If the fan is in front of the ac condensor, turn the ac off
if the fan is used to cool the radiator, ( from the engine side ) there is a very high risk of burning the motor
I would rather trailer the vehicle than pay for another motor

Will it hurt my durango without the electric fan working?


Hi, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.

If your 1999 Durango has a mechanical fan and an electric fan then this is what they are used for. The mechanical fan should you have one is used for the engine coolant to keep the engine from overheating. While the electric fan is used for the A/C System to keep the pressure from getting to high and damaging the A/C Compressor. NOTE: In this cases scenario with no relay the A/C system would not work properly. BUT, if you only have an electric fan then the engine would overheat because it works both systems. Hope this helps and please visit my auto-repair-website at: http://www.bigasautorepair.com/

Both fan not working after hit by a deer(fan makes contact with radiator)


Yes,replace the fan clutch,don't want to get it all back together and not work cause you didn't replace fan clutch.Your water pump may have been damaged also,I hit a deer and did major damage too,had to replace water pump,the fan is connected to it.

My 2003 dodge durango keeps overheating , i just had new radiator put in and it started overheating again but now it is overheating with a very loud screeching noise like a belt sound what could be ca


as for noise will have to inspect under hood,could be fan or belt or pulley ,water pump .these are some things it could...My suggestion for overheating is replace thermostat. If your car has electric cooling fan then it may not be working..turn defrost on and if fan kicks on then fan motor is good..Now this does not mean that fan is working properly because fan is controlled by heat sensor switch that kicks fan on when motor reaches heat range......Things i would have checked....hope this information helps and good luck and Please rate my post...

I own a 2003 Dodge Durango. The coolant fan stopped working. I found a plug loose near the fan. Is it possible it came unplugged? If yes, then is the plug inside the fan case? I have looked all over and...


I couldn't find the plug or wire on the diagram on my online resource, either. The fan must have a cable going to it to operate, somehow, though, I agree.
Engine Cooling Fan Removal & Installation To Remove:
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions at the beginning of this section.
  2. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • Negative battery cable dod_trk_reminstviscousfan.gif

    • Fan blade/viscous fan drive assembly from water pump by turning mounting nut counterclockwise as viewed from front - threads on viscous fan drive are right hand. CAUTION
      Do not attempt to remove fan/viscous fan drive assembly from vehicle at this time.
      Do not unbolt fan blade assembly from viscous fan drive at this time.
