Default 2005 Radiator Fan Motor

I have seen lots of posts in regards to the radiator cooling fan motor. Last summer one set of windings went out on my cooling fan motor and left me with one speed. The symptoms I had included no A/C at idle and occasionally the A/C system would build up pressure and vent to atmosphere. The a/c would work normally at highway speeds. I decided i didn't want to spend a fortune on this repair so I came across a replacement motor (new) for $56. The motor can be removed from the fan shroud and blade very easily. Here is site to purchase this motor for a 2005. They have motors for other model years. My motor has been a year now with no problems.

Yep, we usually tell owners about buying the motor separately and they can be bought at Auto Zone and other retail auto stores like the one you pointed out.

It's a shame you still have to take the fan itself out to replace just the motor. I'd be nice to be able to slip a new one right in while it's still on the car.

Thanks for posting another place to pick one up. Welcome to the forum.

That is the exact same motor I bought. In total time to disassemble, remove, replace and reinstall the fan, it only took me a total of 1 hour.

It was a REALLY simple job.....good luck!

BTW...Autozone advised me they no longer sell just the motor....or was it Kragen..?

I have often thought about replacing the factory fan system with two aftermarket cooling fans ...One large fan to replace the high speed function and another smaller one to replace the low speed fan. One could be mounted on the air conditioner condenser and the other one on the radiator...I've almost decided that a single fan would work just fine connected in place of the high speed fan....Just some ideas

If everything is working well, the single turbine fan that the PT has does a great job of keeping everything cool. You can sit in one spot with the engine running and the air on full blast and the temperature will never go past half way.
