SOURCE: Cooling fan wont work
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.

SOURCE: cooling fan
Yes, it's probably the PCM. I had the same problem, and upon replacing the PCM it started working again. If your cooling sending unit is new, and so many parts of your fan assembly are new, it's probably not receiving the signal from the sending unit. Hope this helps.

there isa short in the wiring somewhere,which a shop can check for you,or check your thermostat. after 20 years i still have to make sure tat i dont install it upside down. which is easy to do if your in a hurry. my bet is that the wiring going to the coolant sensor has a bare spot and grounding somewhere.

You should have a check engine light on if your coolant temperature sensor is bad. It could be your fan relay. It's position should be located on your fuse box cover(s). To check the fan itself, unplug it and notice that the black (or darkest) wire is the ground, so you can hook your jumper wire to any metal part of the car. The other wire goes to the positive terminal of a car battery. Good luck.
