Radiator fan relay switchlocation


Well the fan relay is in the fuse box next to the battery. The coolant temp sensor tells the computer what the engine temp is and the computer grounds the relay when the fan is needed.

I have a 1998 Didge Caravan and for some reason the cooling fans will not shut off? Any ideas??


This is a general ideaof how it works. A temp sensor is attached on the engine. When the sensor determines that it needs cooling it send a turn on signal to the ECM or directly to a relay. The sensor using small amounts of current to turn on a larger amount of current to run the fan/fans. This is also shared by the air condioning system which turns on the fans to cool for A/C. Three possibilities: The temp sensor is stuck on/shorted or the rely is shorted or A/C switch is shorted. Most times the switch shorts to ground to activate the the fans. For example the engine temp turn on shorts to ground to cause the fans to come on. If the sensor is shorted all the time it is bad. You can trouble shoot with an OHM meter if your up to it or a good honest mechanic can easly find you problem. Good Luck

If you have checked the relay module under the fans,on drivers side,and they are fine,replace the coolant sensor,and make sure all the air is bled out of the cooling system.

Electric cooling fans will work.


The fans are actuated by coolant temp in the radiator. It is possible to have overheated coolant in the radiator, causing the steam, and your engine not overheating...the temp sensor for your engine is reflecting the engine temp, not the temp of the coolant in the radiator. You problem could be a bad temp sensor at the radiator...not allowing the fans to come on. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!

1999 dodge caravan overheating while stationary no running fan


Check under hood on drivers side for relay/fuse box. They are labeled on underside of cover. If that turns up o.k. then I'd look at coolant temperature sensor.
