Yes, those two parts are different, and "not-related". You have one or two "switches" screwed in to the engine block to turn on your electric fans when the engine is hot., and sometimes some relays also in the wiring.

SOURCE: cooling fan switch/or sensor

The Coolant temp Sensor is located right under the top radiator hose (on the engine side), with a little black connector!, You might have to remove th etop hose to get to it with a deep socket and extension!.
Also Dont Forget to blled the coolant system by the bleeder valve uptop right near/above the coolant sensor!.(10MM Mini socket w/ extension IIRC!)

Would a closed thermostat stop the radiator fan from turning on when the temperature is within heat range.it turns on when I turn ac on,is that a different cause when not using ac.


There are two different thermostats--one in the cooling system, and one just to turn on fans. The AC has a separate circuit to turn on fans regardless of engine temp, so tind the the fan thermostat and test it.

What is causing my truck to still overheat after I replaced the thermostat.


What is year--make--model? Are you just going by the temp gage, are there other overheating issues? Is the coolant boiling or anything, are you losing coolant?
Some possibilities, air in the system, radiator, radiator fan, water pump, combustion gases in the coolant. I'm sure I'm leaving something out?

Coolant fan will not come on, Fan motor OK


Check the switch that triggers the fan, when the car is hot the switch should be closed (passing current). This would be my #1 suspect.

Does anyone make an oe fan switch for a 1994 pont grand prix 3.1 that turns the fans on, between 190 to 200 that will shut them off at 180


The vehicle computer turns the fan on and off. It determines when to turn it on from the signal it receives from the coolant sensor. It does not turn it on at 190 or 200, that is barely normal operating temp. it usally comes on around 225. To run the fan at those temps. would not be good for the performance of the engine, it would make it run to cool, so I don't think you will find your switch from an OE source.

How do you know if your engine is overheating? the coolant says 210 degrees wut do i do


When your engine is operating normally, the temp on the gauge should be between 190 and 225. The thermostat is set to open at 190 and this controls minimum engine temp. If you sit in traffic the temp will climb to 225 and then the cooling fan will begin to operate to make sure that you don't overheat.You know that water boils at 212 but you have to add 10 degrees for every pound of pressure the rad cap is set to. Also your coolant has antifreeze in it which raises the boiling point even more. A normal overheat condition of your engine would be 300 or more. Does this help?

CEL is ON. OBD code P2181. I already replaced the ECT 3 mo ago due to OBD code P0118.


P2181 is a overheating engine.  
Can be:
Bad fan themoswitch, temp sensor themostat water pump impeller fan motor or fuse on battery
check to see if fans work by turning on Air Conditioner (fans should run with A/C on). Turn A/C off, warm engine, check to see if fans come on, if they do NOT it may be thermo switch on radiator on lower left side, has 3 wire plug, takes 1-1/8" wrench/socket to remove.  This thermo switch controls fans when temp reaches 195F, if fans do not come on at engine temp 190-195F try  replace switch VW part number: 1J0-959--481-A  You can verify if the switch is bad by shorting wire 1 and 2 (fans should come on when jumpered).
