Question about 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier
Cooling fan does not come on and car overheats Tested fan relay with ohm meeter relay tested good when relay is "jumped" fan comes on "fan motor good" I unplugged the a/c compressor switch and fan came on as well as the check engine light. any ideas? Where is the temp sensor? is the sensor for the temp gage the same? The temp gage is working. what sensor tells the fan to come on?
The water temp sensor is located near the thermostat housing. This sensor is what tells the ECM to turn the fan on/off. The water temp sending unit is located near the same area. You know you have the correct sensor is because the water temp sensor has a 2 prong plug. The water temp sending unit only has 1 prong.
