Default My 05 pt cruiser fan does not turn on with A/C.

Hello !
So my fan does not turn on when I engage my A/C, I have done the troubleshooting techniques as i found on this site. I hot wired the fan motor and it turned on therefore the motor is good. I have replaced the High speed relay and the low speed relay and the A/C relay in the engine fuse box. The glass top fuse (40A) is also in good condition. The system has been recently charged so it ca not be due to low freon. Im now pretty stumped!

When I applied direct power on the fan connector the left pin would not activate it only the right one. I am quite unsure if it is the high speed but it did sound pretty loud. What does this mean?..thanks crewzin your the best!

JonS, both speeds of the fan should be able to activate while putting 12V to either pin. If it sounded pretty loud, then the low speed ins't working.

So at this point should I just replace the fan motor? I know that autozone sells it for about $100... how complicated is it? Is there any links that show a step by step process? Thank you very much for the help!

There just happens to be a HOW TO on that fan housing...

Removing the fan and housing 01-05 PT

OR, if you have the time, you can try and fix the fan motor yourself...

Jons, just get the whole fan. It costs about the same as the motor (really!), and will save you time. RockAuto has a Dorman one for cheap and it's guarranteed for life.
