Question about Chrysler LeBaron
It could be a blown fuse,check the fuses in the fuse box under the hood,it also could be the temperature sensor that activates the fan is faulty or it could be a loose wire or a bad connection,the fan should have a connector plug on it so as it can be disconnected if it needs to be replaced pull that connector apart & check for corrosion,if it is a one wire connector run a wire from the positive terminal to the connector, if the fan is OK it will run if it has two wires run another one from the neg . terminal of the batt. check all other connector plugs.....hope this helps.....cheers

SOURCE: radiator cooling fan
The sensor thats screw in the intake is bad.Thats what reads the temperature and turns the fan on.There should be a couple of sending units that are screwed in the intake around the thermostat housing.Its a two wire.You may have to follow the wires from the fan to it or you can when getting the new sensor match it or have them give you a print out of where its at.I hpoe this is helpful for you.Have A Great Day...

Check you fan test the rad fans on a hot wire from the battery.If it runs with direct connection from battery that means fan is actually working but any of the other fan connecting parts internally are not letting the fan to work.But if fan does not work when you manually test it by connecting it to 12 volt battery then ,yes the fan is faulty and it needs to be replaced.But if fan isa working then the other parts to be checked are
fan relay.Sounds like you need a new fan relay. This relay is NOT in the fuse/relay box under the hood. It is bolted to the radiator support, under the air filter box.
Actually there are many other users facing this same problem Due to faulty fan relay.It was a recall by Chrysler voyager company ,because many of the users face the same problem.But the recall was for the car made in the year 1996.But your problem is same as that.I will mention what company has mentioned in its service bulletin:------
There was a Recall on the fan relay:------
Radiator Fan Motor - Relay Operation
DATE: Oct. 25, 1996
Radiator Fan Relay Operation
1996 - 1997 (NS) Town & Country/Caravan/Voyager
1996 - 1997 (GS) Chrysler Voyager (International Market)
Conditions related to the radiator fan relay may result in the radiator fans not turning "ON" or not turning "OFF" as designed.
The screws that mount the relay to the left front frame rail may break causing the relay to overheat and turn off because it no longer has heat sinking capability to the frame rail. If broken radiator fan relay screws are found, they must be replaced with revised screw P/N 06035202. Also, the relay may have been damaged because of the overheating (but may still be functioning) caused by the lack of heat sinking and should be replaced.
Some vehicles may have an intermittent interference condition between the radiator fan blade(s) and the fan shroud that causes a high current draw that will fail the radiator fan relay. The relay can fail in an open condition preventing the fan motors from running and causing the engine to overheat. The relay can fail in a closed condition causing the radiator fans to continue to run with the ignition switch turned "OFF". If a failed radiator fan relay is found, it must be replaced with revised relay P/N 04886288AA AND screws P/N 06035202. Revised relay P/N 04886288AA has a higher current capacity that is able to handle the extra current draw related to the intermittent radiator fan/shroud interference.
A small number of vehicles may have corrosion develop in the radiator fan relay connector. On vehicles with this condition, the radiator fan relay connector should be replaced using pigtail service package P/N 04897034AA. So as per your problem mentioned i think its a relay for radiator fan,that has to be replaced.The cost of new relay is near to $80.Replace the relay and it will work. On some Chrysler car models the relay is inside the engine bay bolted to front of the engine bay behind the bumper under the main air filter housing.Its fitted with 2 bolts.Just follow the fan wires.it connects to the relay.But if your relay checks out ok and working then,Problem is related to pcm. power train conrol module not sending a "turn me on signal" to the relay. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

The thermostat is probably bad on your vehicle, these are cheap and easy to replace. It should be located under the gooseneck (where the top radiator hose goes to on the motor). The neck is usually held down by two bolts. Once you have that removed the thermostat sits inside of it. Here's a picture of one so you know what you're looking for http://www.2carpros.com/images/articles/engine/cooling/thermostat/engine_therrmostat.jpg
If you want to check the fuses, they should be located under the dash on the driver side or inside one of the door jams on the side of the dash. There should be a diagram labeling what each fuse is for. You can pull a fuse out (they're in there pretty good) and hold it up in the light to see if it's blown. If the little wire inside the fuse is split, then it's blown.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
If you have overheating problem, it can lead to multiple
issues. You may be running on low coolant that's why the vehicle overheats. If
that's the case, please add coolant and make sure that it sits on the right
level, too much coolant can cause overheating too for coolant will overflow.
The vehicle may have a faulty or worn out radiator blower
motor that's why it overheats. If that's the case then you will need a blower
motor replacement to resolve the issue.
If the radiator is clogged with dirt and rusts this issue
occurs too. The coolant doesn't flow normally on the cooling system if it's
clogged. If that's the case, I strongly suggest that you have the radiator
flushed to drain out dirt and rusts. If you think that the radiator served you
enough then it's better to have it replaced.
Please do check the radiator hoses, If you have worn out
hoses it can cause coolant leakage which can result to overheating. A tiny hole
is good enough for the vehicle to overheat.
A faulty thermostat sensor can cause the issue too. If you
have worn out thermostat, the fan may not trigger that's why the fan won't work
when under stressed conditions. A blown radiator blower fuse can cause this
issue too so I suggest that you check the radiator blower fuse and replace it
when necessary. What causes the radiator blower fan fuse to blow? It's because
of a failing radiator blower motor, If that's the case have the radiator blower
fan motor replaced.
If the fluid in radiator doesn't circulate then it means
that you have a blown head gasket or a faulty water pump. I suggest that you go
for the water pump replacement first specially if you think that it's near the
end of it's service life. Usually, water pops out the radiator when engine is
reved (a sign of faulty water pump and possible blown head gasket).
Hope you find this information helpful enough and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
