SOURCE: 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee- fan that sits closest to radiator

Have you tested the fan sending unit on the engine? disconnect that and if the fan runs (Key on) that is most likely the problem.

SOURCE: overheating engin when at idel, fan not working

does both the hoses get hot bottom and top? this will tell you if theres flow through the radiator. If you have a voltage tester test the wires on the fan connecter check there is current going to the fan if so replace the fan its a common problem as previously stated. 
if there is no power to the fan when the vehicle should be turning it on i.e. its hot enough check the fan relay under the hood.

SOURCE: airbag light stays on 2005 jeep liberty

It probably will cost a few bucks to get the code reset, but you don't need to go to the dealership, most shops with a good scanner equipped for air bag code reading will be able to diagnose and reset the light. The most probable reason for the code is the battery being dead for a while, there is a capacitor in the airbag circuit to make sure the airbag can go off in a collision even if the battery disconnects itself in the process. There is a slim chance it might be something else but either way the shop should be able to tell you what the problem is, and get it fixed... But, just for fun, before doing all this, i'd disconnect the battery for 30 minutes to an hour and reconnect it back, some systems do effectively reset themselves this way.

SOURCE: how to replace rear brake pads on 2005 jeep liberty

the FSM book covers this.
how to test the fan.
you do this parked.
with a scan tool first. look for dtc errors hot.?
make sure the ECT reads correct using the SCAN tool.
180F+ is good.
the let car idle. it will overheat idling, they all do, but not in Alaska.

as the temp hits the PCM thresholds , the PCM commands on the fan and it runs, dropping temps back to 180F
(can i assume you put in a new thermosat with rad.
that be the perfect moment, they are short lived parts
and the numbers stamped on it it must be OEM spec, temp.
nothing else.

The fan relay closes at too hot temp (PCM decides)
the coil on relay goes to 12vdc (meter across pins)
if coil is 12v and 12v out of relay to fan is 0v.
then the relay is bad.
if the coil never goes hot, we have a serious problem.
the ECT must see the overheat, if there is an air pocket at ECT
it will not read temps, true, but why low, .
and fan will no come on.
that is how it works. most modern car.

Engine light is on after replacing radiator fan. jeep liberty

Check the belt. You have a serpentine belt that you removed to replace the fan. Verify it is on, tight and in the right sequence around the pulleys. The light probably will not be fan related but indirectly from the belt or a component that was moved or disconnected. Start with the fan belt.

Electric fans run all the time

The radiator and A/C condenser fans are triggered by high coolant temperature or when the A/C is turned on. Check to see if you have a relay sticking closed. The (ECT) engine coolant temp. sensor could also be defective telling the computer that he engine is too hot all the time. If you can locate the relay it's much like the others and you can swap it with a good one for a simple function check.
