RADIATOR FAN RELAY CONNECTION HARNESS.

2000 Dodge Caravan

Engine Cooling problem
2000 Dodge Caravan 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 175185 miles

Gentlemen,

Thanks in advance for your assistance! I'm replacing a radiator fan relay on a 2000 4cyl Dodge Caravan and can't get the relay unplugged from the harness. I'm afraid of damaging the connector which of course I'll need to connect the new relay.

Can you point me to an illustration or advise me on how to unplug the relay from the wiring harness? Also, once installed, if it functions properly, do I need to use the pigtail that comes with the new relay? I'd like to avoid the pigtail splicing if possible.

Thanks sincerely!

Chances are it is hard to disconnect because it heated up and melted. It should pull out of the socket. As far as the pigtail, if they gave you one, there is a reason or update. If I'm correct and the original one melted down, you will want to replace it.

Let me know if you have other questions.

They gave you that new pigtail for a reason. They have a problem with the plugs melting on to the relay. Cut the wires and splice in the new pigtail.
