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.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

You could try the linkage cable from the shifter(under the hood). It could be alot of things. Is it auto or manual trans? And what do you mean by wont shift? Is the the shifter moving from P,R,N,D, ect... or the transmission is not shifting into a higher gear?

What causes the fan not to turn on when it gets hot why at idel theromstat has been changed. This is on a 2006 Chysler PT crusier

I would suspect the thermal switch in the rad. It turns the fans on and off. Driving this time of year would easily keep everything cool enough so the fans didn't have to turn on. This would be why the problem only shows up at idle. Hope this helps.

My horn quit honking on my 2006 chrysler pt crusier..

find the horn ,it should be at the front possibly behind the bumper ,run a wire direct to it and see it works ,if it does work then its the wiring in the steering wheel ,but as this vehicle no doubt has an air bag then entrust this job to a garage because if you get it wrong the air bag will explode ,expensive job to say the least
