Question about Cars & Trucks
Needin to Identify and locate all of my engine sensors , I have a 94 Subaru impreza GC3 motor is a 1.6 Ltr . The engine will start and run until until it reaches tempature the fans cut in and bring it back to standard centre range of the gauge . after switching it of the engine will NOT retars for around 20 minutes untill the engine has cooled , the problem whit it then is when it's re-started after cooling the fans will NOT kick in again for the rest of the day . I enjoy every part of it's motoring except this MAJOR problem , i also have found it impossible to buy or find replacement parts let along the parts # id codes without pulling the car apart . It's my only means of transport as being on a Disability Pension is tough enough at the best of times .

as I have not seen this problem as you described I have worked on a caddy ac unit before that worked for little while and shut off replaced a few parts but when all was said and done tunrs out it had a small hole in condenser in front of car grille and some of freon leaked out even the new stuff I added
that's why it worked for a while as it took several days for freon to leak out could not have found leak if not for a freon detector I had borrowed from a friend it was that small ! dye did not work

SOURCE: I have a 2001 Saturn
A sugestion, dont ever power clean your engines....
Star by unplugin every conector and air dry it, Saturn is know for its electricall problems, make sure they all are clean but I will take a good look at your temperature sensor conector, seems your car is thinking cold when is hot.

the m.a.f. sensor and oxegen sensors start working when the engine get warmed up to normal and they adjust the air fuel mixure.

I had a similar problem. Is your temperature gauge pegged to the right as very hot? Or reads always cold, even when hot. If it is a 3100 motor their is a coolant temperature gauge sending unit under the air breather intake that is right next to where you replace the thermostat.
Get a haynes repair manual at a parts dealer, Amazon, or your public library.
On the Chevrolet Lumina, Monte Carlo, & Impala FWD 1995 to 2005 it's under section 3-8 on page 3-6. It goes into great detail, and it's too complicated to explain here. If your sensor is bad, but the wires and fuses are good then the fans won't run.
Your second fan only runs when the air compressor is turning, If your ac compressor is not running then the sensor will not have the passenger fan run.
You have to see if the fan motors are good and then the wiring is good, and no fuses blown. You might blow fuses so have extra blue ones if I remember right. Recheck fuses after testing.
