2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Radiator Fan: An Expert Guide for Replacement and Maintenance

Today we’re going to install a radiator fan in a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee. This model is applicable for 99 through 2004. The radiator fan is connected to a shroud with bolts on the sides and bottom. The easiest way to access these bolts is from the top.

The specific radiator fan used is purchased from Amazon and offers great value for the price. It’s important to ensure that the fan is of high quality to prevent any future issues.

First, we remove the shroud and move it out of the way to access the bolts at the bottom.

Since the previous owner made modifications to the fan, we have to take additional steps such as cutting and splicing wires. For those attempting this installation, knowing that the green wire is positive and the white wire with a black line is negative is crucial.

After soldering the wires, it is important to use shrink wrap to seal and protect the connections. Once that is done, we can proceed to mount the shroud and secure it in place with bolts.

Additionally, we need to fasten the support bracket to hold the radiator in place. Then, we reattach the hose for the overflow and ensure everything is tightened and secured.

Finally, we install the t30 torx bolts that hold the lights and other components in place, completing the installation of the new radiator fan.

These steps are essential when replacing a fan and ensuring it’s done correctly. If you need further assistance, feel free to refer to the detailed description for the specific radiator fan used.
