I had a the cooling fan relay replaced about a year ago on my 2006 kia sedona. I have had to bring it back several times because I keep getting the po480 code. The repair shop says it keeps coming lose. they tighten it up, it is goof for a few months and then the check engine light comes back on. Can u tell me where this cooling fan relay is located?

relay is attached to a connecter under the plug to the fan

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Where is the plug to the fan? Do you have a picture of that? All, would the relay be hanging freely, or secured to something?
