I had the same problem on mine. I took it to the Jeep dealer and there was a recall on this b/c the fan was not coming on and it was fixed for free. I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Hope this helps. Call the dealer, they have to honor this recall.

At this point you have a few items to check. 1. is there power at the fan, if you hot wire the fan to the battery does it come on? 2. is the relay good? (may be in front of battery or in power distribution center.) 3. Is the temperature sending unit good? sender send signal to computer, computer sends ground signal to relay that turns on fan. Also check main fuses in dist center.

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.

Since you have already changed everything that you have, I can not think of anything new that might cause your Jeep to overheat. Are you going by the meter in your vehicle or doing separate temperature measurements? I had a defective temperature gauge that caused me to chase my tail till I did separate measurements.

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.

How do you replace the fan motor in '03 jeep grand cherokee laredo? - the damn thing overheats when idle - changed the relay & coolant sensor... still overheating


When was the last coolant change?
Under 2 years or 24,000 miles.

Change the thermostat and gasket first.

Use a 195F with pop-let protection.

A stuck/failing thermostat is a common cause of over-heating problem.

======
To change the fan,the entire protector plastic has to come out.

Most likely you will break the push in locking pins.

Get few replacement push in locking pins before you start the job.

replace your cooling fan motor relay because if you dont eventually your radiator will explode and this will cause your engine block to crack and then if your fan isn't blowing the engine will continue to overheat and the engine will seize and then you need a new engine. A cooling fan motor relay is around $30.

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