On the 98 cherokee the fan isnt supposed to run after you turn the car off check the relay in the fuse box by the battery under the hood. Try replacing it with a different one in there. The relay may be stuck

SOURCE: 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0L 6cyl: Radiator fan

there is a solid state fan relay located under the passenger side headlight assembly. There are two ways to get at it. Either you can tear apart the entire front of the vehicle or you can remove the passenger side headlamp assembly and carefully drill a hole about in the middle of the opening and down towards the ground. Look in the hole you drilled you should be able to see the relay. Continue drilling/cutting until you have a hole just large enough to get the old relay out and a new one in. The hole will be covered by the headlamp and has become the preferred method of replacing since they are so common and removing the entire front assembly is so time consuming.

You will have to take out the fuse to get it to stop. You could possibly wire it up with a toggle switch to turn it on and off.

98 jeep Cherokee keeps over heating


Several possibilities, including blockage in coolant tubes of radiator, damaged or slipping impeller on water pump, blockage of air flow through radiator, inoperative radiator fan(s), damaged head or head gasket...

Does the radiator fan come on? If not, problem could be bad temp sensor or fan motor or wiring.

I have a 98 jeep grand Cherokee limited ONLY when i run the a/c it overheats replaced the water pump,thermostat,upper and lower hose,there no leaks anywhere only has a mechanical fan how do I fix


By any chance, does the electric cooling fan shut off when you turn the AC on? If so, either the wiring to the fan assembly has been compromised, or the cooling fan relay is bad.

My 04 jeep grand cherokee is smoking from the radiator. the radiator fan doesn't appear to be running. i've had to put more and more coolant in the resivior because it keeps going right through it...


well,probably needs radiator replaced,burning off fluid smoking problem?if not going out exhaust or in oil,have radiator checked-replaced,if fan not running check relay and fuses,might need fan replaced,if you overheat engine to bad you will blow head gaskets and this is costly.check your oil,see if gray and milky,if so blown head gasket and water-antifreeze in oil,if going out exhaust will be blown head gasket inbetween the cylinders,fix radiator and fan first,but check out to see where all fluid is going.

Coolant sensor keeps saying bad would that cause it to over heat jeep laredo 97 grand cherokee


Yes, cause that sensor operates the electric cooling fans by the radiator, if those fans or fan don't come on, the radiator can't cool down as quick and causes the engine to run hotter.

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.

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee- fan that sits closest to radiator


Have you tested the fan sending unit on the engine? disconnect that and if the fan runs (Key on) that is most likely the problem.
