I sure hope you got the 2nd one free, the after market relays are known to go bad sometimes that was the only reason I went and paid the shot for the jeep part, by any chance did you try and hot wire the fan to see if it will come on with constant power? You unplug the fan wiring beside the fan shroud and run a ground to the frame and a hot lead from the battery and see if the fan will come on and stay on. I have looked in the repair manual and it talks about a fuse but the only one I found was a breaker type in the power box under the hood, I'm not sure right now but I think it's right next to the abs fuse. I hope that helps you. Bill

In addition to the last message I posted I noticed today that when the ac is on the Jeep gets hot as well. It seems that any extra strain on the engine causes it to get hot. Any ideas?

Thanks to all who have responded to my post. I have hot wired the fan to the battery and it does not come on. So I will be taking it in to my mechanic tomorrow to diagnose my problem. Thanks again.

i had the same problem, its the engine control computer. The ground feed to the fan control module is lost from the ecm when the a/c system is run for the about 30 minutes.
$1000 plus diagnostic $180

1993 Jeep cherokee overheating. Changed water pump, and fan clutch, did pressure check on ststem, put on a new head gasket. Still overheated, took out the thermostat, put it back together without one, changed the antifreeze solution to the water wetter and water. Still overheats. Will run at about 230 at 45 MPH, but turn on the air or go faster, temp climbs. Electric fan is running. HELP!!!!!!

I have 1995 Jeep Cherokee, 4.0 L. I drove about 2 miles, the temperature gauge was going to red section. I must stopped to drive the jeep. I changed the thermostat, but the overheat problem still was not solved.
Please give me an advice.

I also have a 1993 cherokee with a heating problem I have replaced the engine, water pump, theromstat, viscous fan, radiator and all of the hoses I also replaced the fan temp switch located in the theromostat housing and the sender for the gauge it is running around 210 all the time I installed a 160 deg. thermostat no change I blew out the raditator and flushed the cooling system I thought it might have an air lock so I pulled an 8lb vacum on it for about 5 minutes with no change any ideas
