#1410 of 2589 Jeep Cherokee Cooling Fan Doesn't Run
May 09, 2005 (7:35 pm)
I have a 1993 Jeep Cherokee 6 Cyl that is not getting any power to the electrical cooling fan. I hooked up a volt meter to the connector and I get no voltage when the car is running A/C on or off, nor when the car gets hot.
I've checked all the fuses and they are good. I've swapped the relays so they don't appear to be the problem.
Would you have any suggestions on what to do next?
Thanks in advance,

Sounds like your wiper arms are slipping on the shafts. You will probably have to replace the arms. They should run between $20 & $25 apiece. If it's the shafts themselves, that's another can of worms in and of itself.

Could some one tell me how to remove the left rear power door lock actualor from my 96 cherokee classic,. I have the door panel off and can see the actualor. Its loose.. it appears that its riveted in but im not sure. If it is will a standard pop rivet fix it up. Do I need to drill it out?

I have a '99 Cherokee Classic and am interested in getting an after-market sunroof put in. I have not really done any checking, but was worried that the dome light inside would be in the way. Was this a problem? Also, your "moonroof" opens completely, or just pops up? Thanks for any help you can offer!

Dome light not compromised in any way--they move it back a couple inches to accommodate the sunroof. The kit must come w/ a matched headliner, because headliner they installed has an indentation that accommodates the repositioned dome light, as well as the control switch (control switch forward of sunroof, dome light aft). The new headliner perfectly matches the color and texture of the original.
The sunroof has electronic control: push one button and it automatically retracts fully, push another and it pops up, push another and it closes (also closes on its own five secs. after engine turned off unless you overide). It also has a sunshade.
Again, the entire install looks and performs like it came from factory, I'm very pleased w/ results. Just need to make sure a competent shop installs. I called three area Jeep dealerships and two of them recommended the same place; they obviously knew what they were taliking about.
Only downside is you lose some headroom, but mostly above back seat area. I'm 6'3 and don't have a problem in front, haven't ever sat in back to be honest!
#1416 of 2589 1994 Jeep cherokee
May 19, 2005 (12:30 pm)
I have a sweet 1994 Jeep Cherokee with over 200,000 miles on it. I recently had a overheating problem that I thought was linked to the water pump. I changed that, took 7 hours, but it was my first time. Still overheated. I replaced the thermostat (1.5 hours, I am getting better), and it still overheated. Replaced the radiator and the mechanical fan pump (piece of cake), and now it will overheat only if going slowly up a steep hill for several miles, but it still overheats. Regular highway and downtown travel are fine. I feel like I have replaced the entire cooling system, but I must be missing something. I love this Jeep, and will do whatever I have to to keep it. What next? Also, what other types of maintenance procedures will I need to learn to keep my baby happy.

You can definately do the job. I did it with no automotive experience at all on a 1994. I can tell you that with the older vehicle you may want to change the thermostat (always change it if you have overheated, $6) , and the clutch on the mechnical fan as well (when the waterpump is failing the fan works harder, $35). Do them all at the same time, and you will save a lot extra effort. If you have deterioration in the radiator, I did on my '94, you may want to put a new one of them in as well ($145). All of this work is fairly easy, and the way I see it, cheaper than a car payment.

I hace an 89 Cherokee Laredo, new headgasket, machined the head, new valves, new thermostat, new water pump, new radiator, new overflow bottle and cap, still overheating. Time to bring it in? I would hate to have overlooked something simple, a new temp. sensor or something.
I don't let it get to hot, as I would hate to have to take the darn head off or worse yet, a cracked block.
I do not have coolant in my oil or oil(petro) in my coolant. It is drivin' me crazy.
