Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The fan turns on after the van has been running for only two minutes. The fan does not turn off
during driving, and its running at full speed the whole time. It does shut off once i turn off the

The temp gauge is in the middle and doesn't show signs of overheating. It does take a long
time for temp gauge to rise to normal when i turn on the car. I think it took about 15-20
minutes. Could the Temperature Sender be too corroded. I was thinking of changing the
Temp Sensor and Sender just because the car is old. 1993 Plymouth Voyager LE 3.3

I'm just not certain why the fan turns on immediately.

Any help is greatly appreciated, i even ordered the repair manual for this van but its going to
probably be here until next week.

You've probably already solved this, but for a reference to others who might see it: The two pin connector in your pictures (closest to the firewall, with a small and large tube going into an aluminum block) is the A/C Low Pressure cutout switch. It will keep the AC clutch from engaging if there is not enough pressure (R-134) in the AC system. The round rubber plug half hidden in the front of the picture should plug onto the two pin connector, simply line the wires up to the flat spades and it'll plug right in. The 6 position, 5 pin connector is the chrysler SCI interface. It's a chrysler specific diagnostic/programming interface along the lines (but different, and IMHO, better than) OBD-II. It should be empty.
