Question

Well I figured out (due to the help of fellow forum members) the different possible problems this code (p0868) may entail but this happened to me today when pulling into the garage. I had the windows down and no AC and all of a sudden I hear this wooooooooooooooo sound like the fans kicked in on high. WTF is that about and is my shit about to blow up? lol

Re: Question

That is exactly what happened..The electric fans kicked into high speed.. They change speed at different temperatures..Your truck must have been running alittle hot..

Re: Question

yes they are hydaulically cooled. but next time you have nothing to do, go out and turn the a/c on in your jeep then go and stand by the front of the jeep while it idles. the fan(s) will kick in beacuse the jeep is not moving there for there is no air going thru the condenser coil. so the fans start up to move air thru the coil.


anyways joe, try that if it makes the same noise i think your ok. if not...i would have to hear the noise to diagnose it more.

Re: Question

If you turn AC on, that electric fan is only cooling the AC's radiator....its not cooling the engine's radiator...
