Re: radiator been replaced
There could be several reasons,first check the relay it's located in the junction box under the hood. your owners manual will show you the location of it.. check the wires and connectors to the fan as well. make sure the fan free spins. if everything is ok in that regard your temp sensor on the fan unit is bad and needs replacing. please rate this

Check to make sure both of the electric fans are working. Your car has two cooling fans. As the engine begins to warm up one of the fans will come on. When the engine gets near or above normal temp the other fan will cut on. When you are driving, there is enough air moving through the radiator to keep the engine within normal range. When the car is stopped the fans are needed to draw enough air through the radiator. When the engine is hot and running, open the hood and look to see if both fans are turning. Keep your hands away. Just look don't touch. If neither fan is spinning, or if only one is spinning, you probably need to install a new fan assembly. But check for blown fuses or relays. Have someone check to make sure power is being sent to the fans when they should be spinning.
check for low coolant level make sure coolant system been bleed from air.make radiator full coolant and coolant reservoir on the full cold mark.if all is good the cooling fan relay could be bad or the engine coolant temperature sensor could be faulty.
Turn vehicle off. Allow to cool. Raise hood.
Try to see if the fans spin freely by hand. If not, replace. If they do spin, proceed to next step.
Check coolant level, add if needed. Remember-radiator must be cool before opening cap. Make sure radiator cap is secure and tight if coolant was added.
Start vehicle. Observe coolant gauge as vehicle warms. Fans should come on when temp gauge reads halfway between c and h.
If fans do not come on see if they come on when you turn on ac or heat. If doing this makes them come on, suspect faulty cooling fan sensor switch. If they don't come on replace cooling fan sensor switch and fan relay.
You evidently have a problemwith your engine cooling system. Check to make sure that the cooling fins on your A/C Condensor and Radiator are not clogged up with dirt and debris. Check that your mechanical fan clutch has some resistance to pushing it by hand. If it spins too freely. the fan clutch could be worn out. Check to see how much air it is actually moving through the radiator. When the engine is at operating temperature and the A/C is on, This fan should be turning at a very high speed and blowing HOT wind in your engine compartment. I believe that your vehicle is also equipped with an electric cooling fan. The electric cooling fan should be running any time the A/C compressor is engaged. If not, then you must diagnose this failure.
The radiator fan may not be blowing.
Idle car with parking brake engaged.
Turn OFF Air Conditioner
Pop open hood and look at the radiator fan.
It is not spinning.
Turn ON Air Conditioner and look at fan.
The fan MUST be spinning.
Replace the "Radiator fan" relay switch.
Check primary fuses and replace as needed.
