Question about 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee
My 1999 Grand Cherokee would overheat in a matter of 20 mins or so if i am doing normal street driving. If i am on the freeway with no traffic, my truck would be fine and not overheat because it would get natural air to the radiator, so i dont think its the radiator.
I have replaced my thermostat, fan motor, water pump, and my coolant temperature sensor, because i took my electric fan out and tested it with negative and positive current and it didnt come on. After replacing the above mention, it tested the electric fan, and it works fine. After installing it back in the truck, the fan comes on at times, but when the truck starts to reach operating temperature and the fan should come on, i open the hood and the fan is not on.
I am about to drain the entire cooling system, hoping that i just dont see the fan come on when it actually does, but please give me advice on what to do if this does not correct the issue. The reason i think the fan is coming on, but not staying on as long as it should is because prior to replacing all i did, the truck would over heat in about 20mins all the time on street driving, only except if i was on the highway with no traffic, but now the only way it over heats is if i am sitting in traffic where i am basically still for extended amount of times.
Facia just means the bumper covering, and the relay is located underneath the right head lamp assembly easiest way to acess this is to remove the head alm assembly, i mean not just the bulb but the whole assembly.But before doing this make sure that there is no air trapped inside the cooling sys which prevents water from circulating and thus causing the over heating!!

These have been plagued with faulty cooling fan relays. The relays are a little different than common relays in that they are pulse-width modulated. These cost 3-4 times as much as normal relays.
The relay is hard to get to. The factory manual actually recommends removing the bumper fascia. This can be accomplished much more simply by removing the passengers (right) headlight. I can provide more detail if you wish to repair the problem yourself.
