Question about 1999 Chrysler Town & Country

1 Answer

I noticed today after being home for about 3 or 4 hours that my radiator fan was still running. I disconnected the battery to try to reset the computer and when I went to reconnect the battery the fan came back on. So I have been told its the relay switch. Now my question is how hard is this to replace by a female that is not real mechanically inclined. I know I need to remove the airfilter housing and that the relay is on the side wall of the car but thats about it for my knowledge of this.. I am leaving for Atlanta Fri so kinda in a rush to do this..

Disconnect the electrical at the top. Sometimes you can get the fan out and then the shroud-due to limited space. They would both come out from the top.
We mechanics will tell you to test the fan motor with jumper wires from the battery before you decide to pull it off. On most cars, the computer turns the fan on through a cooling fan relay. On your '87, it is possible that a thermal switch on the radiator may turn the fan relay on at a set temperature. One would have to see a wiring diagram.

Just looked at a diagram: If your car is fuel injected, check fuse #13, a 15 amp blue fuse. And same if carbureted, fuse #13-this fuse is for the relay and the fan motor. If carbureted, also check fuse #20-a 20amp fuse.
There are no computer controls for the fan on an '87. there is a thermo switch-at a set temperature, the switch will close-completing the ground path for the fan motor. There is also a radiator fan timer switch, tied in with the thermo switch and the air temperature sensor.
Sound complicated? Well, it is, even with no computer controls. If the fan motor is good, check or replace the thermo switch. Be sure and check those fuses, also. If no help, a tech will probably have to diagnose it.

My 2004 Xg350 is stuck in limp home mode.

code p1155 refers to electronic throttle system (ETS)- malfunction===causes --wiring--ETS limp home valve

code p1193 refers to ETS -limp home valve --on===causes --Low RPM
code p0302 refers to cylinder 2 misfire detected===causes--engine mechanical fault--wiring---ignition/ fuel system---injector---ECT/MAF sensor---ECM.
Pulling a battery lead to reset is a waste of time as it corrupts the CPU program. Use a code reader to reset . It is quicker and doesn't run the risk of program corruption

hi there,you should take your car to a radiator shop and have them clean the radiator.To do this they dismantle it and clean all the tubes etc.This is not a job to do at home.They radiator electric fan shoud not run all the time only when it is switched on by the water temp switch which could be faulty.It sounds most likely that your problem is more associated with a partially blocked radiator.

The thermostat on the radiator opens by heat automatically. The fan switch is run by the Engine temp Sensor and the ECM. If your fan is not running it is most likely a problem with the fan or the Temp sensor, I would look at the fan first.

Radiator fan does not go on some times.

Probably a faulty relay or fan on it's way out. Check with key off, battery disconnected & see if it wobbles or is hard to turn at all. Should move freely. Relay should be labeled in power distribution box, or fuse/relay box under hood.

Electric cooling fans run constantly even after vehicle is off

Try diconnecting the two wires on the temp sensor at the bottom of the radiator, you may be able to trace the wires from the fan, it that stops the fan, then replace the sensor and it should be ok
