Aaaghhhh. you probably have an air bubble in the cylinder head. not good. poor as much antifreeze as you can into the rad (make sure the inside temperature is set to hot, that way any air in your heater core will be flushed through.) You need coolant to be in the hoses before you worry about the fan. Also, you can try "burping" the coolant system by filling up the vehicle (when its COLD) so that the coolant level is flush with the top of the rad. then place cap back on. start the motor. SLOWLY unscrew the cap to the half way mark. ensure not coolant squirting out. If okay, unscrew all of the way and check coolant level. fill as needed. try this, if you still can't get the fan to work, and you still don't have coolant circulating in the upper hose, here's my email

P1491 diagnostics code for 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee



Trouble Code: P1491 You PCM does not sense current to radiator fan when it turns it on. Is the fan coming on or not? Usually not when you have this code. Problem can be with the fuse, relay, wiring or fan itself. First check the fuse. If good, next try swapping the relay with another one in the engine compartment relay box, such as the horn relay.
Let the car warm up and see if the fan will come on. If yes, get a new relay. If not, either use a test light to see if there is voltage at the fan connector when the engine is on and hot, or else test the fan motor by hotwiring it to the battery. If none of this works, please get back to me for how to troubleshoot the wiring.

I just had the radiator fan relay replaced today because the fan would not shut off when I turned engine off. I had to pull fuse to stop fan.I Stopped for gas on way home from shop. When I restarted car,...


it sounds as if there might be a burned fuse. instead of replacing the rad fan relay i suppose they should have looked further. I'd be willing to bet they would find a faulty fan which in turn is taking out ur fuse or relay. With a faulty fan, it will require way more current to get it going then normal, overloading the circuit, blowing the fuse, or even, over loading the relay. I would be willing to bet now, you have a burned fuse due to a faulty rad fan.. good luck

98 Camero overheats when driving slow or stop, ok


You need to get the cooling fan checked,it may need a temperature sensor,fan relay or the fan motor may be burnt out.You can check the fan by running your own power and ground to the plug that comes out of the fan motor,unplug it and put the ground to the black wire and positive power to the other one,if it works then the next step would be to check the fan relay.The most common problem if the fan doesn't work but can be made to work with jumper wires is the temperature sensor,you can check it by unplugging it and jumping the wires in the plug.If the rad fans work then you are down to either the water pump or a plugged radiator,a rad shop should be able to narrow it down for you.

Where would I find the fan motor relay


The cooling fan relay on a 1996 to 2000 Plymouth Voyager The SSFR (Solid State Fan Relay) Cooling fan relay is located on the left front inner frame just behind the radiator. The radiator coolant fan relay is located on the inside front of the engine compartment near the left headlight assembly. You have to remove the air filter assembly, then look for a simple square relay with 4 wires running into it. It is mounted with 2 screws. It is the only relay at that location. If it has burned, you will need to replace the pigtail wiring harness.

Remove the air box beside the battery a 10 mm bolt and the relay is a four prong square box bolted on the frame with two 8mm bolts

Both radiator fans stopped working.


Fan relay is either behind driverside headlight or directly beneath that spot next to the radiator, does not look like a regular relay because it is electronic. Behind headlight it's riveted to body. Underneath it has a screw 7 or 8mm kind of hard to get to because of the air filter box and radiator. Common Problem with these vehicles. Turn on the a/c to test quickly after replacement but also make sure the temp sensor activates it about 15-20 minutes later.

My 1999 plymouth voyager van's radiator fan constantly on


There is a fan relay in the fuse box in the engine compartment. Usually that is the reason why it won't turn off. It fuses in the on position. If you have the manual it will say which one is the fan relay. just pull it out and get a new one. They are not expensive.

Hope this helps
