06 vue cooling fan wont shut off tried new relay swich and the 40a fuse is obviously good. what could it be, temp sending unit?


The power for the fan comes from 2 relays in the
junction block on the left fender. One is a high fan relay 40amp the other is the low fan relay 20amp.
If either one is stuck, it will power the fan. Also if the
engine coolant temp(ect)sensor is bad, it can send a
false signal to the engine control module(ecm) and powering the fan. With the engine cool, if the fans still
running. Unplug the ect sensor(on thermo. housing)
if the fan stops replace the sensor. If not pull the relays one at a time. And see which one stops the fan. If none of this works it may be an ecm problem.
Hope this helps.

Where is the fuse or relay for the cooling fan in


You have to refer to your owners manual or an after market service manual for fuse locations but that is not the issue. There is a sending unit screwed into the block with a temp sensor that closes the circuit on the ground side when the cooling system reaches a specified temperature. There is a fuse between the hot side and the fan for over current protection (see manual). A bad sending unit is most likely the culprit. Measure the resistance or continuity when the engine is hot from the sending unit body which is grounded to the block, and the output terminal or black wire running to the fan motor. It should be closed or read less than 0.5 Ohms. If it is open or very high resistance replace it. Good luck to you. I hope thishelps

Radiator fan not working replaced relay,temp switch and fuse fan works if hot wired it's on a 2001 jeep grand cherokee


Check the wiring from the relay to the fan motor, and check the wiring from the fuse block. Basically check all wires that supply power to the fan motor, use a volt meter. Fan Relay (behind headlight, under battery) on the 2001 GC 4.0L are a piece of ****, I change mine almost yearly. The problem is their location, a high heat area prone to the elements. I understand that 2002 and newer, the location was changed and the problem solved. Relay might close the circuit when cold or at reasonable temps, but might open a circuit when it heats up, causing the problem.

Cooling fan wont work


The water temp sensor is located near the thermostat housing. This sensor is what tells the ECM to turn the fan on/off. The water temp sending unit is located near the same area. You know you have the correct sensor is because the water temp sensor has a 2 prong plug. The water temp sending unit only has 1 prong.
