Default Re: cooling fan

Hard to say, but most have gone after market to save a bunch of money. Chrysler wants a couple hundred dollars ad you can pick one up on eBay for under a hundred. Which will last longer, again, hard to say. My first OEM fan went in 3 years. the one I have now, because there weren't many after market fans, came from a dealer in Texas because there was a country wide shortage and he happened to have one in stock. That's been running for 8 years.

We try to tell everyone to buy only Chrysler electrical parts as the after market foreign electrical parts are crap. It's up to you. It's a shame that it's probably only abut $5 worth of brushes that burn out that stops the fan. It still has to be taken out of the car and taken apart to fix it which most people won't do so "almost" everyone buys a new fan and housing.

If you want to try fixing it yourself, here's onle of a few different threads on how to do it.
