make sure theres a full cooing system, because the fan switch that's screwed into the radiator won't come on if theres low fluid because of a leak... also, theres a fan relay, and could be a bad fan motor... diagnose the circuit with a manual, you can jump the fan switch to see if the fan comes on(if theres power to the switch with the key on) READ UP .... everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and a professional shop manual should be available at the library in the reference section for FREE...make copies of the right pages and fix your vehicle like a PRO! :) good luck Dave :) The main engine control computer turns the fan on and off using information it gets from the engine coolant temp sensor. The computer uses a relay to turn the fan on when needed.

I had the same problem with my jeep .
