The auxiliary fan (cooling fan) for the AC in my 1999 Jeep Cherokee won't not turn off even when the vehicle is turned off. Number one reason is that the relay is starting to go bad.

Easy test - if the fan is still on with the AC and vehicle turned off, tap/whack the relay (labeled cooling fan) and it should turn off. If so, you have a relay that is going bad.

Bought a new relay, put it in, and it's back to normal. Toss the old relay - it will only get worse.

This was indicated as the Starter Relay for a 2000 Mitsubishi Galant. It is not the correct part. To AAP's credit, both AllData and the Relay Cover reference the spot that this would plug in to as requiring, so it's not a "mistake" on AAP's part. Just confirm that your vehicle uses this exact part before ordering.

      The contacts appear to be smaller than the OEM part.
      However, it does work. It would be nice if there was a sheet that identified the contacts.

        Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Relay:

        There are five relays in the fuse box next to my battery. All five relays are alike. It didn't seem to be listed in the AAP computer as compatible with my '93 Jeep Wrangler Sahara so the clerk came outside the store with me, pulled the dead relay (horn)and cross-referenced it. They had two in stock and I bought both so I'd have a spare. The clerk then came outside again and plugged the new relay in place, had me blow the horn, then closed and secured the hood. Thank you, Scotty. The relay works just fine.

          Works fine with 1996 Ford Explorer and some of our other vehicles. It works with multiple relay replacements. You can also cross-reference relay manufacturers to see which relays can be replaced. Recommend keeping the old ones that work as replacements for an emergency. These also work for my snow plow application on my truck.

              • Q:

                I have a 1997 Plymouth Grande Voyager that the engine shuts off after about 20 minutes of driving. After I let it set for approximately 30 minutes it will start up with no problem and run for 5-10 minutes and shut off again. I was told this was the coil pack and it shuts off when system gets hot. Is this information correct.

                  A:

                  Hi Julia! The usual symptoms of an ignition coil pack are a misfire or rough idle, check engine light comes on, backfiring or flames from the carburetor / intake, evident lack of power, lack of RPM's during acceleration and strong smell of gasoline from the exhaust. However, without the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it, nor provide you with a 100% answer. I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.

                  Hi Nino, glad to help you! A faulty switch, wiring harness, wiper motor, or a relay could possibly the problem. But, without the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it, nor provide you with a 100% answer. I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.

              • Q:

                I have a 02 Ford Escape and my abs and brake lights are on in the instrument panel. When I had a auto mechanic teacher run the machine on it that gives you certain codes as to your problem, it came up with the abs control module as the problem. I look the part up and I'm shown a picture of a Relay, so my question to you; is this the part I'll need to resolve the problem?
