It will be a cable that will be disconnected. or broken. Youll have to take some of the dash apart to see the cable and follow it to the switch. Dont be affraid to take some things apart and when you cant see, use a mirror to help you see behind the dash. work the control and watch the action. You will fix this dont get frustrated. good luck

I have narrowed the problem to a non-functioning climate control acctuator (a mechanical vent door opening/closing unit that mixes warm and cold air) Unfortunately it is located high in the dash and requires entire removal of dash panel. Shop repair manual states a repair time of 5.2 hours... GM parts $260 actuator $75 door panel......Online parts $60 to $175

Radiators do not "go out". They leak or they don't... that's it. You wasted money changing a radiator if you aren't loosing coolant. The thermostat (~$10) is all you needed to change.

The engine thermostat may be sticking closed. However the temp gauge itself or temp sending unit or wiring is defective, start with the sending unit as it is cheapest part to replace and follow the wiring into the harness and the harness itself up to the firewall. If the gas gauge is reading accurately, the dash regulator should be okay.
It is possible the electric fan thermostatic switch may not be operational, or relay intermittent/defective, or even the retrofit wiring may be questionable. You would need to run it so it fully warms up and thermostat opens.
If it was a retrofit to a "Sable" 70 Amp cooling fan, is your alternator up to the challenge?
The way to simply check for a head gasket issue is with engine cold, if you remove the cap where you fill directly into the cooling system of the engine, not the reservoir, start the engine. If you get a geyser out of the opening, you blew a head gasket or cracked a head. If you let it warm up a little bit, but not to the point where the thermostat opens, it will reveal if there is head gasket issue to be looked into. Doing this allows for the parts to begin to expand and a sealed spot cold might leak at 110 degrees F. You might also see a white cloud behind the car.
