Re: Wj power steering fluid wj overland 2004

The ECT sits between the Alternator and AC compressor. Not easy to get the connector of when the engine is hot (at least to be able to squeeze the connector lock), without burning your hand.
After you remove the connector, the PCM looses the ECT info and for that reason will send a high speed signal to the fan solenoid.
If the fan will not speed up, the solenoid is probably bad, but you normally get a fault code for that. Jeep sold the solenoid separately on a blue monday, but not anymore. I did some searching on this and some Fords use the same hydraulic fan setup with the same solenoid. Only the connector on the solenoid is different. Also on jeeps the solenoid connector is different between the years, there are two pin connector solenoids and three pin connector solenoids, just to make live easy.
If you would need to change the solenoid, i will look for the P/N, which i kept somewhere in my home computer (on the job now).
Also after disconnecting the solenoid connector, the check engine light will come on and the PCM memory will have to be reset.

Re: Wj power steering fluid wj overland 2004

Found this on another forum:

:Hello everyone, I too have been having issues with my GC overheating due to the hydraulic fan solenoid. After dealing with this problem for months now I decided to take a shot in the dark and purchase a lincoln LS fan solenoid off of ebay for about 150$. of course the connectors don't match up but after comparing it to the jeep one it is identical.

So I just installed it yesterday Did my own little redneck harness by cutting off the end of my wireing harness and putting a couple of small insulated female stak-on's. I then I pushed them onto the solenoid and filled surrounding areas with some high-temp silicon. I then loosened the temperature sensor from between the alternator and the a/c compressor (after doing this the computer will send a signal to the fan to run at full speed just seconds after you start it, like a protection mode). I started my car and BAM the fan started hauling *** , I reconnected the temp sensor and the fan slowed down to normal operating speed. let it idle for 2hours with a/c on full blast in 103 degree heat ....no problems ... I hope this info helps other people.

The part Ford part number for the actuator is xw4z-3783-ca I picked mine up on ebay for like 150
here is the link to the one I purchased http://www.ebay.com/itm/160808222100...84.m1497.l2649
For the peeps down under

Hello. Here there is a part no. 5143201AA It's a Hydraulic solenoid fan switch $142.00. This controls the speed of the fan according to the temperature. Most distributors don't know this. It's available at RT Partsco ask for Roy Reyes (owner) 813 287-2200. You don't have to get the entire housing part no. 5102210AA which it's the entire system which is like $1100.00. Or you can go to rtpartsco.com. God bless, RC.
