Somwhere on that fused positive wire there is a pinch or scraped off insulation to that wire causing it to short out.Trace wire back to power source and see if any damage to wire.If wire isnt completly severd than tape with black elecrical tape and this should correct problem.If wire is completely damaged you must replace.

Need diagram for serpentine belt


14ae203.jpg

Fig. 1: Exploded view of the belt drive fan assembly-1992 vehicle shown

To install:
1. Position the fan on the drive clutch. Install the bolt and washer assemblies, then tighten to 12-17 ft. lbs. (16-24 Nm).

2. Position the fan drive clutch, fan assembly and fan shroud, then bolt the fan and clutch assembly to the water pump hub. Install and tighten the clutch retaining bolt and water pump assemblies evenly and alternately to 15-22 ft. lbs. (20-30 Nm) for the 3.8L engine or to 36-47 ft. lbs. (48-65 Nm) for the 5.0L engine.

3. Install the fan belt. Align the fan shroud and adjust for equal fan-to-shroud radiator clearance but maintaining a minimum of 0.38 inch clearance to the fan tip on 5.0L engines.

4. Install and tighten the shroud retaining screws. On 5.0L engines, snap the air deflector assembly to the sub-frame cross brace.

Tip

How to test and replace radiator cooling fan.


Hi.

Here a tip illustrating steps to test and replace the radiator cooling fan and the parts that may cause cooling fan malfunctioning.

Before replacing the fan, make sure that the fan is really faulty.
Read volts at fan contacts or jump the fan wiring to energize the fan directly.Ensure that fan blades are not blocked.

If the fan is OK, then the faulty part is either thermostat or fan relay.Ensure also that you have tested the 15A fuse in the junction block and the 40A fuse located in the Power distribution Center (PDC).

Here a diagram showing the location of the fan relay:

34b88b5.gif

Finally, here below the steps required to replace the fan. The procedure is quite simple.

  • Disconnect the battery negative cable and set it apart.
  • Disconnect the electrical connector to the radiator fan.
  • Undo the bolts that hold the top fan housing and fan assembly (this is called Radiator Shroud).
  • Remove the Radiator Shroud housing.The radiator shroud will come out with the fan sliding toward the top side.
  • Install the new fan performing the operations in reverse order.

Here a diagram showing radiator shroud and cooling fan assembly:

I own a 2003 Dodge Durango. The coolant fan stopped working. I found a plug loose near the fan. Is it possible it came unplugged? If yes, then is the plug inside the fan case? I have looked all over and...


I couldn't find the plug or wire on the diagram on my online resource, either. The fan must have a cable going to it to operate, somehow, though, I agree.

How to remove fan on a 5.2L engine


Hi, 5.2L Engines

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. The viscous fan drive and blade assembly is threaded into the water pump hub shaft. Remove the fan drive and blade assembly from the water pump by turning the mounting nut counterclockwise as viewed from the front while securing the water pump pulley. Do not remove or unbolt the fan drive and blade at this time.

Fig. : Fan blade and viscous drive (click for zoom)


The threads on the viscous fan drive are right hand threaded.
  1. Remove the 2 fan shroud-to-upper crossmember nuts.
  2. Remove the fan drive, blade and shroud as an assembly.
WARNING Do not place the viscous fan drive in a horizontal position. If stored horizontally, silicone fluid in the viscous fan drive could drain into its bearing assembly and the assembly would have to be replaced.
CAUTION Do not remove the water pump pulley-to-water pump bolts. The pulley is under spring tension.
  1. Remove the 4 bolts securing the fan blade assembly to the viscous fan drive.
To install:
  1. Install the fan blade on the viscous drive. Install the bolts and tighten them to 17 ft. lbs. (23 Nm).
  2. Position the fan shroud, viscous fan and blade into the engine compartment as an assembly.
  3. Position the fan shroud to the radiator. Insert the lower slots of the shroud into the crossmember. Install the upper attaching nuts.
Ensure the upper and lower portions of the fan shroud are firmly connected. All air must flow through the radiator.
  1. Install the fan drive and blade assembly to the water pump shaft and tighten the nut.
Ensure there is at least 1 inch (25mm) between the tips of the fan blades and shroud.
  1. Connect the negative battery cable.
