Question about 2008 Chrysler Pt Cruiser
There are several possibilities, ranging from faulty fan motor, open/short in wiring, faulty control module or relay.
Check fuse #12 in the instrument panel fuse box.Next, check fuse #5 in power distribution box in the engine compartment. Also, check the 2 fan relays in the power distribution box. If you don't have a DVOM(digital voltmeter), you can swap the relays out with another one for testing purposes:
Replace fuses/relays as necessary.
If fuses and relays are ok, then check fan motor itself. If you have a DVOM, disconnect fan motor connector and test for 12v at connector. IF 12v present, then fan motor is bad.
If you don't have a voltmeter, then you can run jumper wires from the battery to the fan motor. If fan motor does'nt run with 12v battery source to it, then fan motor is bad.
If you fan motor runs with 12v source hooked to it, or if tested with DVOM, 12v not present, then further tests are needed. A diagnostic scanner will be needed to test the PCM (powertrain control module), and then test for open/short in wiring harness
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
