Have finally located the Fan Relay for the engine radiator fans. Replaced it and fans are operating once again. The relay was rivet mounted in the air intake passage just below the drivers side headlight assembly. I removed the air-filter and intake ducts and then removed headlight assembly from the frame(1 bolt on top & 3 nuts in back). Next I disconnected the two lamp connectors to complete the removal process. Lastly there was one more screw holding the upper half of the forward section of air intake. Under this was the Fan Relay. Disconnected the relay, drilled out the rivets, pulled out the old relay and put in the new. Used sheet metal screws to secure it in place. Tested it and reinstalled everything. Working fine so far.

I'm having fan problems, I stop the engine but the fan wont stop runing, it had runed my battery down the first time cause I did not noticed, now I have to pull the fan fuse every time I stop and put it back on when I'm ready to go, a certified mecanic from cadillac told me it most likely be the fan relay that needs to be replace, the mechanics at Chrystler didn't find nothing wrong ( imagine that ), of course, didnt hapen when they checked it, now it won't stop doing it; did anybody ha this problem before. The funny thing is that it happened when they had the car for oil change, then all started. THIS CAR IS PROBLEM AFTER PROBLEM; BACK BREACKS, FRONT BREACKS, ROTORS, THEY HAVE TO BE REPLACE ALMOST EVERY 10k to 15k MILES, I ASSUMED THAT THE " MOPART '' PARTS THAT THEY USED ARE NOTHING BUT CRAP, DON'T KNOW WAY THEY BRAG ABOUT IT, THEY NEED A BETTER AFTER MART MANUFACTURE FOR THEIR PARTS. DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY COMMENTS ON THIS MATTER?
Ps:I' ll think about it before buying a Chrystler next time.

not sure if 2000 and 2001 are same but think there's a good chance they have the same fan relay setup.
If the fans never come on when the engine is beginning to get hot, like when the engine sits idling for 10 mins or more, then there's a good chance the fan relay may be the problem. The relay was less than $15 a year ago and it took about 30min to replace and I was figuring it out as I went. Locating the relay (on the car) was my biggest problem.

I have the same problem that you have. I found the the pigtail (468 7259 wiring jumper) is shorting. I wiggled it while the motor was hot and it began to run. I am having a problem finding the replacement part because it has been discontinued. I am canvasing junkyards now for a replacement. I rigged a wire hanger to create pressure on the plug and it operating now. Need to find a wiring jumper fast.

Van overheated last night. Coolant was leaking from one of the 4 metal pipes run the length of the van, they maybe a foot and a half, are rusted out and appear to be leaking coolant. Filled overflow tank with coolant and is full, but still overheating. Any thought? What would they be under on like autozonecom?

I also have a 2000 Chrysler Town and Country and it is overheating. i deliver the newspaper and it does fine when i drive long distances, but, when I start doing my route with the slowing down and starting up again, is when it starts to overheat. Steam comes out from under the hood on passenger side. Turned off engine and let it cool and i was able to drive it home. Mechanic came over and we replaced the water pump and he also switched out some of the fuses in the fuse box under the hood. Turned ac on and the fans wouldn't come on, he wanted to go get freon to charge ac so it would be stronger to turn on fans, but, we decided against it. So, next morning I started my route and it did the samething, When I got to a stop, I turned off engine to go deliver a paper at an apt. and I noticed water dripping on passenger side. Got back in and started route again and steam started coming out from under hood on passenger side, thought I would stop and let it cool down again, but, before I could do that, a lot of steam started coming out from under the hood on driver side and i got out to check, and water all over ground, too hot to check under hood, of course, sat there and waitted, was able to open up hood and only thing i saw was some water in the tray that holds the battery. So, I had it towed home and mechanic came over next day and found a crack in the radiator and also noticed that the fan on drivers side, he could turn the blade, but, the fan on passenger side wouldn't turn at all. So, now he thinks that we definitely need a new radiator and also the fans-maybe just the one. As far as the fans, could it still just be the Fan Relay, or has it gone past that? Please help. I am a single mother and need an honest opinion. Don't want to get taken advantage of because I am a women.
