Jeep WJ Grand Cherokee
The Radiator Cooling Fan Relay Switch for a 2003 Jeep Cherokee is located behind the bumper on the passenger side underneath the headlight.
There are two ways of accessing it:
1. Remove the bumper.
2. Remove the pasenger side headlight assembly and cut a hole in the plastic underneatch click on the link below for more info.
The relay seems to be a common replacement item for this vehicle. One cause of the failure is that the relay overheats, per a note inserted in the replacement part packaging.
The cutout method is used by dealers. In one vehicle, the relay failed again after 40,000 miles or so. While replacing the relay it was noted that it was secured by one screw and it was not tight. This did not provide thermal contact with the chassis which helps cool the relay. The cause of the second failure was likely due to improper installation. Trying to work through a cutout would seem to make it difficult to get both screw isntalled securely. Furthermore, the new parts today use steel pop rivets for installation to help guarantee it will maintain proper thermal contact with the chassis. The pop rivets cannot be isntalled without removing the bumper.
It is not difficult to remove the bumper and grill to get to the relay. It sounds like a big deal but you are talking a half dozen screws and less than a dozen plastic rivets. The act of cutting a hole and working in cramped quarters has to be more difficult and it does not provide as quality a job.
Hope help with this (remember rated this post).

Although rare, it is possible that the fan motor is bad. I don't know if the connectors are the same or if there is only one connector for the fans. My point is try to switch the connectors and turn the a/c on. One fan runs off the coolant temperature sensor and the other off the a/c hen the compressor is running. It basically senses a load on the engine and engages the fan. The one that works has power to it so you know if it does not run the other fan, the problem is the fan. If you have the V6, it may just not be getting hot enough for the fan to kick on. If you have the 5.7L, I would definitely confirm the fan is good because those engines are designed to run hot and they get up to running temperature very quick. Please rate me on this answer.

Radiator cooling fan is not electric, it is driven by a silly hydraulic pump which is located low on the passenger side of the engine above the alternator. All 2000-2002 LS's have this system. Most likely either the motor or pump has failed.
