How to test and replace radiator cooling fan.


Hi.

Here a tip illustrating steps to test and replace the radiator cooling fan and the parts that may cause cooling fan malfunctioning.

Before replacing the fan, make sure that the fan is really faulty.
Read volts at fan contacts or jump the fan wiring to energize the fan directly.Ensure that fan blades are not blocked.

If the fan is OK, then the faulty part is either thermostat or fan relay.Ensure also that you have tested the 15A fuse in the junction block and the 40A fuse located in the Power distribution Center (PDC).

Here a diagram showing the location of the fan relay:

Finally, here below the steps required to replace the fan. The procedure is quite simple.

  • Disconnect the battery negative cable and set it apart.
  • Disconnect the electrical connector to the radiator fan.
  • Undo the bolts that hold the top fan housing and fan assembly (this is called Radiator Shroud).
  • Remove the Radiator Shroud housing.The radiator shroud will come out with the fan sliding toward the top side.
  • Install the new fan performing the operations in reverse order.

Here a diagram showing radiator shroud and cooling fan assembly:

More then likely it is you heater relay. it is located inside the vehicle on the passenger side under the glove box. You will have to remove the cover under the glove box and you will find it there. Should take about 30 to replace it.

Fan relay is located under pass headlight. Remove light assembly, use 2 1/2 " hole saw to drill hole in plastic housing ,3"from back wall, 3'' from left side.This will put you right over relay. Unscrew two bolts,replace. Relay was $40.... dealer wanted$350 to remove front bumper to replace it.

Radiator fan not operating, radiator fan relay

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).

Need to replace fan relay can't find it


Behind your battery, there's a black plastic cover that once removed, you'll be able to see all the relays and fuses. Yes, it's known as your "Power Distribution Center", and your cooling fan "fuse" (which is quite a bit larger than your normal fuses), is fuse number 13 which is a 20 amp yellow fuse. Underneath the cover you removed there's a diagram of all the relays and fuses...just FYI.

Good Luck,

Electrical short!


That sounds like the cooling fan relay. Find fuse/relay cover and check condition of fan relay. It should be labeled. Easy to replace.

Good luck,
