P1491 code, You have a problem with the cooling fan relay. Do not drive this vehicle very far. If it has a Temp Guage keep an eye on it and don't overheat it. Possible engine damage could result. The relay is the most common cause for that code with a no fan operation condition.
The location of this relay. It's in the right front of the engine compartment. Kind of behind and below the RF headlamp and in front of and below the fuse box.
Easy to replace, just unplug it and plug the new one in.

My 2002 jeep grand cherokee laredo wull not start shutdown 2 days ago checked all fuses but the ecu fuses don't know how to find them

According with your other quesions, the DTC P1491 code is actually radiator fan control relay circuit.
Soft reset if the battery disconnect would have erased the code; the first thing I would replace for that code (fan relay).
Additionally, its possible thta your THEFT system is activated, check owners manual to disarm. Check details here:
- Grand Cherokee fuses

- Diagnostic Trouble Codes

Hope this helps.

Transmission code P1491

Please check the code or you may have it re-scanned. Some shops would let you borrow their scanner. The problem is with the cooling fan. It may be a bad relay or the circuit itself or the wiring may be bad.

Whats causes P1491 code on my 2001 jeep grand cherokee laredo v6?

This may sound strange, but I have seen this code many times. Check all fusesin the power distribution center under the hood. I bet you find a blown fuse...ALSO check your relay. It is probably bad too."Radiator Fan Ctrl Relay Circ" Maybe the computer thinks the fan's misbehaving, so it backs off the power? Hope this helps, James Booth

Would not shift in to drive or reverse then lights interior flash

According to the fault code, there is no signal from the vehicle speed sensor to the OBD computer. A P1491 code is the radiator fan control circuit. I sounds like you may have an electrical problem that is causing a bunch of false readings. Have the computer reset and try again. You can get all of the fault codes at Don't forget top rate this solution!!!
