Question about Jeep Cherokee
After checking the fuse, the first thing to look at is the thermostatic switch. This is located in the radiator 'bottom' tank and has two wires attached to it. Disconnect these terminals, and with the ignition on, touch the terminals together. If the fan starts, the thermostatic fan is faulty and needs replacement. If this does not work, take leads straight from the battery to the fan and see if it works. Polarity does not mater for a short while, you only want to see if it turns.
If it does turn now, reconnect everything and then check the relay and this can only really be done by fitting a known working relay. If this still does not fix the fault, you will have to start tracing and inspecting wires and connectors.
