2008 Dodge Caliber 2.0 radiator fan 1 isn't coming on. The other one runs fine. With the scanner I tried turning it on but nothing happens. Fuse is fine. Couldn't find a relay. Common cause?

Hello, and welcome to just answer. Try jumping power and ground directly at the connector for the fan motor. If it does not come on, then the motor itself is bad and will need to be replaced.

Let me know if the fan comes on when you jump it.

It comes on. I tested for power and I'm not getting power to it. I didn't see any broken wires
Expert:  Chris replied 4 months ago.

Ok, when I get home from work in about two hours, I will pull up the wiring diagram and see where the problem may be and then get back to you.

Ok, I have been looking at the diagrams and see that there is a High/Low fan relay in the fuse/relay (TIPM) box. There are also a couple of fuses ( a 10 amp and a 50 amp), Try swapping that relay with another one, and check your fuses closely.

Let me know what you find.

Expert:  Chris replied 4 months ago.

I will look for the diagnostic procedure for that code.

Chris

Expert:  Chris replied 4 months ago.

This is the only diagnostic procedure for that code. It requires the use of a scan tool, but maybe this will be helpful.
