Default intermitent overheating and trans failur

so I have an 01 pt cruiser automatic recently it had spark plugs and wire replaced new battery oil change , I have started having this problem where my car starts to overheat and the transmission goes into limp mode only reaches 2nd gear tops , its doesn't do it in town only up hill going at high speeds the shop told me it was a radiator fan fuse relay and that they tried fixing the problem well that didn't work its still blows the fuse I took it into Chrysler because I don't know much about this car they told me that the wire harness was rubbing on something and causing this problem they mentioned that a cable in the transmission cable harness also leads to the radiator fan relay and could be causing this problem I don't know what to do can anyone help me ?

You took it to Chrysler and they told you the harness is rubbing against something,....did they fix that? If not why? It could be the answer to both your questions on limp mode and overheating.
