Question about 1999 Dodge Caravan

2 Answers

1999 Dodge Caravan Overheating When issue started, thought it was a sticky thermastat. Changed that. Then overheated again and noticed the fans spin speed was slow then it kept poping fuses. Used a code reader and the code read "Radiator Fan Relay Control Circuit".Changed the relay and then fan worked for a minute and then poped a fuse and the A/C will not stay on. . Cuts on and off. Would my whole fan assemble need to be changed out. What would be a good test before spending $200 on another fan assembly. Any voltage checks? What readings at what pin?

Worn out or defective fan (spinning slow) and drawing too much amperage, thus blowing the fuse should be a pretty good indicator if all connections have been inspected and confirmed good and clean. I'd double check voltage to fan is up to spec, and use a clamp on amp-meter to verify amperage draw, and if too high, I'd change it. You should be able to get just motor to replace from parts store, provided all other components of the fan are still in good shape.

2002 dodge caravan sport overheated. It has a new radiator and hoses; we changed the thermostat and replaced the relay and pigtail for the cooling fans after it overheated but we still have the overheating...


Double check the thermostat and make sure the water pump is doing its job. To check the thermostat, simply take it out and reassemble the housing with out the unit. Run the engine and hopefully it will get warm to hot. If not check the pump.

2001 grand caravan overheating. then suddenly cool


Change your thermostat before it sticks closed completely. Sticky thermostat is usually the cause.
Another possibility is that your radiator fan temperature switch is going bad. This is usually located next to the upper radiator hose at the gooseneck on your engine where the thermostat is located.
