power then check for a blown fuse. Connect an ohm meter to the relay on terminal 86 and 85 and check the resistance. there should be 75 ohms resistance. Then check for continuity between terminals 30 and 87. There should be no continuity. Using jumper wires connect battery voltage to terminal 86 and ground terminal 85 to verify that there is continuity between terminals 87 and 30. If there isn't, replace the relay. Hope this will help you.

to check a starter relay you need to remove relay from fuse/relay panel. then with a ohm meter check for continuity between terminal 87a and 30 for continuity. and then check between terminals 87 and 30, there should be no continuity between 87 and 30. you will have continuity between 87a and 30. if this all checks out then check for resistance between 85 and 86. it should read 70-80 ohms. if this all checks out then rig up a jumper wire from positive post on battery to terminal 86 and ground terminal 85. the relay should click. if not then replace it with new relay.

fuse 8 40a supplies power to starter relay and ignition switch, to close the starter solenoid and engage the starter which draws directly from the battery. check to see that the starter relay is closing, if not ensure that the park neutral switch is not faulty (open circuit), it provides path to close relay (ground side) on the 85 - 86 terminals. if the starter relay does not close the starter will not run. if you have a spare relay swap out the relay for a quick fix attempt. hope this helps
