2003 Grand Cherokee Overheating

Basically the Jeep overheats slowly when sitting idle and driving. I noticed the radiator fan comes on. The radiator is 2yrs old and I just replaced the water pump. I was thinking about going after the thermostat next??

The belt looks to be in good shape so I don't think its slipping.

This might help you as it looks as though you have an electric fan to cool , there should be a sensor on your radiator hoses upper and lower.they are actually switches triggered by the coolant temperature in side the hose. While your Jeep is sitting idle, shut off the AC as it adds to the heat off the engine not to merntion useing more gas. you should make sure both high and low speeds on the coolant fan work. good luck if this does'nt help check out the post, with more, on the 1995 Jeep heating up..

1999 grand cherokee laredo overheating when idling for 15 min. or so. Not when driving, everything ok. radiator replaced about 8-9 months ago, water pump pretty new, and extra electric fan worked on about...


Chanches are it is probably the fan. Anything over 15 miles an hour the fan is no longer needed. I would get a cheap hydrometer and make sure your antifreeze is still good.

Overheating while Eating


Bad themostat, dirty radiator (the front of it), corroded interior core of the radiator, weakening water pump, bad radiator fan.....just to name a few. More than likely? Low antifreeze level, or the thermostat.

Over heating when sitting at idle for a short while


It sounds like it may be your electric cooling fan. When the car is sitting idling does the fan behind the radiator ever come on? If not then this is your problem. Your car doesn't overheat when it moving because you're passing air through the radiator with the movement of the car. The problem could be the fan itself, the fan relay, or a temperature sensor.

2001 jeep grand cherokee laredo overheats when vehicle sits idling. Cools down when i take off and drive down the road...??? Please help. thanks


Many cars have a thermoswitch threaded into the radiator that activates the fans when engine exceedes normal optimum opperating temp. This sensor may have failed , or one of the 2 wires that go to it may have come unpluged or broken

My Jeep overheats while sitting idle. When I drive, the gauge goes down quickly. I have had thermostat and fan changed. I have also had the radiator flushed. What can it be?


we have a 2003 and it did the very same thing . Its called cooling fan relay it costs about 60.00 and is located behind the headlight assembly . not very hard to fix if you know anything about cars .

This means your thermostat is bad. Needs to be replaced. Also do coolant flush.
