#4354 of 5143 2001 Grand Cherokee, locking wheels.....
Dec 26, 2008 (8:35 am)
Hello, I am trying to install a different bolt pattern rims to my Jeep, so I get a set of wheel adapters on the internet, but the wheels get lock with the adapters on it and is impossible to move any wheel by hand and not even trying driving the car, the size on the adapters are fine, everything fit perfectly and I don't see any reason to what is happening. Is any wheel sensor locking the brake system?
Has anybody seen this before or any possible suggestion?

Ouch. I'd say, start by making sure you have good batt connections. Then, it's probably the starter and/or solenoid for the starter that's sapping your batt. If you've tried to jump the Jeep unsuccessfully, I'd put money on the starter assembly. If it jumped OK, I'd sat batt cables are a guilty party.
#4356 of 5143 Coolong fan woes- overheating
Dec 27, 2008 (3:45 pm)
I am the proud owned of a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4x4 4.0L.
Two days ago after cutting my jeep off I noticed the fan running.. I know it is normal but it remained on after 1 hour.. So i unplugged it by the radiator.. 45 mins. or so later i plugged it back in to see if it would still be on and it stayed off. On the drive home I noticed that I was starting to overheat at idle.. Checked when temp was high and fan was not on..
Changed Coolant temp sensor
cant locate fan relay..
a/c works and fan doesn't come on
fan is working when I jumped it to battery.
Can anyone help diagnose this problem.. Please.
I have a 260 amp alt- 3 batts, and 6000 watts on 2-18's This is a daily driver and Competition vehicle. I do not want to overheat and ruin the motor. (not a fan of the 4.0L but it is what I have)
I do all the wiring on my Car Audio and have decent knowledge of 12volt systems.. I was a mechanic years ago but changed jobs due to eye injury.. So I have some knowledge of automotive trouble shooting and diagnostics. II need advise from someone who knows this specific vehicle.. Any help would be appreciated.
If anyone has questions about car audio/jeeps i would be glad to assist as well.

Sounds like the fan controller module is dead. One of our Jeeps has done the same thing. As a fast fix, we rigged the fan to be on when the lights are on. This fix may also work for you as well, but it is a temporary fix.

There are usually at least 2 temp sensors. One talks to the fan relay to run the fan when needed. The other one talks to the computer. Is it possible you changed the computer input sensor? They usually look similar. I have a V8 so am not able to describe the location of the probable guilty part on your 4.0 and I'm 5000 miles from my service manual.
With electical power on, grounding the electrical connection to the correct sensor should fire up the fan. If I'm wrong about this one, someboby please chime in.

#4361 of 5143 1999 JGC just going to heck
Dec 28, 2008 (4:00 pm)
I have a friend who JUST paid off his 99 JGC and EVERYTHING is going on it. It seems like a money pit and I told him that. I'd like to hear from others.
He has a rear wheel seal and bearing that is going out. It is leaking all over the place. He also had the Pitman gear box that goes through a pint of fluid every 20 miles. Warped brake rotors, and a slew of other little problems that are going to add up.
He can not afford another vehicle, nor can he afford the repairs. I think he should sell it and get what he can for it and get something else. What do you all think.

Hey i had the same problem with my jeep. I have an 2000 Grand Cherokee I-6
I was having the same problems the fan would stay on( but i just re-started it and it turned off) and the lights would dim, it would over heat in slow driving or when stopped, and it would hesitate turning on. turns out my fan motor had died and the car was trying to cool its self and the battery and alternator were fine i just over worked them. I had to replace the entire fan assembly and a new battery it cost a pretty penny and took sometime but it worked. There was a recall on my fan assembly that was checked out by a dealership in Florida and they said everything was fine back then and sense they checked it out my local Jeep dealership said there was nothing they could do. but good luck! Jeeps are awesome the mechanic said that he was surprised that it went so long (5 weeks )
