Or check the old one with ohm meter, if so you re welcome tell me what post to test.
Not sure if this will assist you out as I"ve only acquired a organization manual indigenous a "98.. Follow to the company manual:
The heavy state pan relay is attached to the left structure rail near the reduced radiator support. The relay bracket, and fastener are supplied to dissipate warmth from the relay. Certain the relay is appropriately attached to avoid the following:Intermittent engine overheating.Relay "thermal" shutdown, or relay damage.
I can not find any images in the hand-operated to help you out. The sounds together if the relay is unique, for this reason there would be no substitution with another that can be in something favor the power circulation block. Unfortunately, I"ve never ever gone looking, nor have I seen it, therefore can"t really tell you for sure...

You sure you have actually a 99? What girlfriend described, is where the relay is top top 1996 come 1998 vans. It was relocated to under the headlight to get it right into a cooler air stream to help in cooling the relay. Relays overheating and failing is a trouble Chrysler has actually been continuous trying come fix. That would aid if you mounted the brand-new relay under the headlight prefer the newer vans.Also, how did you affix the brand-new relay? The factory uses a heat transferring grease between the relay and the framework rail to assist in cooling, and also the bolts or rivets themselves conduct heat as well. The 2001 and newer vans also have a finned warmth sink on peak of the relay to assist air cool the relay.

You certain you have a 99? What friend described, is where the relay is on 1996 come 1998 vans. The was relocated to under the headlight to get it into a cooler waiting stream to help in cooling the relay. Relays overheating and also failing is a problem Chrysler has been continually trying to fix. That would help if you an installed the brand-new relay under the headlight prefer the more recent vans.Also, just how did you connect the brand-new relay? The manufacturing facility uses a warm transferring grease between the relay and the structure rail to help in cooling, and the bolts or rivets themselves conduct warm as well. The 2001 and also newer vans even have a finned heat sink on height of the relay to aid air cool the relay.
Yup i am sure its a 99. Well technically correct its listed below the headlight, method below, but removing the headlight go not help in removal. Choose I said before is close to the bottom that vehicle mounted on ideal side structure rail. Easiest means to carry out it is eliminate the entirety air filter housing, and also BOOM over there she be. Didnt usage no warmth grease reason it didnt come v any. However bought the lifetime guarentee part so if it goes bad, I"ll acquire a brand-new one and then use the grease.
Not sure if this will aid you out as I"ve only obtained a company manual from a "98.. According to the company manual:I can not find any type of images in the manual to assist you out. The sounds together if the relay is unique, therefore there would be no substitution with one more that can be in something like the power circulation block. Unfortunately, I"ve never ever gone looking, nor have I seen it, therefore can"t yes, really tell you because that sure...
sorry dude but like the above^^^ ns can"t really aid you to together I"ve never come across a pan relay difficulty like that. Apologies because that failing to assist out.
When you have actually a chance, buy a little tube of heat sink link from RadioShack or another source, and also apply it come the mounting surface. The should aid with the longevity of the relay.
On mine 99 cool caravan sport it to be under the headlight. Then under a black color cover. There to be no grease left under the relay.
