1993 Plymouth Voyager A/C FAN CLUTCH & RADIATOR FAN WIL

Hello, I have a 93 plymouth grand voyager with a 3.3 auto front wheel drive. Last summer I replaced the radiator and the wiring harness to the fan has a 2 speed and a 1 speed plug on it. I plugged the 1 speed plug in and didn't notice the 2 speed plug until it got against the exhaust manifold. I think it shorted something out because my radiator fan and my a/c will not work. I replaced all of the relays and that did no good and checked all the fuses I could find. It's getting hot again and I would like to get this fixed. Is there a fusible link somewhere? Or what do you think the problem is?

Thank you,

Joe V
Do you

Can't remember which year they switched from fusible links to large maxi-fuses, but it was somewhere in the early 1990s. Look at the wire harness that goes around the left front strut tower. If you see a bunch of orange, white, and gray wires, those are fuse links. Pull on them one at a time. If it acts like a wire, it's ok. If it acts like a rubber band, it's junk. In some years, the backup lights run off the same fuse link as the radiator fan, so check to see if they're working.

Fuse links are regular wire but are a smaller gauge than the rest of the circuit, so they're the weak link in the chain. The insulation IS special because it will not burn or melt. You can buy fuse links at parts stores and the dealership. The color indicates the current rating. You will get twice as much wire as you need, so it's good for two repairs. You could install a fuse holder and use a regular blade-type fuse, but be sure to use a weather-proof fuse holder.
