SOURCE: wher is fan sensor and fuse for radiator cooling fan 2002 jeep ch

Yes your fan relay has failed . Pull you right front headlight assem out . Look threw the holes in the plastic that the light assem set in, it is underneath the plastic screwed to the body. You can pull the grill assem off to get to it or you can cut a 2 by 2 inch hole where the channel is in the plastic where the headlight goes. Citting a hole there wont cause any problems. If you cut a hole , cut it at about the center of the channel at the half way point from the front to the back. This is a solid state relay so it looks different then your typical relay.

SOURCE: radiator fan not working replaced relay,temp

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.

SOURCE: cant find IAT on 99 jeep grand cherokee laredo...

Intake Air Temperature sensor.

It has to be installed ->BEFORE the throttle body, to sense the density of the air entering the intake manifold, based upon intake manifold temperature.

It provides an input voltage to the PCM, (Powertrain Control Module)
It's a Negative Thermal Coefficient sensor, (NTC. It uses two wires)

Meaning, as intake manifold temperature Increases, resistance in the sensor increases.
(Less voltage)
As the temperature Decreases, resistance in the sensor Decreases. (More voltage)

The PCM then uses this input to calculate the following;
1.Injector-Pulse Width
2.Adjustment of spark timing.

Just thought you might want to know.

Wish I knew what size your engine is.
A. The IAT in the 3.7 Liter engine, is located in the Left side, {Drivers} of Intake Manifold Plenum. (BEFORE the throttle body)

See that plastic 'snorkel' tube, that comes from the air cleaner housing, and goes to an oval shaped aluminum housing? That oval shaped, {On the end}, housing is the Intake Manifold Plenum.

The 4.7 Liter engine has the IAT in the same place.
The 4.0 Liter has the IAT installed INSIDE, the Front of the Intake Manifold Plenum. (Before the throttle body)

The color of the two wires are Brown with a Yellow stripe, (Thick 20 gauge wire), and Black with a Red stripe. (Thinner wire. 18 gauge)

SOURCE: 2002 jeep grand cherokee replaced radiator cooling

The airbag light will come on and stay on as long as there is an active code in the system, this means that something is malfunctioning right now so we will turn the light on. You really need to have the codes checked for an accurate diagnosis.

Its possible that you have some problem or your sensor go to bad...

1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable. Wait two minutes for the system capacitor to discharge before further service.
2. From the engine compartment, disconnect the right or left headlamp and dash wire harness connector for the front impact sensor from the sensor connector receptacle
3. From the engine compartment, remove the two screws that secure the right or left front impact sensor to the sensor mounting bracket on the right or left radiator support vertical member.
4. Remove the front impact sensor from the sensor mounting bracket.


That is for replacement, you just reverse the list for install.

Hope helps.

Likely your fan relay has burned closed. The relay is usually found below and behind the r/f headlamp above the vacuum reservoir. (looking from under the vehicle.)...I know, really great place for it! Someday I'd like to meet the engineer that decided to put it there!
