SOURCE: 97 dodge cooling fans stoped working

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.

I have a 97 dodge grand caravan that has a cooling fan problem. I have replaced the fans, radiator, col temp sens, fan relay, fuses and the fan still does not come on. i did notice the previous owner cut...


Make sure the fans are well grounded. You can temporarily jump 12 volts from the battery to the fans in order to check if they work. The new relay also could have been compromised if the wiring was incorrect before.

I took my 99 dodge grand caravan to advanced auto and got a computer readout of p1491 as the error code. is this important and is this expensive?


P1491 is Radiator Fan Control Relay Circuit. MEANING: An open or shorted condition detected in the low speed radiator fan control circuit.
Some questions for you:
1. Is your Caravan overheating?
2. Is your Caravan water temperature spiking going past the midway point on the Temp Gauge before the radiator is engaged?
3. Is your Rad Fan coming-on and then turning off and back-on in a very short period of time (like under a minute?
If all of these are "No" then do not worry about it.

Radiator fans wont turn on to cool radiator for 2001 dodge grand caravan


To check it run wires from the positive and negative battey posts directly to the fan motor connector. If it doesn’t run the fan motor is defective.

Ford Focus LX 2.0L 2003: radiator fan not working


This can be caused by a few things. First, the fan motor may be burned out or the temperature switch may be malfunctioning so the fan doesn't engage. The thermostat may also have gone out which prohibits the coolant to circulate through the engine and radiator thus cooling your engine.

I have 97 dodge caravan 3.0 and i put in a brand new radiator and thermostat.Now the cooling fans dont come on and fluid is bubbling up and coming out of the reservoir. But if I unplug the temp. sensor...


Not unusual to get big airlock if heater (not defrost) isn't on during bleeding process. I usually start vehicle, top up rad 1 " or so from top,turn heater on , then watch temperature gauge & wait for fan to come on after I see flow through rad indicating thermostat opened.(Normal operating temperature)I let it do that about 3 times before I put rad cap back on, after topping rad up to about an inch or 2 from top. Then fill coolant return bottle, to proper level. It may be your problem, but if your temperature gauge goes way up past normal operating temperature, before you see flow in rad, then maybe a faulty thermostat is the cause.
