The fans are turned on by the PCM, if the PCM is not telling the fans to turn on, they won't even if everything tests fine.

I had a problem similar to this. The cheap fix is to replace the Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor. This will have two wires that come into a wiring harness located near your thermostat housing. It sounds like there is a problem with your sensor to PCM operation. This would cause your fans not to operate when the coolant was reaching temperature. If this doesn't fix the problem, I would look into a new PCM (mine ended up being the PCM itself).

I have a 2005 Chrysler 300C hemi and the malfunction indicator light came on. What should I do?


The malfunction indicator light(mil) can come on, if there is a problem in
1 or more of the vehicle's systems. Such as fuel/electrical or emissions.
To isolate the problem, the car needs to be scanned with an OBD II
(onboard diagnostic)scanner. You can stop by any of the auto parts chain store's(advance/auto zone/napa)and they will scan it for free.
Hope this helps.
