2001 Dodge Stratus Q&A

2001 Dodge Stratus Question: My fans will not turn on.

My fans will not turn on causing my car to continue overheating. We changed the thermostat thinking that was it but it's still overheating. We checked the fuses for the fans and they are fine. Why will my fans not come on? -
Answer 1
My first question is does the A/C system work properly and if it does the cooling fans will come on when the a/c switch is put in the on position.The cooling system has sensors for the gauge which seems to be working but there is a coolant temp.sensor that tells the on-board computer the coolant temp.and this is part of thecooling fan control.Next question is the service engine soon light on or has it come on before. -

I don't even turn my A/C on and my car is over heating. Shouldn't my fans come on when my car starts to get warm? I have changed the thermostat, it's not leaking anti-freeze from the radiator, I have checked the fan relays and they are both good...I'm wondering if it could be something electrical? -

Instead of continuing to guess what to repair next, I'd suggest you have an excellent mechanic diagnose your fan malfunction and recommend exactly what parts need to be replaced. Our diagnostics fee will be credited toward your repair. You will also have warranty on parts and labor. -

I would love to take it to a mechanic but since I am a single mother on a limited income and very limited right now as I just had surgery and am on disability then I can't afford to take it to one. -
