Re: 2000 jeep i6 rad fan not turning on.

I with Frank on this one, sounds like a fan issue.

Re: 2000 jeep i6 rad fan not turning on.

Took out the fan the other night cleaned it up took it apart with a can of air and wd40 tested it on a 12v batter and worked just fine after cleaning it up. The connector clips i also took a look at and they looked REALLY oxidized to the point where i couldn't clean them without messing something up. As a temp fix i cut both fan and power wire and tied them together without the connectors. Happy to say this worked fantastically and everything works perfect!

Re: 2000 jeep i6 rad fan not turning on.

HAD THIS SAME EXACT PROBLEM...

Couple of things:
1.) replace the fan motor & the relay at the same time. IME, when the relay is fried so is the motor. The problem probably started at the motor & took out the relay. At least that is what happened in my case.

2.) Use only a Mopar relay. It will cost a little more, but worth the aggravation. I used 3 different relays that worked for about 2 months each & then would go out. since the issue was with the crappy relay, it didn't affect the fan motor.

3.) Handle this sooner than later. If left un-repaired for too long, this will start causing error codes to generate for different areas of the jeep. i.e. tranny codes, evaporation leak codes, etc. I found that as soon as I fixed this issue, all other codes ceased popping up...

4.) DO NOT use the shortcut method to replacing the relay. It did not take ll that much time to remove the front grill & headlight to access the relay location.


hope this helps...

Whats wrong with the shortcut method? Consider your on a trip 100 miles from home/ out 30mi from the nearest paved road on forest service roads hunting/ out wheeling on OHV trails... you name it, and you start overheating, what is going to be easier, to remove the facia and support or to remove the 1 7mm headlamp bolt and pop the housing out and replace the relay?

Its a common enough of a failure and still in a VERY safe spot with the added opening.
