Radiator Fan Relay location 1999 Town and Country

I have replace both radiator and radiator fans w/ shroud. Now the fan stopped working altogether. Purchased a radiator fan relay but cannot find its location. I have torn the entire drivers side engine apart removing both battery and its cradle and air filter and its cradle, and finally the PCM. NOTHING! About to lose my mind.

    Mr. Wilson,

    If you are correct. I will send you a check for the $25.00 I spent on a 'USELESS' Haynes manual. I am watching my kids right now and do not have the luxury of getting right back to it, but will let you know of my success.

This was a real head scratcher for me too. There were mounting holes where it ought to be from all the other postings, but they had clearly never been used. Finally found it in the air intake behind the driver's side headlamp. Take off the headlamp (one bolt and three nuts) and the plastic baffle underneath it (one phillips screw) and there it is. I guess they stuck it there to keep it cooler. Needless to say I had a lot more bits to put back on that I didn't need to take off, but you'll have them off anyway looking for it in the common location!

How to change the fan.i own a 2006 town an country chrysler van and the air conditioner works when the car is going but once I stop the tempature guage goes up to hot and the van will over heat causin

It should be a fairly simple R&R since the fan and shroud is bolted to the radiator support. Usually you take it out as an assembly.
If you haven't done so already, be sure and check the fuse and relay before condemning the cooling fan motor.

How to test and replace radiator cooling fan.


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:


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 have a 1999 chry town and country van. Replaced radiator fan, thermostat and fan relay fuse and continues to get hot at times. What could be the problem?

IF your sitting in stop and go traffic with the AC on it will over heat and if the water Pump is weak or about to go out it will overheat. Try having the system power flushed and see if that helps and make sure you are using a 50/50 mix of Antifreeze instead of straight water in the radiator. Also try replacing the radiator cap a weak spring in the cap will allow the water into the overflow bottle too soon causing over flow.

I have a Chrysler town & country model 2002 where the radiator fans are no longer running. What should I believe is the problem? Fuses seems ok. Could it be the relay or some other switch? I have been...

A lot of this could have contributed to the radiator not working.. and you have already mentioned some of them. it could be the fuse or the relay or the wiring of the fan or the fan itself..

the fuse issue is easy to fix. identify the fuse box, open the lid and look on the inside for the specific fuse for the fan on the schematic there.

replace the fuse with a spare..

If the fan still does not work, approach your mechanic to check any of the other causes of the fan not working..

Need to inform you of the implications of using you car with the radiator fan not working...
Over heating has grave consequences pay attention to the gauge.....
fix problem as soon as possible.

The fan to radiator stop working what could be the problem!

The electric fans are controlled by a thermostat usually located on or near the radiator. If it has failed, the fan will not start. Also, the fan is fed power through a fan control relay usually located in the fuse box. If this relay is bad the fan will not receive power. One more thing to check is the fuse or circuit breaker. Again these are located in the fuse box. If all these check out, you may have a bad fan motor although it's unlikely.

I hope this helps :)

Why does my 2005 Town & Country radiator fan

The fan is computer controlled and will not come on untill it reaches 212Deg . It should come on though if you turn on the air conditioning, if not you could have a bad fan relay or relay plug.

How do i replace the radiator fan relay in an 05 town and country

this van has a solid state relay unit to control the fan, when it dies it just allows the fans to run. this relay is located behind drivers headlight, attached to the bumper towards the grill. It will either be bolted on or riveted on. There will be big fins on it to keep it cool. When you change this unit you have to mount it for it to work right (zip ties are no good) seen that before.
