at 49,000 miles the check engine light comes on. knowing i probably couldn't afford the repairs at our dealership, i decided to diagnose and repair the vehicle myself. the check engine code read p0480, a code noting a problem with the cooling fan system. after researching the code online, i realized that i was not the only one with this problem. it turns out the town and country, in winter weather, tends to have cooling fans freeze up. as a result, the cooling fan relay will blow out. as i waited for my new relay to arrive in the mail ($47 online, $90 at your dealership) the check engine light turned off. thinking that maybe the vehicle had made a clean trip, i checked the computer again. p0480 was still stored within. the next day i received my new relay via mail, and went to install the part. upon calling brookdale luther's service department to acquire the location of the relay on my vehicle, the service employee, though very helpful, noted that chrysler new of the problem and that i would need an update to my vehicles computer ($120). in response to my question why, i was told that the computer needed to know when the fan motor was jammed to turn the motor off before blowing out the relay. so i could keep buying relays, or pay the $120. my question is this. if chrysler knows of a problem that could cause a vehicle to eventually overheat, which in some cases could cause a fire, why wouldn't they issue a recall. *tr
