    I taped the connector but it still didn't fix the problem. I wonder if the connector from the jeep harness is bad or a short in in.

    I would give it a try because it sounds like a short. Can't think of anything else since it comes on from moving the wire.

Could be relay but I'm thinking your lines are exposed somewhere between relay and fan and they are shoting out. Thats why it works when you move them. Youi could always electrical tape them (full length) and see if that works. Hope this helps

    I taped the connector and just below.. wonder if it is the connector itself. frustrated... I can't find the end of the connector going to the jeep. I would replace it if I could find the end.

SOURCE: Heatter not working when sitting.

Certainly a flush & fill would help, but if your going that far, you might as well have thermostat done too, as it doesn't appear to be your problem at this point, but why take the chance of it being a problem later. Make sure you ask them to be sure to reverse flush the heater core, it works better at dislodging anything that is clogging it up.

SOURCE: My a/c will blow hot air and then the car will start to over heat

I'm sorry but I'm not sure what exactly the issue is. You stated the Jeep overheated, correct? Then you stated that you had previously taken the Jeep in for work on the a/c. Was this previous to the overheating? And which fan motor are you referring to? The interior vent fan motor or the cooling fan?
The cooling fan has nothing to do with the a/c. It may help increase it's efficiency but the a/c will work fine with out the cooling fan. If you are having trouble with the engine cooling fan after the work you need to return there and make them fix it. You must also remember that the coolant fan works intermittently when the temp reaches the cut-in an cut-out setting. As far as the plug on the fan itself it is a simple connector and easy to replace.

The thing that is of most concern should be, how is the vehicle running since it overheated?
The liberty has twin overhead cam aluminum heads. These are susceptible to warping caused by overheating. If you are need to constantly check and fill the radiator due to overheating you may have other issues other then the Coolant fan.

Please repost with what motor was repaired (a/c vent or cooling fan).
Also did you notice a sweet smell to the smoke when the Jeep overheated?

SOURCE: I have exhaust coming from the middle of the Jeep

It should be ok for now but it sounds like the exhaust either has split or has a hole in it, the heat maybe because the heat sheild is damaged or missing, you should get it to a regular garage as the repair is unlikely to cost much.

sometimes the brackets just come off and need retightening.

Hope this helps

If your fan is not fixed mount but free spinning, the clutch on the mounting center of the fan is slipping too much, in other words there is not enough fan rotation at higher RPM,s

Why is my 2002 jeep liberty over heating


First make sure the coolant level is full. This should be done with while the engine is cold.

If it's full than its most likely a bad thermostat, but could also be a bad water pump, or a bad electric fan ( don't remember off hand if yours has an electric or mechanical fan). If the water pump was bad you would not get heat out of the vents. If there is heat out the vents than the thermostat would be the most likely fix.

2002 LIBERTY OVERHEATING:


do you have a "check engine" light on? A bad temp sensor would give a wrong reading. Do you get heat from your heater core? Also make sure you are getting a good flow from catalytic converter and muffler so you know they aren't plugged heating up engine temp. Also make sure all your heat shields are in tact. Are you using 50/50 mix or mostly water? Though in cold temps you normally want to use more antifreeze less water, I would try more water, less antifrezze.

You need to check your electric fan under the radiator cowl. That pull the heat away from the ac radiator. Liberty's have two fans. One Mechanical and one electric.
