OK, so I got this '99 WJ Limited a short time ago. Previous owner thought it was a blown head gasket due to constant overheating. (4.0 engine...thank God!)
After looking at it, bought it immediately. (well cared for, fantastic condition, other than the alleged gasket issue, $400.....you'd buy it too!
So I found that the head gasket is fine. Also found;
1) Fan not turning on.
-checked to battery....fan works
2) Hairline crack in radiator due to fender bender
-new radiator and replaced busted up header panel while front was apart and repaired the fender bender damage.
Figured the relay, would have done it but the fan will still not come on.
Temp sensor works fine b/c I'm getting good reading at temp gauge.
So with good fan, new relay, and apparently properly working temp sensor, can anyone help me find what else could be wrong?
I'm assuming that either the signal is not making it to the ECU or not making it from the ECU to the relay. I seriously doubt the ECU is bad. There is NOTHING in this Jeep that does not work as it should EXCEPT the fan!
I'd hate to think that the brand new relay is bad right out of the box, but I suppose that it's a possibility.
Driving it to/from work because I have only one or two stops and a straight shot. No issues as long as it's moving and getting airflow. Temp stays stable at about 205.
THANKS for any input/opinions you may have!
