    this 99 grand cherokee has the same problem. the fan will not shut off after the engine is turned off. this is the first time it has done this. the temperature gage stayed in the same range it always does. there were no dash lights to come on to indicate any problems. i drove the vehicle for thirty minutes on a trip to town.

Hi Jeepers,

The fan will occassionally continue to run for five or ten minutes after the vehicle shuts down. This is normal.

What is not normal is if it keeps running until the battery drains.

Does it just keep running?
If it eventually shuts off, how long does it take?
Did this just start happening?
The two days you mentioned, were they short trips, opposed to the third day?

If you would comment me back with some more details, it would help me help you.

Mike

My coolant is not working? when driveing it stays cool but as soon as i stop the fan dosnot kick in ad i over heat?


The coolant is working well, because the engine stays cool while driving. The problem is the fan relay, fuse, or the fan itself. Do you have AC? If so, turn it on and you should have instant running of the fan. The normal operation of the fan is: the engine thermal sensor tells the computer that it is getting hot which in turn tells the fan relay to turn on and that is supposed to turn on the fan itself. The fuse protects the high current wire to the fan. Try to turn the fan blades by hand--if stuck or very hard to turn, replace the fan motor. If you can't find the fan relay in the fuse compartment, it may be a solid-state device that is located near the fan motor. Chase the fan wiring back to the relay. Hope this helps!

My 1999 jeep gcl ac line burst and now my radiator fan does not work. Do i need to replace the fan relay or might it be just the fuse?


you should always check the fuse's first, that is a starting point. The coolant fan relays are common to go out in the vehicle.

03 grand cherokee, 4.0, rad fan will not run, checked fuses and replaced relay under headlight


Check the coolant temperature switch. You should have 12V on one side of the switch. If you jumper the two wires in the switch connector, your radiator fan should run with the ignition switch on. If it runs, replace the coolant temperature switch.
