Question about 1998 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

I have a 1998 Dodge Caravan and today when I got home, I noticed that the cooling fan would not turn off. I drove it 10 miles and the engine was not hot upon returning. Any ideas what the problem might be? How do I get it to turn off (afraid the battery will drain overnight)?

The only way to protect the battery, is by disconnecting the positive harness from the (+) terminal of the battery. If you want to stop the cooling fan, then unplug the wires from the connector, but the car will owerheat in idling. Might be a bad temperature sensor or something else. If the service engine soon is on, then decode it, find the code explanation and find a way to fix the problem. This car has to be inspected in a mechanical shop, befor the battery is lost.
