OK put it back to the way it was and start from scratch jump the fan from the battery if it comes on fan is good if not replace it if it does come on check temp sensor mounted somwhere on intake if not there in bottom of radiator and replace that good luck never run coolant fan to ignion you have to run a sepreate switch with a positive and negative from the fan

Why does my 2001 pt cruiser has blue wires on the radiator fan motor


Because that's the color they chose when designing the car. When you look at a wiring schematic each wire is a different color, or has stripes or dashes so you can identify it in the car.

Is there a specific reason you are asking about the color of the wire to the fan?

Tip

Car Over Heating!! Simple Temporary FIX to get you home.


We ,, well most of us have had our cars over heat at times, and sometimes in places that we wish id didnt happen. I will detail a few tricks here to get you on your way or back home safely.

Why do cars over heat?

Simply because it gets too hot!!, There are several reasons for this ,
1.) radiator has no water
2.) radiator is leaking
3.) Thermostat isnt working
4.) Fan isnt working

If your radiator has no water then u have to shut the car off. Use cool water and pour over the radiator cover until it gets cool to your touch (NEVER OPEN A HOT RADIATOR, PRESSURE BUILDS WITH THE HOT WATER AND IT WILL EXPLODE OUT AND BURN YOU). when its cold enough for you to touch, use a damp cloth to open the radiator cap, keeping your face clear of it, Start your engine, and add water to the radiator. (Dont Add Water To a hot engine without starting it)

If your radiator is leaking then allow it to cool a bit and follow the above instructions to get it opened. Crack an egg (whole egg without shell) in the radiator before adding water. (keep engine running) the egg solidifies in the hole and plugs it enough to get you home. If you plan to repair the radiator, u must flush it out first to get rid of the egg and other contents before welding.

The thermostat!!
If this isnt working propperly the fan wont turn on, follow the instructions for the fan below.

Fan aint working
Look closely at the fan you will find you will see a tube of 2 / 3 wires connecting to its motor. it connects there via a clip. unclip it. there will be 2 wires sometimes 3 . One of them is a positive (blue,brown,red) and the other is a ground (black or black stripe) cut them , use extra wires and connect them to the positive and negative of your battery terminals. The ground can also be placed on the body of the vehicle.Remember to disconnect these wires when you get home or it will drain your battery.

There you have it. A few simple to help get you home safely in the event your vehicle overheats.

Installing new radio


Factory in-dash wire harness that
snaps into the factory radio.

Note:
using an optional snap on wire harness adapter will simplify the wiring. Most snap on
wire harness adapters have already converted and color coded the wires from the auto
makers in dash wire harness to match typical aftermarket radio wire colors.
** The wire colors listed in the chart above are typical for these vehicles during these years
but may not be the exact colors for this vehicle. This is another reason to use a snap on
wire harness adapter. **
