SOURCE: 1999 dodge caravan. engine cooling fan is not turning off

The relay has failed in teh "on" position. This is a weak lilnk in the Chrysler colling system. I replaced mine for the same problem. It ran my battery down.
It is located under the battery on the frame rail. You have to remover the batter, then the battery tryan and look straight down - you will see it on the frame rail. Over heating was the suspected cause, so make sure you use a hdeat transfer gel under the new relay with you attach it to the frame rail.

Test at the spark plug if you are getting current there with a cheap spark plug tester, if not, it could be the spark box. ( it used to be an ignition coil on older cars ) double check the computer for codes which may lead to a cam sensor not giving the PCM information.

SOURCE: 2006 dodge grand caravan-car won;t start.

My 2003 dodge caravan would not start after driving about 1/2 hour. I stopped for coffee and when got back in to start it started I switched gears and it stalled. I tried to start again switched gears then it started but only for 2 sec. No clicking, no cranking sound just would not start but battery functions were great. Spent 2 days with a mechanic who could not resolve so sent to Dodge. After a day of putting wires back and checking out the problem they said it was the computer. Said that it was bad and could be replaced at no charge due to malfunction. Yes, it worked fine afterwards no more problems. They also said that some of the computers are found to be defective like this one so I hope this helps you in the right choice to have the dealer check it out if you are unable to get a computer reading and there is no obvious short in the system. Free sounded very good but as you know there is no such thing as really free as they got me for other things $350 worth. ouch!

When I turn the engine off the engine cooling fan stays on and does not shut off


depending on the engine temperature the fan is supposed to remain on after you turn the engine off, until the engine reaches a preset cooler temperature. when it reaches cooler temperature usually within 5 minutes or so it should cut off... if you cut it off and it is running 30 minutes later.. then there is a problem with the fan relay or temperature sending unit.

Car fan won't turn off


Is it over heated? It is normal for an overheated vehicle to keep the fans on to cool down for a little while. If they dont shut down after a few mins, then check the wiring for any shortage.
I hope this helps!

My lights on my 1996 caravan won't shut off until the timer shuts them off and they turn on when any door is opened


You are talking about interior lights, right ?
As long as the on-time is under a minute or two, its normal.
The lights are supposed to go off as soon as you start the van tho.

No heat till you start driving and then fan will kick on and not shut off but it doesnt overheat


You won't get heat right away. The heat has to have time to reach the heater core. That's where you get the heat for the passenger compartment. But if the fan isn't turning off, then I would have it checked for an electrical problem.

Dodge caravan heat fan won't work


If it is the fan/blower that is not working (as opposed to what is coming out is cold), then the problem could be 1) fuse 2) Blower Resistor. I just replaced the blower resistor in about 15 min with a $25 replacement resistor. The unit is right behind the glove box.

If the problem is that the air coming out is cold and not hot, then the thermostat, radiator, heater core, etc... are the more likley causes.
