Exclamation URGENT! Cooling fan not coming on!

I am at a local M&G, on the way my cooling fans stopped running. Even when the A/C is turned on I have no fans running. Fuse is good, no trouble codes, what could cause this?

what is your temperature reading on the car? Does it get hot when sitting still? If it is you need to run your heater to pull the engine temp down. Get it to the dealer and have them look at it. If it gets too hot you could warp a head.


GRIP IT AND RIP IT!

Check that the relays in the front power distribution center are fully inserted in their sockets. One or two of them control the fans. Pull one out at a time and re-insert it. Then another.

Fuses and relays were fine. Took it to the dealer Monday and it turns out the motor in both fans were done. Has since been fixed and I added a few mods to the car as well.

Running the fans with Predator has been known to burn out the fans.

With the Predator you can control what temp the fans come on. You can leave it stock if you want. So no need to worry about buying the Predator. A lot of folks set the fans to come on earlier than stock, which I think is around 219 degrees, to keep the engine temps lower.

'06 300C SRT-8 with 31k on the clock.

I dont have a 300 but my 06 Magnum SRT 8 with 41K on the clock, engine cooling fans just stopped running convienetly at my local STEALership. I am told $590 and i will be back on the road with two fan motors, i cant afford it. I want to do this on my own. I already got taken for a ride with $480 "brake pads ONLY" for the front and $410 for the rear which i am told by Hunter Dodge in Lancaster, CA that these are priced becuase it is a perfpormance vehicle and everyone pays these prices, I am not everyone. Does anyknow any place to buy these fan motors and are the simple enough to replace for a shade tree mechanic, or do i stock up on Ramen noodle now and give in to the dealership ? I NEED HELP NOW someone email me and let me know?

I dont have any mods just plain ol stock SRT8 Magnum
