A/C Fan Question - Relay related
 
Hey guys,

So I'm no mechanic so please go easy on me. When I first bought my truck I noticed when it was in park with the A/C on, I could hear the fan kick on or speed up...whatever it does. Well the past month Ive noticed its stopped doing so. Well needless to say I then started noticing that the A/C only blows cold while Im moving. Sit at a read light and boom, hot air!

I've tried reading up on it but I guess I'm just trying to cover all my bases here.

I read that I need to check the Fuse, Relay and then the fan.

I looked at the Fuse and it seemed fine. Even grabed a new one just in case. Didnt fix it.

Pulled a relay but now I cant find a replacement. I hope I pulled the right one. The number on top says its a OMRON G8HE-1A7T-R1-DC12 but I cant find one anywhere at any store. Now Im wondering if I even pulled the right RELAY!:LOL:

Does anyone know if I pulled the right Relay?

I know people replace the fans but I dont remember seeing anything about anyones fans going out on them.

Okay I contacted a local Dodge dealership and the guy said its less likely the Relay and more likely the "condensor fan module". Is that just his fancy way of saying the condensor fan itself?

Just wanted to post an update just incase anyone stumbles on this later.

I went ahead and ordered new relays to rule out a relay problem.

If this doesnt help the fan kick on, then I will probably just replace the fan with an aftermarket one. I asked the stealership how much it would cost me.....he replied "Part runs 435.17 (tax included) and labor would be 275.00" so yea....I will be doing this myself.

I will keep this updated for future reference.

I have the same year truck where this happens only when im idling for longer then 5mins. does your coolant temp rise above the middle mark too? I notice when the temp goes to about 210F the a/c cuts off and once I start moving it get cold again. Let me how it goes because I am not the mechanic either.
