Chrysler 300 with only 37,000 miles overheated & towed in
What would cause two cooling fan motors to be out at the same time? One possibility is that they didn’t fail at the same time, one failed and the car was still able to be driven until the other failed also. But two fan motors failing on a car that only has 37,000 miles didn’t make sense either. Obviously power and ground supply was first checked with a power probe to verify the motors were getting the correct input to allow them to run. Once the fan motors were replaced, a terrible ticking noise was heard. More pictures below:

The ticking sound was both fan blades with a single split each.
Without replacing the blades at the same time the motors would have failed again.
As seen in the above pictures, the cause of the faulty motors could easily have been the broken fan blades. With the splits in the blades and the tight clearance they have with the fan shroud, lots of rubbing occurred. The interference not only slows down the blades, it could also burn out the motors prematurely. The dealer had these fan blades in stock… the reason they keep these IN STOCK could be for collision shops. But unless we miss our guess there will be a lot more of these weak designed fan blades “coming to a shop near you.”
Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger sedans recalled due to overheating anti-lock brake systems
Chrysler is recalling nearly 120,000 2011-2012 Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 sedans in the U.S. The vehicles have electronic stability control (ESC) and anti-lock brake systems (ABS) which may overheat and cause loss of control, warns the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
According to company reports, Chrysler is unaware of any injuries, deaths or accidents due to the overheating ESC and ABS units in the sedans. The issue also affects about 8,725 Dodge Chargers and Chrysler 300s in Canada.
NHTSA says Chrysler will notify Dodge Charger and Chrylser 300 owners affected by this recall this month. Owners will be instructed to bring in their recalled Chrysler vehicles to dealerships where mechanics will relocate the systems' fuse boxes for free.
For more information, consumers can contact Chrysler toll-free at 800-853-1403 or visit the NHTSA website at: www.safercar.gov.

Overheating fuse prompts Chrysler to recall 119,000 cars
NEW YORK (CNNMoney) – Chrysler Group is recalling about 119,000 model year 2011 and 2012 Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger sedans in the United States because of a problem that could cause the anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control systems to malfunction.
Anti-lock brake systems pump a car’s brakes extremely rapidly in order to prevent the wheels from “locking up” during hard braking. Locking up can lead to loss of control and longer stopping distances because it can cause a car to skid.
Electronic stability control systems, which also use computerized brake controls, intervene to prevent a car from skidding during sharp turns or abrupt maneuvers.
In the recalled cars a fuse for the computer controller that operates those safety systems can overheat, causing it to lose effectiveness.
Owners will be asked to bring their vehicles to Chrysler dealers to have the fuse replaced. The new fuse will be mounted in a different location inside the car where it won’t be subject to extreme temperatures.
The problem was first discovered on Dodge Charger police cars. Chrysler engineers initially believed the problem was confined to police models. Further research, however, showed that civilian cars were also experiencing the problem.
Although they look different, the Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 are both based on the same underlying engineering.
“Despite a small number of incidents, we concluded it was in the best interest of our customers to repair the vehicles and eliminate the potential for this condition to occur,” David Dillon, Chrysler’s head of product investigations and campaigns said in a statement.
No accidents or injuries have been reported as a result of the problem, according to Chrysler.
2012 Chrysler 300 - Thermostats
Your engine thermostat controls the flow of coolant from your engine to your radiator. A thermostat is designed to open and close at specific temperatures to regulate the temperature of engine coolant. A thermostat that is stuck open can cause the engine to heat up slowly, or not at all. This may affect your engine's performance as well as your heater. If the thermostat doesn’t open, or won’t stay open, the coolant won’t move to the radiator and the engine will overheat, causing damage to gaskets and internal engine parts. If you’ve noticed these symptoms, consider replacing your thermostat with a new one from O’Reilly Auto Parts. We carry cooling system repair parts for most cars, trucks, and SUVs.Show More Show Less
Chrysler 300 overheating 2012
Overheating can be caused by a few things:
- Coolant isn't circulating - pump, thermostat or other blockage
- Insufficient coolant. Leaks, getting burned or air pockets.
- System isn't holding pressure (cap or a leak)
- Fans not working correctly. (Easiest to check)
Some possibilities are:
Radiator cap, as you mentioned, which keeps the system from being properly pressurized.
Fan isn't running. This doesn't have much of an effect other than when going very slow or parked. Could be a bad temp sensor, wiring to the fan or the fan motor. Fans rarely fail, but temp sensors are a maintenance item.
Leaks. Radiator, overflow tank, hoses, etc.
Water pump and/or thermostat. These will cause coolant not to circulate correctly. So, it just sits in place in the engine and gets hot.
Head gasket(s). Coolant can leak into the cylinder and get vaporized, leaving you with insufficient coolant. The car may or may not run rough if this happens, depending on the severity of the breach in the gasket. You'd typically see white smoke (steam) coming out of the tail pipe, but it could be too faint to notice if the leak isn't large.
Air pocket in the system, as a result of a leak or coolant system service. If no one recently touched the engine, this is unlikely unless one of the other issues mentioned above is present.
I'd start by pressure-testing the system. Some autoparts stores (O'Reilly comes to mind) will "loan" you a kit to do this. (Loan means you put down a deposit equal to the purchase price, and they'll refund it when you bring it back.) It's basically a bicycle pump with a pressure gauge, adapter for your radiator or reservoir. You pressurize the system and look for leaks: either visible leakage, or a drop in pressure on the gauge.
If that doesn't show a leak, do a compression test, or test the coolant for exhaust gaskets. Those would reveal a problem with the head gasket.
In any case, don't drive the car when it's overheating. These problems can get a LOT worse, very fast. If it gets hot enough, you'll be replacing the entire engine. If coolant is making its way into the oil pan (bad head gasket), the engine can seize since coolant doesn't lubricate very well. Too much heat can warp the heads and/or engine block.
