if you can send me the vin i can pull the proper wiring diagram for you the PT is wired a little different than a PT turbo in the cooling fan area.

was there any "creative" wiring done when the aftermarket fan was installed?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I dont have the vin no. It is my daughters car. It is definately the turbo. They wired the other fan direct. David U cant help me without a vin no?
Expert:  bill replied 4 months ago.

i can look it up by year, model and enginel BUT the vin guarantees the correct diagram, give me a minute to look up the vehicle by year and model

Expert:  bill replied 4 months ago.

look at this picture and let me know if it matches your UNDERHOOD fuse box please, the 2 highlighted spaced should contain relays, if not then there should be 2 relays mounted on the fan shroud itself let me know which one you have please, i need to know which to determine which fuse feeds the fan assembly

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
The distribution box looks nothing like mine, its on the drivers side of car facing engine. I have researched and been told by many people that the 2003 turbo has no relays, that it sends signal straight from pcm. it was a one only boch fan??? Please help I am worn out trying to figure this out. David
Expert:  bill replied 4 months ago.

that's why i needed the vin, can you send a picture of the fuse box?

use the paperclip icon to upload a picture

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Surely u can find the right fuse box for a 2003 pt cruiser turbo without the vin no.I cant get a picture of it until I can get to my daughters it is not local. It does not have relays. I am done with trying to get help.from here. David

i am sorry to hear that BUT since i am a chrysler tech and have access to all the chrysler diagrams the vin is teh best way to get the info you need i looked it up by year model and engine and teh 03 PT is it's own creature so i suggest a pro since this is far from something that can be diagnosed without the car in front of me OR pictures to see the fan you used or the wiring

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
can I get a refund of my money, i am very disappointed. No help at all. David
