I have a 2013 dodge Durango r/t. My radiator fan is

Customer Question
I have a 2013...

I have a 2013 dodge Durango r/t. My radiator fan is inoperable. I attached 12volts directly to the pins, no go. I have since replaced the radiator fan and it still does not work. And now a new problem I cannot link to the pcm with my code reader, leaving me to believe I have a sensor that is shorted out. Before it reader stopped linking. I had P code P0480. The check engine light is on solid.

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

On constant

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Durango yourself? What have you tried so far?

No I had an auto body shop put the new fan in as they were painting my vehicle. So far I've only tried disconnectingbthe batery

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Battery oops

A.c. works
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
At least until coolant temp gets too hot
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Just the cooling fan
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
A.c. blows upon request
