Hello,

The cooling fan relay is mounted to the side of the radiator support. The hi speed relay is on the left side of the radiator support the low speed relay in in the totally integrated power module on the left side of fender.

Here is a guide that will help you confirm the problem.

This is the Touring model. Key word here being the "Touring". The vehicle is overheating due to the coolant fan not turning on. I have positive and negative jumper wires running off of the battery to the cooling fan for a short term temporary fix. I am guessing that the fan relay is probably bad. I do not have a check engine light on, so for the moment I will believe there are no trouble codes coming back. I cannot locate the cooling fan relay. On the caravan, and (regular) town and country, I know it is located on the bottom rail just below the radiator, or on the drivers side inside edge of the frame. However, this does not seem to be the case on the Town and Country Touring though. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

The check engine light only turns on when the diagnostic fault code refers to something that could adversely affect emissions. There's over 1,000 fault codes that could be set with the check engine light not turned on.

The low-speed radiator fan relay is plugged into the Integrated power module. That is the fuse box under the hood. The high-speed relay is to the left of the radiator. Both of those are controlled by that module. That module is the best suspect if neither relay turns on. To verify that, use a scanner to command the check engine to turn the radiator fan on. If that does not work, switch to the "inputs/outputs" menu for the TIPM, then watch the "fan request" input to the TIPM while you unplug the coolant temperature sensor. If the scanner shows "fan request on", or "high", suspect the TIPM for not responding to the request.

Are you referring to part number 56007078 as the High Speed relay by any chance? I pulled no codes either by the way. However my attempt to pull codes was while the coolant fan was unplugged, as I had been driving it with the fan running directly off of the battery. The fan was disconnected from the battery and unplugged from the wiring harness at the moment of attempting to retrieve any codes.

That part number is indeed a standard relay and is the type shown on the wiring diagram as the high-speed fan relay. Rock Auto shows a four-terminal electronic module for the relay, which is totally different. Those were mounted halfway down the side of the radiator and used two data buss wires, plus a ground and a 12-volt feed wire to provide infinitely-variable speeds. Your two relays is a more reliable circuit.

Where is the cooling fan relay located on a 2006 chrysler town & country? The light came on, so we hooked up a scanner to the vehicle. And it told us there is a problem with the Cooling Fan Circuit 1 Relay (Code: P0480). I am not sure where to locate the cooling fan relay. Is there a diagram you could send me. Or any suggestions on going about fixing this problem (P0480)? Thank you.

Hello,

The cooling fan relay is located just in front of the radiator. Here is a diagram of its location (below)
