You need to put power directly to the fan motor to test. when you turn on the a/c the fans should work too.

Car overheating

Two things to check:

1. Make sure you do not have an air bubble in your cooling system. Easiest way is to park facing uphill and let the car cool off. Remove the radiator cap, start the car and let run until the thermostat opens. If there are air bubbles in the cooling system the should be forced out. Top off fluid.
2. Are you sure that the cooling fan is running? When the car is getting hot, open the hood and make sure the radiator fan is actually turning.

Were is the temperature sensor location on a jeep grand cherokee yr. 2004 with a 4-0 engine inline 6 this sensor runs the cooling fan on the radiator

The coolant sensor is in the front the thermostat housing that the top radiator hose goes to has the sensor in it, but if your wandering cause your cooling fans do not work it's most likely not the sensor. The largest proble I have seen with them is the cooling fan relay, the part is roughly $60-80.00, but that's the easy part, a shop will charge you out your rear to do it cause technically you should remove the complete whole front facia and bumper assy to do it, but there is a trick, if you plan on fixing this yourself let me know I'll clue u in on a little bit easier way.. Oh generally when the relay goes bad you will also have a check engine light on as well!! Usually cooling fan relay control circuit!

Who do you replace a radiator

Before you start remove the ground cable from your battery. Remove the radiator shroud that covers the top of the radiator.Then there should be a connector that plugs into the cooling fans disconnect this plug.There are 2 or 4 bolts that hold the cooling fans in place.Remove the bolts and the cooling fans.Then you want to drain your cooling system.Once its drained remove the upper and lower radiator hoses and the overflow tube.Then you want to remove the transmission cooling lines on the left side of the radiator.Be sure to put a pan under it because it might leak a little fluid out of them.Now on the top of the radiator there are two brackets that hold the radiator in place.Remove these brackets and carefully remove the radiator.Alittle tip for you when you put the new radiator take the box it came in and cut pieces of cardboard to cover the fin area so that when you put the cooling fans in you don't damage the new radiator.Once there in then you can pull the cardboard out.Once you have it installed and everything is hooked back up fill it with anti freeze and check for leaks.

When i turn the A/C on, the temperature begins to rise and it begins to spill the antifrezze from the radiator reservoir. Dont know what the problem is.

You evidently have a problemwith your engine cooling system. Check to make sure that the cooling fins on your A/C Condensor and Radiator are not clogged up with dirt and debris. Check that your mechanical fan clutch has some resistance to pushing it by hand. If it spins too freely. the fan clutch could be worn out. Check to see how much air it is actually moving through the radiator. When the engine is at operating temperature and the A/C is on, This fan should be turning at a very high speed and blowing HOT wind in your engine compartment. I believe that your vehicle is also equipped with an electric cooling fan. The electric cooling fan should be running any time the A/C compressor is engaged. If not, then you must diagnose this failure.

I want to know what the engine look likes with the radiaters and fans in it

I know that this may not be what you want, but it does cover how to remove the Engine Fans REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. On some models, it may be necessary to disconnect the coolant hoses from the radiator to allow clearance for removing the fans. If so, drain the cooling system, then disconnect the hoses.
  3. Unplug the fan electrical connections.
  4. Remove the mounting bolts holding the fan shroud and remove the shroud with the fan. Once removed, the fan blade may be unbolted from the shaft and the fan motor removed from the shroud. Fig. 1: The fan shrouds are secured to the radiator with a series of small bolts 86803064.jpg
    Fig. 2: When removing the fan shroud, be careful not to damage the radiator cooling fins 86803065.jpg
    To install:
  5. Position the fan on the radiator and install the mounting bolts. Tighten them to 5 ft. lbs. (7 Nm).
  6. Engage the electrical connections.
  7. If applicable, refill the cooling system.
  8. Start the engine and allow it run until it reaches normal operating temperature. Check that the fan(s) turn on. Check for leaks.
