Question about 2005 Chrysler Town & Country

1 Answer

Is the radiator fan the same as the cooling fan?

I posted yesterday that I heard the fan on in my 2005 T&C when I went out to the garage in the AM. I pulled the fuse, it went off, and has been ruiing ok since then. The warning light remains on though.

I am wondering is the radiator fan is the same as the cooling fan? I want to know so that I don't sound like an idiot if I take the van in for service.

The cooling fan is used to cool the radiator.
There is a sensor that turns the fan 'on' if the radiator gets too hot. A light comes 'on' to tell you the fan is 'on'.

If the fan ran all night the sensor is bad and the (sorry for the pun) the idiot light is on to tell everyone something is wrong and it needs service.
DON"T run your car with out the fan!

Why does my 05 tahoe cooling fans operate randomly?


I'm not sure of the location on your vehicle but, normally mounted somewhere on the radiator, there is a TEMPERATURE SWITCH, which activates the cooling fans. If this switch is failing, it will activate the fans, as if the vehicle is hot.
On the other hand, if your garage reaches 120+ degrees, the fans WILL turn on.

I do not understand what your problem is so i will try to see if i can tell you what i think you are saying, the car is leaking coolant from the radiator, if this is correct then replace radiator. or is the coolant spilling out because engine temp is overheating , if the engine is overheating this will cause the ac system not to cool down and make the cold air hot due to the condensor not cooling,

The first step is to repair any leaks and also make sure the radiator fan turns on to cool engine, when you turn on the a/c the fansss will run, if they do not then have the fans checked.

Probably a cooling fan issue or maybe a stuck thermostat.. change thermostat and check that cooling fans engage..good luck...also when you fill up the resorvoir let it be for a while and check to see if level is down, sometimes it takes a while for water to seep into radiator, i assume you dont have a radiator cap?
