Radiator fan not working on my 1997 T&C van. I've replaced the radiator fan relay and even the wire harness. Still not fan. It has now lost power and A/C is not working well I assume due to...

IASounds like the radiator fan motor is bad (not uncommon for a chrysler product)
You can replace the fan motor (DIY) for around $100 (oreily autoparts) or the the entire fan assembly for around $300 (DYI) .
Replacing the fan motor will take about 2-3 hours.....taking out the fan assembly will consume most of your time.
hoppe this helps.

Engine temp gauge reading hot, no leaks in system. Heater does not work most of the time. only blows cold air.

Make sure there is no blockage in front of radiator or condenser coil. It seems like the cooling fan clutch may be quitting. When the fan clutch is working properly, if you turn the fan with your hand when the engine is cold, it should turn freely, if you do it after driving the vehicle when the engine is HOT, the fan would be pretty stiff and should not turn free at all. By the year of the vehicle, I believe that's where the problem is.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa!!

Overheating after 5 miles of driving. Fan not running

If she paid someone to replace her radiator she should take it back. There are temperature relays around the fan I believe and the fans are not working. These are right in the area of the radiator. Someone must have disconnected the fan or the relays were failing before the radiator was working. Either way, the car is not cooling and she sought a solution to that problem. She was charged and the problem is worse. Go back to the radiator place.

Electric fans do not work do you have any ideas my car runs very hot fans never seem to come on

Electric radiator fans? Just a guess but it could be the water thermostat. They are very inexpensive but you may have to drain and refill the radiator. If the water will not flow though the radiator it will not cool the engine. This is the function of the thermostat which is inline to the water pump and allows the engine to warm up before cooling through the radiator then when the fan thermostat on the radiator heats up the electric fans will run. You might be able to squeeze the upper radiator hose to feel if pressure is building up or water is flowing.

Overheating and have replaced clucth fan themostat water pump and radiator cap. FOUND A COUPLE PEOPLE WITH same problems and put bigger radiator in it a fixed it, WHAT you think

Sounds like a blown head gasket. Try running it with the cap off,while COLD & see if coolant starts pumping all over the place. Do not do this while hot!!! Serious injury will occur. The other way is if you have access to an emission tester you can stick the sniffer just above the coolant in the radiator & if you get a co reading,you got a bad head gasket. Lastly, check the oil dipstick & filler cap for white goo,dead give away for a head gasket.

Radiator fan runs when car is cold but not hot

Try running a scan.

There must be a sensor problem though.

Radiator Fan continuously running with engine off, discharging battery

It is not the fault: for long time Renault has that concept, that is to prevent engine oveheating when coolant circulation is suddenly stopped.

Radiator fan can continue to work up to 10 minutes after engine is off. You should worry about it only if it wouldn't stop even after 10 minutes.

Battery and Brake light on, fans stop

Engine was running too hot, thermostat s/b 180, it was 195, antifreeze solution had too much water, this caused the radiator thermal switch to trip. I think the alternator was either bad, or the excessive heat made it draw too much. Two separate problems.
