1997 Dodge Avenger Missing Radiator relays


It is common for some relay positions to not be used on many cars. These are places for relays that control things that your vehicle is not equipped with. For example, if your vehicle is not equipped with fog lamps, the spot where the fog lamp relay would go will be empty and there will be no connectors in that spot either.

As for your overheating problem, it needs to be properly diagnosed. Most Dodge engines are VERY unforgiving when it comes to being overheated. Even if it was not caused by a blown head gasket, there is a really good chance that it has one now.

Combustion gasses in your cooling system can keep your fans from running, because the gasses push the water down and away from the Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor that tells the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) when to operate the fans.

Your Avenger is actually equipped with four different fan control relays. It is very unlikely that all of the relays would be bad (or missing).

Proper diagnosis required.

My 1997 dodge neon sohc is overheating while ideling but goes back to normal when running the fans are running even when ideling and there is anti freeze


So the car only overheats at idle? How many miles on the car? What fan are you referring to - the heater fan or the cooling fan for the radiator? It sounds like you may have a plugged up radiator. If the engine has high mileage the radiator may have accumulated enough junk over the years to become restricted. Some automotive technicians have a laser that they can use to check the radiator for cool spots, which would indicate internal blockage.

RADIATOR FANS NOT RUNNING


Either the fan is out or the (Relay/Fuse)

You might also have a problem with the connecting cable to supply the fan with power, check with a proper voltmeter.

Hope that helps.

1997 dodge neon is running hot


What is the mileage? Check the reservoir for coolant, when the engine is COLD,... I repeat COLD, check the radiator for fluid. If fluid is present, check to see if your fans are working properly, turn your AC on and your fans in front of your motor should kick in within minutes.

If you have coolant in the reservoir and radiator (suspect a new thermostat, replacing the radiator will benefit greatly too)

If your fans do not turn on within minutes, replace your radiator fan relay.

My 1997 dodge neon sohc auto check engine light is on with engine code p1491(open or shorted condition dectected in the radiator fan relay circuit) fan runs all the time with key on or off. replaced fan...


First, the easy way is to just bypass the relays all together. Install a switch on the inside of the car like you would fog lights. This will solve the problem of replacing thing after thing and wasting money. Just a $7.00 fix. After doing that unplug all the sensors and then the battery for at least 60 second to reset the computer. Than restart the car and the check engine light should go out, may take a day or so. Same thing with your gas cap, re-securing it will take a day or so for the light to go out. Good luck. I love my '97 neon.
