Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee
If its a V-8 like mine the electric fan is not the main fan to cool the engine. The viscous fan is. Its the one that runs of the engine belt. Just replaced mine. The viscous part goes bad and the fan will not run at the proper speed, it may spin but not at the full speed it should. It should make a roaring noise when hot and when you first start it up in from being cold. If not it may be bad. Turning AC of may help tell its fixed.

To replace the fan relay, it is located behind the bumper of the right headlight (if you are standing looking at your Jeep from the front, it's the one on the left.) It's screwed into the frame and connected by a cable. You can take off the bumper or do it the easy way like I did. Remove the right headlight by loosing the bolt on top (it's a long bolt.) Pop out the headlight assembly then you can take a hole-saw and cut out some 1" to 2" openings. You'll see the relay underneath. It's about a 50.00 part and takes less than 20 minutes to swap out using the method above.
