It might have a bad tempature sensor or a stuck thermostat .Faulty relays or a wiring issue I recently found a bad cooling fan plug on a 06 pt cruiser.You should first have it checked for computer codes it may show a code for the problem.

Procedure to release an air pocket in the cooling system. Hoping Fan runs! :P


Is there an air bleeder valve near or on the thermostat housing? Crack it open to see if air escapes.
Usually to remove air from cooling system, you keep the radiator cap off after filling, start the engine and wait until the thermostat opens and the car has reached normal operating temperature, then shut off engine, top up the radiator and the overflow tank, replace the rad. cap. Try that to see if you can get all the air out. If still overheating, do check the fans. Then could have the coolant system pressure tested for keeping pressure in the system and no leaks.

2006 Pt Cruiser fan keeps running and drains my battery


Chysler vehicles are notorious for having recalls. Call your local dealer with your 17 digit vin and see if there are any active recalls on for vehicle. One call possibly fix this problem. If not, you need to check your engine temp sensor, the electric fan relay, and fan module. One of these switches and sensors are telling the fan to come on because the engine is warm and needs to be cooled off. You will find most of these sensors and switches near or close to the front of the motor close to the fan and top radiator hose. You can also retrace the wiring harness from the fan motor back to most of the sensors that control it. Hope this helps.

2006 pt cruiser, cooling fan motor stays on after car is shut off, drains battery. car is not overheating though.


check the fluid in the radiator, and replace the thermostat the way it is positioned it could stop the flow from the radiator and keep the fan from turning off, I have found on several of them that I have worked on that the thermostat was bad. hope this helps. Only other things that would cause this or most common is the antifreeze is bad or the water pump is defective or you have a bad radiator hose but have not seen this on any I have worked on.
