    Before i offer any repair advice i wanted to let u know when these fans are supposed to come on, that is around 225-235 degrees fahrenheit, allot of people think they don't work because the gauge is well on it's way to reading hot when they engage. let me know if that isn't what is happening.

Either the relays are bad or fan motors are shot. You can connect wires directly to battery power to determine if it is relay or fan motors. Most likely relay since car is fairly new. Also change that temp sensor is shot but I doubt it. Check engine light would be on.
So this brings me back to the fan relay.

What sensors are bypassed when the cooling fan is put on a fusible link on 89 firebird


I'm not sure I completely understand your question, if youre wiring the cooling fan directly to power (with the fusible link) you'll be bypassing the PCM's output to the fan relay...the PCM uses the Coolant temp sensor (CTS) as an input to determine when to turn the fan on.

I have a 89 firebird cooling fan don't come on I'm


have you check to make sure the cooling fan is working and not seized. this is a common problem with most cars. this is where I would start then go to the relay. the relay is usually mounted on the firewall under the hood and there is a plastic cover that covers a row of relays. don`t remember which one is for the cooling fan though, they may be marked on the underside of the cover.

Are you getting a ground signal from the engine computer to turn the fan relays on ?
The computer grounds the relay when the engine temp reaches 220 degrees, or when the ac compressor is running.

Cooling fan problem on 1992 pontica firebird


The cooling fan switch is built into the ECM. The ECM tells the fan to turn on at about 220 degrees. If you have a bad coolant temp sensor you might have trouble there. Usualy I find the relay or fan motor to be the problem. In some cases the ECM or CTS is the problem. I hope this helps.
Thank You,
Roy
