Replace Cooling fan module

Can anyone provide a link or post on how to replace the cooling fan module in a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee V6? My fan continued to run even after car was off. I replaced the relay and everything seemed good for a week or so. Now again my fan will not shut off. I assume the relay is bad again.

After some research, sounds like I should try replaceing my cooling fan module. I read that my current fan may be drawing too many amps causing the relays to go bad?? Any thoughts??
I want to attemt to replace myself if you think this is my next best option??

Thanks, if possible please provide a link or post on how to replace fan.

The fan is running because something is tell it to. The relay maybe stuck but it's not likely. If you think it's the relay try swapping it with another one in the power distribution center. From what I have seen in the past it is the TIPM.

The WJ has a special fan relay located under the passenger headlight, it is not one of the relays in the power distrib center.

fan relay is super easy to replace. search and just follow the directions about drilling the hole under the headlight.

the relays from caravans and grand caravans work. i just went to junk yard and got them super cheap.
