Question about 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan
We were in a minor accident with some damage to the bumber. The fan relay has come loose but doesn't look damaged and the wires seem fine. But the fans kept running long enough while my wife was at work to kill the battery. Also after jump starting the van and charging the battery the relay gets hot to the touch with the van off. I am hoping someone knows the voltages of the 4 wires that run into the relay or if the relay getting hot is a sign of it being bad now.
Probably the relay contacts have been shorted out.
Replace it ($12) from an auto supply store (AutoZone)...
I believe that the A/C or Headlight Relay switches are the same as the fan relay, test one to see if it fixes the problem.
Hope this helps!

Although the accident may have not damaged the relay physically, it is run by the BCM (body control module) which is very common to fail or surge voltages after collisions.
go to www.alldatadiy.com and register you vehicle specifics. Then find the wiring schematic and flow chart for the symptoms you are having. You'll be able to find all of the info you seek there.
Hope that helps.
