Raditor fan problem

On a 1998 Chrysler Town & Country, 3.8 L, rear A/C, the radiator cooling fans do not turn on even when the A/C is on. The l.e.d.s on the climate control panel flash possibly indicating a fault. The thermostat and the thermostatic fan switch by the thermostat has been changed. Fuses are good. I was unable to find the fan relay. The Cooling fans have bben hooked up to the battery and work fine. I have been unable to find a schematic to determine which module is reposible for the function. I heard that was a recall on similar vehicles but don't have the money to bring it to a shop. Any body know where to get a truly free schematic?

My radiator cooling fans have no power and the 40 amp fan fuse is good, what's wrong?

There are many things that can cause your radiator fans to not get power. However, the most common cause is the fan control module. Some people call it a "fan control relay", (including many aftermarket parts retailers) but it is actually a solid state control module, not a relay.

Check for power in and out of the module. It is best if you have access to a scan tool that has system test capabilities so you can command the fans to turn on with the computer. Otherwise, you will have to get your engine really hot and see if the power is being sent from the control module to the fan motors.

The fan control module is located on the inside of the left frame rail (driver's side) just behind the radiator. You will have to get under the vehicle to see it. It looks like the picture below.

I rearended someone and bent my radiator in. It's not leaking but the cooling fan does not turn on now. Does the radiator need to be replaced or the fan? If it's the radiator, is it possible to change...

It is recommended that you replace both the radiator and the fan. I would also probably take it to a body shop have then straighten anything with the body, then replace the radiator yourself. That way you know when you go to put the new radiator in that all the holes line up and everything will find without rubbing.
