Where is the fan control sensor located


Ron need a little bit more info as what size motor ect. Usually fan control switch is located by thermostat housing other possibilitys are a/c system is low on freon an other issues found on those models is clogged radiator or thermostat stuck closed. I would replace thermostat first make sure to fill system and purge sir out of system by sweezeing upper radiator hse untill all air has been removed. Upon starting make sure to run jeep for 15 min with heat on to allow air in heater core to be removed as well. Also make sure cooling fans come on. Your model may have either one dual speed fan or two fan motors one for motor one for a/c possible blown fuse or burnt ot relay

Hondas are very tough cars and will run hot right up until a radiator hose ruptures. You need to make sure that there is not a problem.
When your Honda says it is hot, make sure the radiator fan is running. If not, it can be a bad fan or fan relay.
Next, turn on the heat full blast and make sure that you have allot of heat coming into the car. If not, even though your overflow tank has fluid in it, your radiator may be dry. This can happen if your radiator cap is bad. Check the fluid level in the radiator itself, but don't pull the cap until your car has cooled down at least an hour to reduce the risk of getting burned by steam.
If it stops reading HOT when you have full heat on it could be either the thermostat or a plugged radiator. Change the thermostat first since it is the cheapest fix.

The car keep overheating, there is water in the radiator and the resevior tank 2000 jeep grand cherokee i check the oil their is no water found in the oil the water from both unit stays full


Sounds like your thermostat is stuck closed. Shouldn't be more than a $20 part from autozone and is simple to replace. Follow your top radiator hose to the motor and it will connect to your thermostat housing. Disconnect the hose (antifreeze will run out) unbolt the housing, and replace the old thermostat. Refill radiator and bleed the system.

Jeep Grand Cherokee running hot. I've changed the


Check your radiator for external and internal obstructions (leaves, bugs etc on the a/c condenser or leaves between the condenser and radiator, rust or calcium deposits inside the radiator core all cause loss of heat transfer)
Also make sure that the system is full and that the electric fan and the clutch fan are operating properly. (electric fan should come on just above normal operating temp and clutch fan should not be "freewheeling" above temp either)
Note: If you need to have the radiator flushed, do it separately from the engine. especially the inline 6 and 4 engines rust up inside and if the system is flushed with the radiator connected, the debris will pack up inside it and actually can worsen the condition.

Still Over heating after many trys!!!


I would flush out the whole system. sounds like something is building back-pressure. If you do re-chande the thermostat, get a 'fail-safe' one that remains open if it fails. If this does not solve the problem, it may be a blown head gasket...this would also cause back pressure in the cooling system by allowing the the fireing pressure to escape through to the cooling system.

Temperature gage has fluctuates between 100 and 260, the water is full and fan seems to be working ok, and all belts seems to be ok.


You need to verify that the gage is accurate, if it is then the cause is the thermostat, but check the gage first, a repair shop can do this or you can feel the air coming off the radiator fan, if it is really hot changing to cool rapidly then the T-Stat is sticking open.

Radiator fan for 2001 Jeep Cherokee


Had this problem and one thing that even Chilton manuals only show in fine print sorta say is that Jeep cherokee has a relay sensor for the coolant fan usualy right behind the passenger or driver side headlight you may have to remove the bumper also its rather easy.Its a liitle black box thats screwd down on the panel just unscrew it unplug it replace mine ran me around $60.00.Before I learned about this after replacing the thermostate and just about to rip out the water pump my buddy told me about the sensor after replacing over a year ago no problems.
