I ASSUME YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT THE RADIATOR FAN. THERE IS A TEMP SENDING UNIT THAT TELLS THE FAN WHEN TO OPERATE. THE SENSOR IS PROBERLY BAD. THERE ARE 2 SENSORS, 1 FOR THE LIGHT/GAUGE AND 1 FOR THE ECM. DISCONECT THE SENSOR IF FAN GOES OFF REPLACE IT, IF IT STAYS ON CHECK THE FAN RELAY. UNPLUG IT ,IF FAN GOES OFF NOW THEN RELAY HAS FAILED

2002 jeep liberty sport will not start. It won,t even turn over. drove it yesterday no problems. after 1 hour tried to start didn,t work Can you help?


Have you tried to jump started ? If your jeep starts when giving it a jump, you may have a bad battery. Check fuses for fuel and ignition systems. If your battery is bad, could be because the alternator is not charging it. Might want to have this component tested.

Possible solution - This happened to me and my battery was dead in my key fob and also I needed an ignition switch because a piece on it was broken which therefore wouldn't turn to start the engine.

Our jeep liberty won't start. the battery will not turn over when we try to jump it. all lights, radio, inside lights turning lights work. The electric key will not lock it unless it is used manualy....


have a load test done on the original battery as it appears that you have a shorted cell that is draining all the power from the jump battery.

1988 jeep won't start


Not sure if I read your post right, but you have to have a hot wire to the ignition switch from the battery, independent of anything else on the car, before the switch will work.
The CPS is a common problem on the jeeps, though. If bad, you may not get a coil signal.

Check your alternator by starting engine and removing negative battery cable while running. If engine stops, replace alternator.

Radiator fan constantly runs even when ignition is off. It continues until it drains the battery.


Under the hood should be a fuse box with a relay marked for the fan. Remove the relay and see if the fan stops running. It's possible that the relay latched and is stuck. There should be another relay in the panel that is the same as the fan relay. Try swapping them. If the fan continues to run, there could be a short underneath the fuse box (Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep were known for their fuse boxes corroding and shorting), or it's a possibility that the engine computer is telling the fan to run even when off indicating a bad computer. I would lean toward the fuse box however.

Radiator fan wont turn off..engine is off but the fan still turns, and the radiator is not hot.


I had the same problem with my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee. After checking the conventional relays and fuses, we found an additional auxiliary cooling fan relay behind the front bumper. Once replaced, all is well. I wish you good luck!
