Hello, Im Ron . Im going to Try to Help you Here. First the Cooling Fan. The Cooling Fan has A Micro-Relay # 37 In the Fuse/Relay Box UNDER_-HOOD IN this type Circuit You Have 3 Step Process to Control the Fan, 1 is the Temperature Sensor, 2 Is the Relay, 3 is the Fan. When Engine Gets Up to Operating temp. 220 Degrees the Sensor Grounds out & signals ECM of Engine
Temp and ECM Tickles the Relay to Turn ON the Fan.
In your Case I would RULE OUT Poor + Terminal Connections @ Battery Accessory Cables. AND Poor - Terminal @ Battery & Or Body Ground
THEN Test the Fan By BYPASSING to it With a Test wire With A + wire to the + side of Fan this is to Make Sure it Works .
Some Techs. Replace Sensor and Relay as A Pair Sense the Two are Fairly Inexpensive, but usualy you can Hear & or Feel the Relay "CLICK" If None Replace it. Shift Lock, Theres A Soliniod at Shifter that Unlocks ti WHEN you Apply the BRAKE, it is Controled By the Brakelight Switch.
I Strongly Suggest That you Check All Harness's From Battery to Interior, & Fuse Box.
I Know this seems Wild But With Limited Resorces & Lititure to work from this Is Where I Go.

Check the wiring from the relay to the fan motor, and check the wiring from the fuse block. Basically check all wires that supply power to the fan motor, use a volt meter. Fan Relay (behind headlight, under battery) on the 2001 GC 4.0L are a piece of ****, I change mine almost yearly. The problem is their location, a high heat area prone to the elements. I understand that 2002 and newer, the location was changed and the problem solved. Relay might close the circuit when cold or at reasonable temps, but might open a circuit when it heats up, causing the problem.

there is a splice for fuel injectors at the front of the fuel rail conduit and electric tape will need to be removed to see if it is ok then clean up all engine grounds and ecm grounds on passenger side kick panel if this doesnt help check coils and crank sensor

Radiator fan fuse is fuse # 5 (40 amp/Green) located behind the interior fuse access panel on the left side of the instrument panel next to the steering column. Also, in the underhood Power distribution center, next to the air cleaner filter are two black fan relays: high speed (F) at the far left, second row down and a low speed, 1st one to the right on the bottom row.
