Question about 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser
I see that you have replaced the relay, but the fan motors themselves go bad all the time
The first place to check is the 40 Amp fuse in the under hood power distribution center near the battery and be sure that it has not blown, it is fuse number 10
If it is good and the relay is good (some of the non factory replacement relays just do not work correctly) then when the Jeep has sat a while and is cool, start the Jeep and turn the A/C to max and watch the cooling fan, it should come on within a couple of minutes (provided that the A/C is in working condition) if it does not come on then the fan motor itself may be bad, if the A/C is not working you will have to allow the Jeep to reach around 210 to 220 for the fan to come on
Once you have the Jeep to the point that the fan should be running,if it is not running, unplug the fan motor connector on the passengers side of the fan shroud and check for power at the Dark green wire (should be battery voltage) and check for ground at the black wire with a pink tracer, if you have power and ground then the fan motor will need to be replaced .
Be very careful when doing this test as the Engine will be running and things will be moving, also the Radiator and surrounding items will get very hot
A note is that the fan may run but turn very slow and not draw enough air through the cooling module to keep the cruiser cool, if the fan does come on it should be spinning so fast that you can not see the blades, and if you put a couple pieces of paper across the grille it should pull them onto the grille and hold them in place
Thanks for contacting Fixya
