Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Open Question

2000 Jeep grand cherokee Fan stopped working. Replaced the fan relay that got it spinning but overheated when parked with ac on. So I replaced the plug with the one that came with the relay and the small blak wire shorted against the gray wire and blew the fuse. Now the fan wont work at all. Tested the fan it works fine. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: my 2002 jeep cherokee laredo is over heating

The relay sits under the hood in a black box.If your not handy with a volt meter or test light you wont be able to tell if the relay is bad.You could just replace the relay as its cheap and pops in like a fuse or you can unplug the fan and run a wire to the positive side of the battery,if the fan comes on the relay is most likley the issue if the fan doesent come on then the fan may be faulty.If you turn the air conditioning on the fan should come on,if it does i would check the water pump.

SOURCE: radiator fan not working replaced relay,temp

Check the wiring from the relay to the fan motor, and check the wiring from the fuse block. Basically check all wires that supply power to the fan motor, use a volt meter. Fan Relay (behind headlight, under battery) on the 2001 GC 4.0L are a piece of ****, I change mine almost yearly. The problem is their location, a high heat area prone to the elements. I understand that 2002 and newer, the location was changed and the problem solved. Relay might close the circuit when cold or at reasonable temps, but might open a circuit when it heats up, causing the problem.

Once the radiator fan operates when hot, then that part of the system is fine. It definitely sounds like the radiator needs flushing out. I had this same problem with a taurus and I flushed the radiator out for a good twenty minutes; you should have seen the stuff that came out! Disconnect the lower hose and drain **** then stick the garden hose in the radiator cap. I would surely do this.

Ok, fans work but you should replace temp. sensor so they come on automatic. If the temp gauge inside the car is getting really hot its either because the termostat is stuck closed or your water pump is pumping water to circulate it through the radiator and engine

If the fans don't come on to cool the radiator then maybe it's the thermal fan switch, which sends the turn on signal to the fan relay, that might be bad.

replace your cooling fan motor relay because if you dont eventually your radiator will explode and this will cause your engine block to crack and then if your fan isn't blowing the engine will continue to overheat and the engine will seize and then you need a new engine. A cooling fan motor relay is around $30.

Overheating


IT COULD BE THE FAN FUSE OR FAN RELAY, IF THE FAN IS DRIVEN BY THE ENGINE TRY CHECKING THE FAN CLUTCH. IF THE FAN SPINS FREELY WHILE IT IS COOL, THEN WAIT FOR THE ENGINE TO HEAT UP AND SHUT THE ENGINE OFF AND TRY TURNING THE FAN BY HAND. IF THERE IS LITTLE OR NO RESISTANCE THEN REPLACE THE FAN CLUTCH. IF THE FAN IS ELECTRIC THEN REPLACE THE FUSE AND RELAY LOCATED UNDER THE HOOD IN THE FUSE PANEL. HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA. BEST OF LUCK.

Fan resistor


I had the same issue on my 1999 Grand Cherokee. I replaced the fan motor which was only 68.00 from Auto Zone and the fan relay sensor which is located behind the front left side of the bumper, which was about 30.00 from Autozone. I would suggest testing the motor with the 12V (fused). You can test it with your car battery, if it works, then i would suggest replacing your fan motor sensor, behind the front left side of the bumper.
