I actually punched a hole in the headlight mounting panel .. About the size of a tennis ball.. to access the fan relay. After replacing 4 times in a year I finally hard wired my fan on to a switch.. Got tired of dealing with unexpected relay failures that risked me burning up the engine when the issues occurred without notice. I can email pics if need be just email me at blue35th at

How do i test the fan relay in my 2002 grand cherokee

Make sure the fan works you could turn the ac on which should command fan in. If it doesnt come on then most likely the fan is bad. To test the relay would be harder as the relay is located under the right headlight. To gain access to it you would have to remove the headlight and the bumper facia. In the field technicians have shortcut this process by removing the headlight and cutting a hole in the plastic lining but you would have to have knowledge of where it's located to place the hole correctly. After cutting the hole then the relay is accessible and can be removed by un bolting it and unplugging it.

Where is the engine cooling fan relay located on a 2002 jeep grand cherokee laredo

It is located under the right (passenger) headlight assembly. The headlight assembly must be removed first. The quickest way is to use a Dremel tool to cut an opening in the headlight bucket. Go to YouTube and search for this procedure. I did it on my 2002 and it worked like a charm. Using the Dremel is easier than removing the entire header panel and other headlight. The Dremel procedure saves about 2 hours on the job.

How do you remove the fan relay sensor on a 2004 Grand Cherokee

The fan relay sensor is behind the vacuum reservoir which is below the right (passenger) headlight and behind the bumper cover. Remove the headlight and remove the bumper cover. The fan relay sensor is fastened by two screws. You may need to drill a hole in the headlight 'saddle' to get to the screws.
