This is a code for the condenser fan relay. Typically you just need to replace the relay and it will fix the problem. The relay is in the fuse box under the hood.

hello, id like to try and assist on you on this problem your having. the relay will not fix your concern here, what you need to check is fuse 39 in the under the hood fuse block it will be blown if it is you'll need to replace the a/c condenser fan and shroud per tsb 08-002-03. dodge was having problems with the design of the shroud allowing water to get down by the fan and then in cold weather it freezes and keeps the fan from turning and then the fan motor begins to draw to much current and blows fuse 39.

 

 

 

once the fan motor and shroud are replaced you'll need to take it to the dealer to have the pcm flash updated which should only be about an half hours charge to do.

the fuse IS blown. Your diagnosis is correct. As a tsb, am I responsible in paying for this procedure?
Expert:  quickcar replied 7 years ago.

you will be responsible for paying for it if you don't have an extended warranty that will cover it. TSB's are not like recalls, tsb's are basically to aid tech's on diagnosing common problems.
