Sitting at a stop light when smelled an burning electrical smell. Jeep start to overheat and radiator fan was blown. Replaced fuse and radiator fan still not working. Ran a jump sure to test fan and it is working. I need to know where the radiator relay is located on 2008 jeep grand cherokee 3.7 liter.

Replaced hi relay and fan kicked on. After 30 seconds, got hot smell again and fuse blew.

ok. please standby and let me look into this

ok, check the ground, then check continuity from the fan control module to the relays. even if continuity is good check for a high resistance short to ground on each wire.

just checking in to see how its going
