It could be a fuse or a fan relay that has blown or a faulty coolant temperature sensor or fan motor.

SOURCE: 2001 jeep grand cherokee overheating

is the radiator fan coming on and staying on, or not coming on at all?? i was having the same problem, and it turned out to be a fan relay switch which was pretty easy to replace. around 40 bucks, and maybe 30-45 mins.

My 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee had the same problem. Over heated when standing still. Took it to dealer and they could not find any problem with cooling fan. After doing my own investigation I found out that the electric cooling fan would begin to seize up after about 1hr. of operating. (gets hot)

The dealer would look at fan and see that it was running and think its ok. The problem is, it wasn't running fast enough.

I have a relay on the right side of front fender and jumped the fan to stay on with motor off. (must know what your doing). After about 1hr. fan started slowing way down. Returned it to dealer told them what the problem was. They were not smart enough to jump the relay so they put a couple hundred miles on it even though i told them it works OK when moving. Make sure you tell dealer to use the relay to jump.
Replace cooling fan motor. Works great

SOURCE: My Jeep overheats while sitting idle. When I drive, the gauge goes down quickly. I have had thermostat and fan changed. I have also had the radiator flushed. What can it be?

Check your water pump and also sometimes a radiator flush is not good enough more than likely the radiator is blocked you have take to a radiator expert and have pulled apart and cleaned thoroughly

SOURCE: 2001 jeep grand cherokee laredo overheats when

Many cars have a thermoswitch threaded into the radiator that activates the fans when engine exceedes normal optimum opperating temp. This sensor may have failed , or one of the 2 wires that go to it may have come unpluged or broken

My 1995 jeep will die just driving and sometimes will start right back up other times you have to wait about an hour. fuel pump is working fine you can hear it


The pump can be running but not pumping any fuel.
When it stops running you will need to figure out if you are loosing spark to the plugs or fuel to the injectors.

WHAT COULD THE PROBLEM BE?


Check all battery cable connections, including where (negative) attached to frame or engine block. Won't hurt to check wire connector to alternator as well and use voltmeter to check charging system out-put.

probably have air in the lines, you should check your resevoir tank to see if it is full-if so, start the engine when it is cold, removing the cap to the tank-put heater on high, and wait until you see the antifreeze swirling at the bottom of the tank-it should take about 10 minutes for this to happen-then, top off the tank, and close it up-air should now be out. If it still does it, you might consider replacing the thermostat-next would be the heater core (blockage) but I seriously doubt that since it is a 04.
