Radiator Fan Assembly Replacement

My 2011 WK2 with the Hemi and 58,000 miles developed a/c issues when the air temp's been around 90 degrees. It continously cycles between blowing warm or hot and cool air. Took it in two weeks ago to the local dealer and the tech said it worked just fine. Yesterday it was worse. Plus, there was an intermittent vibration and unusual noise emitting from under the hood. Couldn't get them to check it out until today. The tech said this afternoon the radiator fan assembly requires replacement which is now on order. Good thing I purchased the extended warranty as the part costs close to $800 plus 1.5 hours to replace it. Have an appointment for Monday afternoon to complete the repair. Then I'll see how the a/c works.

Re: Radiator Fan Assembly Replacement

Can you post the write up from the dealer on the issue??? I have the same issue and I can't get them to replicate the problem on my end. Only happens on hot days when I'm running the ac and here in the Bay Area the window down is good enough AC so there is really no need to run ac most times

Had to change the appointment to Wednesday afternoon. Will share any additional info after that. Air temp had to be 85+ with around town driving for me have it happen.

Yeah the temp was 100 in the Bay Area and I could hear the fan make bad grinding noises after a while of stop and go traffic.

Re: Radiator Fan Assembly Replacement

The words on my work order say: Diagnose customers concern, radiator fan assembly faulty, noisey, replace radiator fan

That as well as the $100 for my deductable with the extended warranty and I was out the door. Drove it less than 10 miles home in 80 degree weather. No noise so far and the a/c worked well.
