Assuming RAD stands for radiator . . . Chances are your thermostat is stuck closed. Replace it.

Could also Abe a malfunctioning blower module. Now if its blowing COLD air, well , replacing the blower moter wont make it blow warm. There could be numerous causes of that problem

How do you repair a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee no air blowing heat or cold?

Check blower motor fuse Blower motor resistor pack? Fan switch? Selector switch? ---- Is the Blower Motor Working? I'm not sure if the question is that the blower motor is working and "no air is blowing thru the vents'! If the blower is working and no air is blowing thru the vents then you could have a broken Recirculation Door. That is another common heating problem with the 99/04 Jeep GC. The recirc door brakes and falls down blocking the blower which will reduce or block the air flow completely. Normally the dashboard would have to be removed to replace the broken recirculation door. See the Link below for a NO Dash Removalrecirculation door fix. ----

What is possible problem with AC not blowing at all Yesterday it was blowing cold and working on high only which you knew the blower motor and resistor were needing replaced Today nothing at all?

If the AC was working well yesterday and blowing cold, however, today their is no air being released, the AC could have been too high for two long. The AC tends to freeze up and has to be turned off for a while until thawed. If the blower motor and resistor needed replacement they may have officially blown and need replacement in order to work at all.

Why does my oil pressure gauge read low?

You will need to remove your oil pressure sending unit and install a mechanical gauge to get a true reading. You need to start out cold and write down the pressure reading and also once it warms up to operating temperature. If the pressure gauge is not the same as the mechanical one you have a bad pressure switch.

If by quit working you mean quit blowing, the things to troubleshoot are the blower motor, the blower motor resistor switch, or the blower motor speed selector switch. If by quit working you mean it only blows cold or warm air, the thermostat is probably stuck in the open position.
