It is fairly easy to get to and they do need replacement now and then. You have to take part of the dash apart and the glove box door. It will expose a few screws that hold the fan and motor, you can try a little oil, but it will be temporary. I have oiled mine up twice so far, it's holding but the wife still complains, I just turn up the radio. Hope this helps.

I am thinking you are on the right track. A noisy, wobbly fan has to be replaced and replacing the thermostat could reduce the fan speed as the problems are interrelated.

Fan relay location for 1999 Jeep cherokee


If anyone has a Jeep cherokee and the electric fan doesn't work. First jump the fan motor with a hot wire. If it works you'll need a relay. The fun part.........Pull out the right side headlight assembly, if there is no hole close to the inner fender to access it. One will have to cut out aprox. 3" hole to access the fan relay.

This is a common problem. It is much more common in vehicles that do not move for several days at a time. It is usually caused by rodents getting into the blower housing and building nests.

The blower motor assembly must be removed to clean out the debris. Here are the instructions for your vehicle:

BLOWER MOTOR

Removal and Installation

Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove right front door scuff plate. Remove kick panel. Remove lower dash trim panel. Unplug blower motor connector. Remove blower motor. To install, reverse removal procedure.

2000 v6 4.0 jeep grand cherokee ltd overheating problem,anti freeze over flowing out of over flow tube


Several causes for that. First, check for any external leaks. Check engine oil for any coolant intrusion and check tailpipe for excessive smoke.(possible head gasket problem)
Main common causes of overheat are lack of flow: bad thermostat, (after an overheat, thermostats become unreliable replace it as "routine" they are inexpensive.) internally or externally obstructed radiator (internal, flush or replace, external, clean leaves bugs etc from outside front of radiator.) A radiator that takes a long time to fill generally is internally blocked. Bad cooling fan, fan sensor or relay. (make sure electric fan comes on when engine reaches or is just above normal temp...If not, hot wire fan motor to battery....replace if it does not run. find and check
relay if there is no power and ground at the fan plug harness when fan
should be on...relay may be in power distribution center or below right front headlight, best accessed from below. If no ground signal at relay from the computer, check the temp sender. (sender sends info to computer which sends ground to relay that sends power to fan motor)
If water pump is not leaking or noisy, leave it alone...they will pump even when the seal and bearing are horribly bad...there is no "secret stuff" in there.
It also won't hurt to check the clutch fan if you have one....it should spin free when cold and offer some resistance when hot. Pretty rare they fail but they can.
Any questions just ask
good luck!

I just bought a new radiator fan relay.(not the one in the fuse box, the one with a heat sink) I've been told it's behind the bumber and also told right side of engine. any help on location?


This is a fan module(relay)It should be ,if you are standing in front of van,and facing motor,down to your right.Look under the van,up at the radiator,and you should see it.I think if you follow the wires from the fans,it will go right to it.If the module went out,chances are one of the fans are bad.to replace the fans order the fan assembly.If you try to replace one fan in the fan assembly,the blade will break.Then you will be stuck with a motor you bought,and need the whole assembly.If I can help,let me know.

Removal of Dash to Access Noisy Fan


BE PREPARED FOR ALOT OF WORK IF YOU ARE TO REMOVE THE DASH. FAN UNIT ITSELF IS NOT THAT DIFFICULT IT IS LOCATED PASSENGER LOWER SIDE BEHIND GLOVE BOX. CHECK TO SEE IF YOU CAN SEE YOUR EVAPORATOR THROUGH YOUR CABIN FILTER WHICH IS UNDER HOOD NEAR WINDSHIELD PASSENGER SIDE.

Check the fan assembly probably located behind your glovebox. The fan could be off-center.
