I have a 2000 Grand Caravan. The engine light came on and the
radiator fans will not turn on. I checked the fuses to see if that
was the problem and the fuse for the radiator fans was blown. So I
replaced the fuse but the fans still didn't kick on and it blew the
fuse again. I've been reading a lot of previous discussions on
similar problems and it looks like most people's problems have been
with the relay. Does this sound like a relay problem? How do I know
if it's a relay problem or if the fan motors are just dead? Thanks
for the help.
I checked the fans when I got home last night and sure enough one of
the fans would not spin. So I replaced the fuse and unplugged the
dead fan. When I started up the van the good fan kicked on just
fine. Thanks for the help.
I had this same problem with my grand caravan and it was the thermostat that
controls the fans. Its pretty unlikely that both fans would go bad at the
same time, so you may want to check the thermostat that controls the fans.

Bill, your probably referring to the radiator fan relay module, this relay
burns out and causes an overheat condition an will not allow the fans to
turn on....BUT normally will not cause a blown fuse/fusible link as the OP
