I'd check the cooling fan sensor, usually located on the plug in portion where the connector clips into the fan connector. There is usually a thermistor? componet that tells the engine computer that the engine is too hot,thus the fan will continiously run, this can short out or wear out over time. Call an auto parts store to see if they have a replacement. If a replacement ends up costing to much, you can wire the hot and negative wires from the fan to a toggleswitch inside the Jeep, and manually turn the fan off and on. If this is the route you choose to go, make sure you get a toggle switch that will safely handle the amperage, and use the correct gauge wiring. You may even be able to find the new toggleswitch that lights up AND beeps when the ignition is shut off to remind you to shut the switch off. Hope this helps

this could be caused by a fautly cooling temp sensor, sending a false reading to the cooling fan relay, causing the fan to continue running, also, could be caused by a faulty relay, I would rerplace both.
