My 2006 Chrysler Pacifica both radiator fans stay running until the battery dies.The check engine light came on too. What is the problem? Is it a computer problem or a resister thing? This vehicle has 75,000 miles and is all whell drive. No other problems so far. Nice car other than this problem.

    Most likely a relay has stuck closed. Check owners manual for location.

    Thanks! That's pretty much what I had decided it was. It's located behind the glove box. Part cost $50.00 at O'Rillys auto parts. Dealer costs a lot more. Going to try it today after the weather cools down. I almost forgot to mention, it would not jump start because the 2 fans were using the power. Unplugged the fan fuse located in the fuse box under the hood #13 I think, and it jumped fine. Then plugrd the fuse back in and of course both fans kept running. Drove it to the parts store opened hood and unpluged the fuse while I bought the part. Then plugged fuse back in and drove it home. (40 amp fuse) Also take off the negitive battery cable before installing relay. It's going to be over a hundred today in Omaha Nebraska! To hot!
    Thanks, Ben
