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...

SOURCE: radiator fan doesn´t work. i would

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
NO: 08-34-96
GROUP: Electrical
DATE: Oct. 25, 1996
SUBJECT:
Radiator Fan Relay Operation
MODELS:
1996 - 1997 (NS) Town & Country/Caravan/Voyager
1996 - 1997 (GS) Chrysler Voyager (International Market)
DISCUSSION:
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.

2002 Dodge caravan overheating, gage spikes up to hot, but were not seeing any fluid leaking besides when it gets hot steam comes from cap. found crack in radiator so we replaced and changed thermosta


I would check the fuses first then the fan relay , if you find two identical relays you just have to swap them to determine if there any good , if the fan starts working then get a new relay, if the fan still won't work then replace the fan thermo switch (usually located in the bottom part of the radiator facing the engine) if the fan still wont work then replace it. The best way to test the whole system out is to start the car and turn on the air conditioner (and blower fan) this should turn on both your fans, if the fans dont come on , check the fuses,relay and then fan motor then thermoswitch

I have a 99 saturn sl, my engine fan keeps going out cant pass service light on


I believe that the reason that your fan is staying on,and causing the fuse or fan motor to go out,is because you have an overheating problem. Which could be several things....water pump,radiator,thermostat,or blown head gasket.I would have the whole cooling system checked first. Secondly,where are you buying the fan motors at?

You probably have an electric radiator fan that isn't working properly. First thing to check would be fuses, then swap relays if no blown fuses are seen, and finally check at the fan connector for power. If everything is good, you need to replace the fan motor. It isn't very fun trying to figure out how to get the fan shroud/fan out. The 4 bolts holding it to the radiator are in the worst spots and it will prob take an hour or so to get the bolts out before you realize that it's super tight in there. Good luck

Car overheats when using air conditioner. fans work , new radiator,and thermostat


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

Cooling fan


Here are the cooling system diagnostic steps...First does the cooling fan kick on (with engine hot)? If not, check the fuse, if good then check the thermoswitch in the radiator (it's about an inch and a half in diameter located on the lower part of the radiator with two wires ) by disconnecting the wires and touching them together (again, with engine hot...at least 190 degrees) if the fan comes on, you have a bad switch. If not connect a 10 gauge jumper wire from the battery to the fan itself (there are three terminals,,, one high, one low and ground). With power direct from the battery (and a ground wire, if necessary) fan should run... if not replace the fan assembly... if it does run then you have a bad cooling fan relay (under the dash, I believe). Hope this helps... ;-)
