You have located the fan i take it, just follow the wire harness from the radiator fan assemble to the chaise. There's going to ba clip along the wire harness that can be un clipped and you can run a hot wire from the battery to the wire harness or you can test the wire harness from the chaises with a volt meter for power. You may also want to check the fuse and relays under the hood in the fuse box close to the battery. Good luck and hope this helps, Keep me posted, be glad to help.

Tip

How to test and replace radiator cooling fan.


Hi.

Here a tip illustrating steps to test and replace the radiator cooling fan and the parts that may cause cooling fan malfunctioning.

Before replacing the fan, make sure that the fan is really faulty.
Read volts at fan contacts or jump the fan wiring to energize the fan directly.Ensure that fan blades are not blocked.

If the fan is OK, then the faulty part is either thermostat or fan relay.Ensure also that you have tested the 15A fuse in the junction block and the 40A fuse located in the Power distribution Center (PDC).

Here a diagram showing the location of the fan relay:

Finally, here below the steps required to replace the fan. The procedure is quite simple.

  • Disconnect the battery negative cable and set it apart.
  • Disconnect the electrical connector to the radiator fan.
  • Undo the bolts that hold the top fan housing and fan assembly (this is called Radiator Shroud).
  • Remove the Radiator Shroud housing.The radiator shroud will come out with the fan sliding toward the top side.
  • Install the new fan performing the operations in reverse order.

Here a diagram showing radiator shroud and cooling fan assembly:

I have a 2001 Dodge Durango. The radiator fan continues to run after turning off the vehicle. I have disconnected the battery to keep it from draining the battery overnight. Is this a thermostat problem...


There is a coolant temperature sensor that signals the fan to come on at a certain temperature, the coolant temperature sensor is faulty, change it and you will have resolved the issue.

ENGINE OVERHEATING


Do the fans come on when the engine overheats? If so nothing wrong with the circuit and the thermostat(not thermo switch!) or radiator is to blame.
Test the fan. There are 2(if you have A/C fitted) Disconnect the electrical plug from the fan. Run 2 wires from the battery straight to the fan and see if the fan comes on. (Be careful when connecting not to short circuit the wires. Theres a lot of power in the battery!) Polarity does not matter. This is a direct current motor so reverse polarity will only make the fan turn in the wrong direction. If the fan turns reconnect its electrical connection and move to the next step.
To test the fan circuit locate the thermo switch. It is on the bottom right of the radiator and has 2 wires connected. disconnect the electrical plug and short circuit the 2 wires by inserting a piece of wire into the connector with the ignition on. The fan should come on. If it does the thermo switch is at fault and needs replacing.
With the electrical sorted there is not much else. Like I mentioned it is either the radiator(blocked) or the thermostat(sticking)
Radiator can be taken to a service centre and have them clean it out for you. The thermostat cannot be repaired and needs to be replaced. It can be removed and the engine will still operate, but just take longer to warm up. I'm not sure on the '99 model, but it is usually located on the right hand side of the engine at the bottom on the water pump housing.

Front blower for ac is not working. what could be


Disconnect the blower motor connector behind the glovebox. Using a test light check for power to plug with the a/c fan switch on. If you have power on the plug then the motor has gone out. Make sure that all connections are connected. Hope this will help you.

My 2001 Dodge Durango starts fine idols down fine to 600rpms but for the first 20-30 seconds after takeoff something is reving very high then stops. Does anyone no what it could be? Someone mentioned to me...


Dealership experience plus ownership tells me this is indeed your fan clutch. This is nornal to a certain degree. You will find this is more prevailant during colder temps.Due to fluid in the coupling being more viscious. In my opinion, if the noise from the fan pushing air at full force, even though coolant and engine is cold, lasts more than 10 seconds, have fan cluth replaced. Be aware that this noise is completely normal during elevated coolant/engine temps, obviously to cool the Radiator/engine. To replace....... protect radiator from damage from fan .Fan and clutch unscrew together, LEFT HAND THREAD. Big nut. Tool avail. to rent. @ auto parts. Engage spanner with nut , hit other end of spanner with big mallet to loosen. Swap your good fan with new clutch .Reverse procedure to install.

My 2001 dodge durango is overheating an leaking coolant from a round plug type thing in the corner on the passenger side near the windshield


What exactly is the "round plug type thing" near the firewall [passenger side]? Is it a sensor of some type? I, too, have a coolant leak here on my 2001 Durango; its tucked in rather tightly near the hood/firewall corner. My electric fan is not kicking on; vehicle overheated tonight. (4.7 liter)

2001 Jeep Cherokee Laredo- electrical fan


Have you tested the fan, use a set of clip leads and supply 12 volts of battery power to the fan to see if it runs, another test is to disconnect the engine coolant temp fan switch, this sends the system into default and the fan will run.
