2600 miles and cooling fan is already out

My jeep just turned 2600 miles and the cooling fan is not turning on. I thought it might be the TSB that the fan is not active but jeep says the fan is bad. They had to order the fan. It is amazing the fan only lasted 2600 miles. Anyone else have this problem?

Only 2600 miles on a 1990 YJ?
Probably just old age and/or lack of use.

Its probably just a defective item. That happens every so often. I would not worry too much about it.

Got the module replaced today. The tec said he hadn't seen this problem prior to mine. Fan doesn't kick in until around 220? I might have to pick up a programmer to lower that number. Seems high.

Normal operating temp is 210. So its not that high.

Of all the failures I've heard of on JK's, this is not one of them. Just unlucky.
