It all depends on if they are connected as one peice or not, if they are seperate from each other you can just replace the bad one. Ensure that it is bad first also.

Why is my radiator fan not working

Use jumper wires from the battery to the fan connector to see if the fan motor is good. If fan is still good, start looking at a wiring diagram to find the problem-possibly a bad relay. If fan motor is not working, buy a new fan assembly from salvage or new.

Radiator fan/coast to fix

An hour or two labor cost plus the cost of a new fan motor, and the shop's mark-up for the fan motor. If diagnosing of the fan circuit is called for, expect to pay more.
Save the labor costs and price of new motor by doing it yourself with a whole fan assembly from a salvage yard. Very easy to remove and replace. However, if it is not the motor at fault but a circuit fault, you will have to diagnose or pay for diagnostics, but with a known good fan motor, would be considerably less. The computer energizes the radiator fan relay to shoot power to the fan motor when needed.

Radiator fan not working on my 1997 T&C van. I've replaced the radiator fan relay and even the wire harness. Still not fan. It has now lost power and A/C is not working well I assume due to...

IASounds like the radiator fan motor is bad (not uncommon for a chrysler product)
You can replace the fan motor (DIY) for around $100 (oreily autoparts) or the the entire fan assembly for around $300 (DYI) .
Replacing the fan motor will take about 2-3 hours.....taking out the fan assembly will consume most of your time.
hoppe this helps.

Radiator fan motor on 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I hope that you haven't went out and bought a whole new assembly due to the other poster's response. Yes you can just replace the motor otherwise why would you be able to buy the motors separately. There's usually 3 bolts that hold the fan shroud in that you have to remove along with the electrical plug. It takes some manipulation to get the entire fan/shroud assembly out (it helps to have someone underneath the vehicle guiding it) but once out you will see a clip over the top of the fan. It's kind of a challenge to get off but using a hammer and a flat head screwdriver you can work it off. Be aware that you have to put the clip back on so don't pry it off and ruin it....just kind of chisel it off. Once off, the fan blade comes off with a little effort. There's your exposed motor. Take off the 3 bolts and pull out the wires and replace it with your new motor. I hope this helps others....I couldn't find this information anywhere and figured it out along the way.

    I just bought a new radiator fan relay.(not the one in the fuse box, the one with a heat sink) I've been told it's behind the bumber and also told right side of engine. any help on location?

    This is a fan module(relay)It should be ,if you are standing in front of van,and facing motor,down to your right.Look under the van,up at the radiator,and you should see it.I think if you follow the wires from the fans,it will go right to it.If the module went out,chances are one of the fans are replace the fans order the fan assembly.If you try to replace one fan in the fan assembly,the blade will break.Then you will be stuck with a motor you bought,and need the whole assembly.If I can help,let me know.
