SOURCE: both cooling fans will not come on

Did you try jumping the cooling fans with direct power to see if they worked and the fan motor isnt burned out?You can turn the a/c on while running the car and it should turn the fans on even if the car isnt heated up.

SOURCE: Low coolant sensor on a 1998 buick

The coolant sensor should be located near where the upper radiator hose is attached to the engine and has a wire connector on it with 2 wires. It's the only sensor near there. Then there's the sensor that'll be attached to your reservoir tank somewhere along the firewall

SOURCE: Trying to locate the temperature

The sensor is on the passnger side of the radiator below the radiator cap. It is black and square and has a single plug at the bottom. It is held onto the radiator by a metal retaining clip. Remove the clip and the sensor pulls out of the radiator. Disconnect the wire by pulling carefully on the plastic lock and pull on the plug. Fluid will leak out to level of sensor. Drain or place catch basin below sensor plug to catch radiator fluid. Sensor can be purchased through a dealer for around $70 US, or Auto-Zone for under $40 US. Your choice.



Hope this helps

Where is the tempurture cooling sensor located on a 1994 buick regal


The coolant temperature sensor is a thermistor mounted in the engine coolant stream. A thermistor is an electrical device that varies its resistance in relation to changes in temperature.

For 2.5L engines, the coolant temperature sensor is located on the left side of the cylinder head.

For MFI engines, the coolant temperature sensor is located on the intake manifold water jacket or near (or on) the thermostat housing.

Low Coolant light flashing on 1996 Buick Regal 3.8


The low coolant sensor should be located in the passenger side radiator tank, You need to take it out and clean the sludge off of it for it to work right. Or you can just unplug it and forget about it, the light will go out and it won't cause any problems.
