    If the fan works, then it is the temperature sensor (either located on the engine, or on the radiator itself), or the fan relay.

    Most likely it's the relay, as that handles all of the electrical load.

    Does it come on if you turn on the a/c?

Try your coolant temp sensor first its cheaper it is near the thermostat housing it has two wires,disconect it if your fan turns on then its just that part if not then it's your relay switch which is near your battery w/4 wires pink,green,grey and one other color

2005 dodge caravan cooling fan works fine with A/C but wont work automatically to cool the engine

? the cooling fan inside the vehicle isnt the same fan that cools the radiator. The AC runs off a compressor pump and the blower motor(fan) distributes it through the vehicle, the blower motor also distributes the heat from the heater core when its set on that. If your motor is overheating and the cooling fan isnt starting the fan itself may be defective or the thermostat that controls it.

2000 dodge carravan cooling fans will not come on unless you hot wire them.Has had a new relay installed,all fuses are good.

Hi Columbia,
If the fan operates with a hot wire and you've replaced the relay, try the sensor.
  • On your vehicle there will be three sensors for the cooling system. All will be fitted either into the cylinder head or close to the thermostat housing.
  1. Takes signal to the gage on the dash instrument cluster and is a single cable.
  2. Will be the cable that control's fan operation (This is the one you want)
  3. Is a double cable and takes signal to the management system
To test which of the single cables is which, when grounded the heat gage will go full hot on the instrument panel.The other should engage the fan....Unless the relay is a normally open, in which case the fan will run as soon as you disconnect.
Once this test has been confirmed, loosen the sensor and replace it.
Remember to top up with the required coolant before start up.
Leave the engine idling to gain fan operating temperature and check that it engages.

Cooling fans are not comming on, heats up so smog test can't be performed

check the cooling fan relays. in the relay box it will be marked cooling fan realy
use a test light to see if you have a 12volt hot going in and after the temp startsto move up, you should then have another 12volt hot going outof the relay. if you do the fam motors are bad. 1 will come on automaticly when you turn on the A/C or heater in the defrost mode. check that first.

92 Dodge stealth radiator coolong fan does not turn on. Where is the heat sensor and how do you check to see if it is working?

Look for the obvious first. Blown Fuse, Burned Fan Relay.
To test, disconnect the Fan plug in, run 1 x Pos. and 1 x Neg. of 12 or 14 gauge wire from the Battery, directly to the Fan Motor, and it should energise.
The Sensor for the Fan is on the Engine. This is a 2 contact threaded switch,which is Normally open, and make circuit contact copletion when the cooling system heats up, energising the Fan Motor.
This Fan should also operate when the A/c is in operation also, independent of the Coolant side.
[eg] When setting off, from home on a Hot day, the A/c is on , long before the Engine heats up

1992caravan turn signals, low beams, and heater motor do notwork

A) Faulty turn signal switch or circuit.
B) Broken dimmer switch or poor electrical connection.Could be relay also.
C) Unplug the electrical connector at the motor and use fused jumper wires to connect the fan motor directly to the battery. If the fan still doesn't work replace the motor. If fan works could be your relay.
