Hello,

The cooling fan relays are located under the hood in the PDC. Here is a guide to help you test the relays and the location in the diagrams below.

Check out the diagrams (Below). Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

My car started to overheat and they state that it is because something is shorting in the fan and it is causing a fuse to blow that runs the fan. Is it necessary to replace the entire fan AND motor or just the motor?

Hello,

Unfortunately on newer vehicles you have to replace the entire assembly.

They are separate areas. Check fuses and relay for cooling fan. If those are ok it might be your coolant temp switch. Have it scanned for codes if fuses and relay for a/c are ok.

When engine comes to temperature, the radiator fans do not come on. Fans never come on when engine is shut off, either. Engine overheats.

Hello -

To better assist you is your model a ES, RT, SE or SXT? Also can you give me your engine size in liter?

Please go to Auto Zone (AZ) or O'Reilly's (OR) and for FREE they can pull the codes to the car. Most important: Once they check your codes, if they find something and you don't get it fixed and need to get back with us, please make sure you tell us exactly what the code was, number and all. Example, if the code was E0568 O2 Sensor bad. Then make sure you give us all of that. While there for FREE also they can bring their tester out and check your battery and alternator.

Next, start the car when the engine is cool and hood open and AC is off. The fans should not turn. Next, with the car running, turn the AC on high, do the fans come on then?

When my electric radiator fan comes on, it's making a loud noise. Especially when the AC kicks on. I wanted to know if it's the fan motor that's going bad or something else?

Our 2004 dodge stratus overheated and we learned that BOTH fans (radiator and AC)are not turning on. Also when our car overheat the A/C doesn't work either. We replaced the thermostat, the temp sensor and the PCM. What do I do now? How can I check things? HELP!

The fastest test is to bypass the radiator fan relay to see if the fans run. You can pop the cover off the relay and squeeze the contacts or you can use a piece of wire or stretched out paper clip to connect terminals 30 and 87 in the relay socket.

Radiator fan stays on when car is off I have to undo battery cable every time I get out of car. When driving the fan sounds like it will fly off its goes so fast.

Also I hear a kinda squeezing noise and matal on left back

And when going over 35 the car jerkes back and forth and also when going over bumps u can tell there something thumping.

I think it's the ball joint

As far as the noise, check all steering components and rubber bushings. Commonly, these vehicles have issues with strut plates and stablizer bushings.

As far as the radiator, remove the fan relay from under the hood in the power distribution box. Switch it with a different relay that has the same part number. Let me know if that fixes the problem.
