Question Fan problems

The radiator fan stopped working. I took it to the repair shop 3 times. It has blown 3 fan motors within a month. They're buying the motors at Oreillys. Any help on why it keeps burning out the motors?

Default Re: Fan problems


Somebody else was just on here with the same problem; fan motors keep burning out. I can't find the thread right now. We never did find a problem but just thought it might be a surge from something that would burn them out or wiring problem somewhere.

I would definitely try a different brand of motor.

We do have problems all the time with owners replacing the Camshaft Sensor with a parts store brand and having problems yet when they finally break down and buy one from Chrysler, it cures the problems.

The mechanic said they found a ground wire that was burnt and replaced yet another fan at no cost to me. Drove it to work and it's still working. I hope this fixed the problem. If not, I'll take it back and let them try that.
