The issue is, when the truck isn't running and the key is turned a quarter of the way to the start positioned I have the fans (a relay is connecting power?), then I turn it to start and a relay powers the starter, however I lose power to the fans. If I turn the key backwards to get the fans back on the truck dies

I have a 97 Ram 1500 4x2 and a 98 Ram 1500 4x4. The 98 is in great shape, but the transmission is shot. The 97 is in horrible shape, but the Transmission is in great shape. Any chance I can use the 97 4x2 trans in the 98 4x4 truck? ...Many Thanks
