Ordered a fan relay today, but is that all?

'99 WJ 4.0.
Last week the fan continued running even after I turned off the WJ which wasn't normal, so I began pulling the fuse in the PCM. Now it doesn't run at all and I'm hoping that replacing the fan relay will be the fix here. Ideas?

Here's NAPA part #609196. brakes3.jpg

In a successful effort to relieve my sticking rear calipers, I replaced this today as well as 112" of copper/nickel brake line from the ABS module back to the center hose. It took a 40" piece and an adapter going into the ABS block. I made most of the bends by hand. I then joined a 72" piece down below the driver side CA bolt. I ran the line in it's original path and it fit perfectly. I bled the system with my wife's help, then took it for a ride. No more sticking calipers! The hose from Napa was around $27.00 and comes with a limited lifetime warranty. I got $25.00 off of the coppernickel brake lines and fittings from AA, so saved a bunch there, too. I hope this helps someone in the future.

…. and please for the love of God spray some Rust-Oleum on that drive shaft and yoke. What's that you say … it will throw it off balance. Just spray it on evenly then.

Step 1: Put the axles tubes on jackstands with all the tires off the ground.
Step 2: Start the engine.
Step 3: Put it into drive.
Step 4: Climb under and unleash the Rust-Oleum on the spinning driveshaft.
Step 5: Enjoy a beer.
Step 6: Gander at the nice, even coating and be proud that you have won the battle against rust. But remember, the battle is won but the war is not over...

Rebuilt the tranny in my 2004 overland awhile back and I broke the shifter cable at the trans bracket. Tried to use safety wire to hold it together it worked but not the best. Then got to the point of would not go into park. So today it got a new shift cable special thanks go out to Kolak order on Tuesday received on Thursday fast shipping an a good price. Thanks Kolak

Did the dreaded passenger side valve cover gasket last week. That cover is really a tight fit! I gently moved the a/c compressor aside to give me a little more room to work, but when I went for a drive afterwards, the a/c wasn't getting cold. The line from the accumulator/drier had a tiny leak where the rubber line is crimped to it. Ugh! I decided to replace both flex lines while it was apart, and also bought the line that has the orifice tube inside of it. (What freakin' genius at Jeep came up the idea of a non-removable orifice tube!?!?!?) The parts dribbled in over 3 days. Now it's cool, so don't have much need for a/c, but that should change by the weekend.

The good news is that the inside of the engine is clean as a whistle!

I put my foot on the brake pedal of our '04 RM WJ last night around 9:40 PM to put it in Reverse and the pedal sank all the way to the floor. We drove it home anyway and I knew I was in trouble.

Looked at it this morning, and, sure enough, the rear steel brake line running from the ABS block back to the center hose was leaking badly and rusted through right before the center hose fitting.

I JUST did this job on my 2002 WJ several days ago as mentioned in the above post. I went with the identical Copper/nickel lines and fittings and everything's back to normal again. Here's the thing, when you own two WJs, what one gets, soon the other WILL have...This time I didn't have to replace the hose, just the steel line.

Dealing with a lot of little issues lately. Seems I no sooner get one thing fixed and 2 more pop up.



Had failing LED dash back light bulbs, for a while. Seems I get about a year out of them, then have to change them. They came in Weds, and I changed them on a break at work Thursday. I've had an ABS light for longer than I can remember. Once I changed the bulbs, that disappeared, but the Brake light came on. Fluids topped off and parking brake is released. End of day yesterday, I go to open the back drivers door and the outside handle doesn't work. The little plastic retainer clip that connects the rod to the handle broke. Got that fixed today.

Sounds like my altenator is needing replacing soon. Started making a whining sound last night. Looks like an easy job.

Lots of fun this weekend in the boondocks, The last mapped corner of the US. Found this spot on the cutoff road of Wolverine Loop, Escalante National Monument.

I hear there are Durango alternators with higher output and cheaper. Might want to get one of those.

Been dealing with poor heat for years. Flushed heater core numerous times all with good flow but still little to no heat. It was time to put in a new one. Should have done this year’s ago.

Which HVAC control system do you have? Could it be a blend door issue? Just found out my driver's side is no longer getting heat but passenger's side does. Already knew my recirculation door was broken.

Non electronic single zone. Blend doors work fine. No vacuum leaks. Heat is fantastic now and while all of it was out I put new foam to seal the joining points.

My dash brake light keeps coming on as well, but am thinking the ABS light also coming on is associated? No codes. Guess I'll start with pulling the ABS sensors and testing those.
