The relay sits under the hood in a black box.If your not handy with a volt meter or test light you wont be able to tell if the relay is bad.You could just replace the relay as its cheap and pops in like a fuse or you can unplug the fan and run a wire to the positive side of the battery,if the fan comes on the relay is most likley the issue if the fan doesent come on then the fan may be faulty.If you turn the air conditioning on the fan should come on,if it does i would check the water pump.

Drive the vehicle around and warm it up,now go back home and park it with it running,set the e brake,pop the hood.Watch the fans with the engine running,they should come on and blow for awhile.If they do not come on,turn on your air conditioning on and go back and check the fans again.If they come on with the a/c,then the fans are capable,just not being commanded to come on.If the fans do not come on at all,then you need to check/replace fuses and relays.

If the fan is not cycling when the engine gets hot, you'll have to test the fan motor and the temperature sensor. If the fan is running and it's still hot, the thermostat may be the cause.

I have a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo with the


If you put the thermostat in correctly (spring towards the engine) that should be OK. Likely if the water pump wasn't leaking or had a bad bearing, you wasted your $ on that.
If you re-filled it and did not have the heater on high heat, you may have some trapped air in there. But, still overheating says another thing. If you have a blown head gasket, it can pump compression into the cooling system and drive the coolant from the core. It will also overheat. You can have that tested at most any decent shop that will do a hydrocarbon test to find that.I think someone makes a chemical test kit for that but not sure if it's very expensive or not. White smoke from tailpipe will also be an indicator as will be any coolant in the engine oil or coolant on one or more spark plugs. If it turns out that it has a head gasket problem don't stop looking for problems as often a faulty fan or obstructed radiator can cause the initial overheat that caused the gasket to fail.

How do you replace the fan motor in '03 jeep grand cherokee laredo? - the damn thing overheats when idle - changed the relay & coolant sensor... still overheating


When was the last coolant change?
Under 2 years or 24,000 miles.

Change the thermostat and gasket first.

Use a 195F with pop-let protection.

A stuck/failing thermostat is a common cause of over-heating problem.

======
To change the fan,the entire protector plastic has to come out.

Most likely you will break the push in locking pins.

Get few replacement push in locking pins before you start the job.

2000 JEEP GRAND CHAROKEE LAREDO OVERHEATS WITH NEW RADIATOR AND FAN..HOW DO I FIX THAT?


You may either have a bad thermostat or a bad fan relay. If the fan is not turning on at all then the relay is bad. If there is not any heat coming through the heater then your heater core is plugged. That would also cause an overheating problem as well. To rule out a bad relay check to see if you are getting 12 volts at the fan connection. If not change relay.

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo radiator fan doesn't turn on.


Check power to the relay. it can close, but if there is no power to it, it can't send anything to the fan.
signal goes from sensor, to the computer, to the relay. when it closes it transfers power from the hot side to the fan.

1989 Jeep cherokee Laredo over heating and the fan wont kick on, plenty of water in the radiator? How do I check to see if it is the thermostat sticking closed?


when it's overheating check to see if the lower radiator hose is hot. if not therm is bad. If OK, check temp sensor on thermostat housing. signal from there goes to the computer, then to fan relay to turn on fan.

the only problem that vehicle has is with cooling fans is relay/module or electrical harness to module that burns up located behind and under right front headlamp assy must remove headlamp to access relay/module that is what powers up fan motor module assy.
