Question about 1995 Dodge Intrepid
I have a 1995 Dodge Intrepid and when it's warm outside or the car has been running for a while the instrument cluster and eletric fan stop working and when the eletric fan stops working the car over heats. No one I have spoke to has any idea. Could you please help me out.
Sounds like a short in the wires underhood near the power distabution center look for white chalk like buildup on wire wraps if no short its a bad control modual

I will take a stab at this.
Have you checked to make sure that the fan switch is not bad?
Are you stating that the fan works normally, but when your engine gets hot the fan stops?
I would do what I have always done in this situation. Find a hot wire under the hood that is hot when the key is switched on. Run the fan to that wire. Then when the car is on, the fan will work. An electric fan is a pain in the but. They do this a lot. You can buy a new fan motor switch or take my way that I always solve this problem.
I can't remember if that is front wheel drive or not. If there is any way to take the fan off and replace it with a flex fan, you can do that. This will never stop working unless your engine stops working. This works great if you have a rear wheel drive car. I do not know what that car is.
Have you checked your thermostat? This could be a sensor going bad. Either way, I would change the thermostat, because if you have never changed it, you will be better of knowing that the thermostat is new.
I do not know if you liked my answer or not. but I explained what I do for this problem. My father was a mechanic for 40 years before his death and I worked in the garage from 8 years up til his death. I do all of my mechanic work if at all possible within my limits. I know for a fact that this way will not let you down unless the fan decides not to work one day. I have not seen that happen yet.
I hope that this fixes your problem. Rate this as a fix if you are happy with the answer. If you have more concern or questions, feel free to ask me more. I am here to help any way that I can.
