You can wire the fan directly to the battery and put a switch to it and deity it on when you need it I've done it to four of my vehicle and two of my quads and it works great

Where is the dual fan relay for the radiator ?

The relay should be in the black box as well. If you have your owners manual it should tell you the location.

Check engine light on.overheats when a/c on at low speeds or idle

Does check engine go out at higher speeds? If not, what is the "CODE" (several parts places will read your codes at no cost (AutoZone, Advance Auto, and others). If the light goes out at higher speeds, I would suspect that your electrical radiator fan isn't coming on when needed.

My jeep overheats if i idle for too long. as long as i am going down the road it doesnt overheat.

Sounds like your cooling fan is not doing it's job while you're stopped. While you're driving, the air rushing past the radiator is cooling the engine. The fan is supposed to pull air through the radiator while you're stopped so it has to be defective. Have it looked at.

Re 97 dodge caravan, car overheats when aircon is on

check coolent level, Radiator fans should come on after a few mins when ac is turned on. On my 97it takes about 1 to 1.5 min. fans should come on and stay on but the computer controls the speed of them. Other things a water pump going out? Is the serpintine belt that drives all the pullys " streched out" the tensoner will only go so far. and last compressor my be on the wayout. but would not cause it to overheat.

Van overheats when in idle with ac on

There are 2 fans in the front of this van. One will run almost the whole time that the engine is running. The other will only come on when the engine reaches a certain temperature when the a/c is off. When the a/c is on then both fans should run all the time. The fan relay is usually the problem in this situation. Evin though the secondary fan may come on some That does not mean that it is on the whole time that the a/c is on. If it is operating correctly then the motor may be week. Also be sure that the radiator and condenser coils are clean and free of leaves or debris between them. Hope this helps. good luck.

Radiator whines and overheats when not moving

Have someone flush cooling system & check condition of rad for debris in front of rad & blow or spray it out as necessary. Next time it runs hot, turn your heater temperature up high, blower fan on high, and see if gauge starts to come back down a little. If it does, my guess is your rad needs replacing, or at least consider trying a good reverse flushing of the system first, then rad.
