P0480 DODGE, CHRYSLER Cooling Fan 1 Control CircuitOpen


Possible causes P0480 Cooling fan 1 control circuit/open

  • CAN bus failure.
  • Engine coolant temp (ECT) sensor DTCs set.
  • Cooling fan control circuit DTCs set in the TIPM.
  • Powertrain Control Module (PCM).


Diagnose code P0480 Cooling fan 1 control circuit/open


Step 1. Cooling fan relay operation

Turn the ignition on, with the scan tool, actuate the cooling fan.

Is the cooling fan operating?

YES, perform the PCM intermittent condition.
NO, go to step 2.

Step 2. CAN C or ECT sensor DTCs currently active

Are any CAN or ECT sensor DTCs active at this time?

YES, perform the appropriate diagnostics for the ECT sensor or CAN C bus DTC. refer to label this site, DTC P codes (PCM).

NO, go to step 3.

Step 3. Cooling fan control circuit DTCs set in the TIPM

Are any cooling fan control circuit DTCs set in the TIPM?

YES, diagnose the appropriate cooling fan control circuit DTC in the TIPM.
NO, go to step 4.

Step 4. Powertrain Control Module (PCM)

Using the wiring diagram/schematic as a guide, inspect the wiring and connectors between the Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) and Powertrain Control Module (PCM). Look for any chafed, pierced, pinched or partially broken wires. Look for broken, bent, pushed out or corroded terminals. Verify that there is good pin to terminal contact in the sensor and PCM connetcors. Perform any service bulletins that may apply.

Were there any problems found?

YES, repair as necessary.
NO, replace and program the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). Perform the PCM Verification test.
