Our 1999 dodge grand caravan radiator fans don't come on and our van overheats. we have to hot wire the fans directly to the battery. We also need to know where the relay is


it may be the temperature sensor that activates the fans is faulty & needs to be replaced or it could be a loose wire or connection check the wiring & connectors......hope this helps......cheers.

I have a 97 dodge grand caravan that has a cooling fan problem. I have replaced the fans, radiator, col temp sens, fan relay, fuses and the fan still does not come on. i did notice the previous owner cut...


Make sure the fans are well grounded. You can temporarily jump 12 volts from the battery to the fans in order to check if they work. The new relay also could have been compromised if the wiring was incorrect before.

'97 dodge grand caravan engine is off and there is a fan like noise still on? what could this be?


That would be the cooling fans which do tend to run a minute or two after engine shuts off.
This is nothing to worry about and is quite normal, unless it runs for a very long time and runs down the battery. In this case, the fan relay should be replaced.

check fuses and relay to fan, if not it, check wiring to fans.
