2002 4.7 Radiator Fan Relay code (P1491)

According to my 2002 Service Manual, this code comes up as Radiator Fan Relay Circuit. Under description of DTC, it has an open or shorted condition detected in the radiator fan control relay control circuit. This includes PWM solid state relays. I don't have a code reader. I did the ignition key on/off thing, so I'm not sure where to start. I can't find this relay to check it. Has anyone seen this before or knows where this relay is?

I have seen it, twice. I just had the same thing this week. Its a 25amp mini fuse in the panel under the hood. second row on the left, first fuse. Pull it and you will see its blown. the fan got wet, and blew a fuse. Here is my story from this weekend.

That was it. Thanks I replaced the fuse then had to remove the battery cable to get it to reset. It took it a while to idle but the light is now out and all is fine. Thanks again.

Aha. I even looked at a friend's 4.7 today to find the electric fan. His cooling fan is ye olde conventional. I know the A/C fan is electric.

If you guys want to put an electric fan fir the radiator on a 4.7, then look through the threads for viper fan install. I put a Lincoln Mark VIII fan on my 4.7, and it never even needed the high speed fan. I installed a 218 degree thermal fan switch that kicks the low side fan on, and it kicks off after less than a minute. It really is a worth while upgrade. Less drag on the engine, and anything helps when you go with 22's or more. Easy to do, but time consuming if you anal about how clean the install is like I am.
