Call up the dealer and ask what commands the fans to come on once the car reaches operating temp, on alot of imports, there is a fan control box of some sort that actually sends the sig to the fans to come on.
If it's the temp sensor and the computer tells the fans to come on you could be looking at a faulty computer.
This would deffinetly be worth taking to the dealer to diagnose so that you don't keep wasting your time and money chasing a ghost.

If you've got the hydraulic fan, check to see that the solenoid at the power steering pump is plugged in. My 1993 3.0 had this happpen, and that's what was wrong. You have to pull the front passenger side wheel off to access the pump. Just stick your hand up in there and feel around. You'll find it. One way to check is to let the car idle and turn the a/c on full blast. You should hear the fan start to roar after a few seconds. If it doesn't, then check the solenoid wire. Worked for me!

Cooling Fan Temp Sensor is the First thing You Check (with what you have described) Cooling Fan Should ALways come On When The A/C is turned On as A/C Adds A Load to Engine, If Temp Sensor is Faulty it Will Not Give GROUND Signal to ECM >For COOLING FAN >RELAY to Give ground and turn ON The Fan.
There ARE 2 temp Sensors that Serve Different Purposes 1 is for Dash READING GAGE & Or TEMP LIGHT the Other is For ECM or Fan Relay (SAME Thing) you Said>""can disconnect the sensor and fan continues to run" < This Leads me to think you Changed the Wrong One. Not Questioning your Skills Just Here to Help.
TEMP SENSOR FOR 3.1L V6 is Located upper RH rear of engine compartment, near exhaust system. Temp SENSOR for 2.3L Engine is Located in LH rear of engine compartment.
I Hope this Helps Lead you to a NON-OVERHEATING Pontiac.
Good Luck and Have A Great Evening. rejakwilson

1- Open the oil cap, if you see the milky stuff inside the cap then the engine is having a head gasket problem since water is mixing with the oil thru head gasket. You need this fixed ASAP.
2- If there is no milky stuff, you are still lucky.
3- Now you need to check if you have a thermostate or/ and radiator clogged up problem.
4- Take off the thermostate.
5- Reconnect the upper hose.
6- Run the engine
7 Squeeze the upper hose to feel water flowing inside.
8- If there is water flowing, the problem with the thermostate. Put in the new therostate. It will solve your problem.
9- If there is no feeling of water flowing then you have a problem with the water pump or the radiator clogged up.
10- To check if the water pump is working or not. Wait for the engine cool down.
11- Disconnect the upper hose from the radiator.
12- Turn on the engine and continue feeding water thru the radiator cap.
13- If water was pumped out at constant flow, your water pump is good. Change the radiator since it gets clogged up. This is your problem.
14- If water is not pumped out, the problem is the water pump. Change the water pump since this is the culprit.
Since the troubleshooting is involved intensive labor, most shops are just replacing part at your customer expense by replacing one after another. To be ahead of them, you troubleshoot the problem then tell them to change the correct part. Good luck .

the electric cooling fan for the radiator will not turn on when the engine reaches normal operating temp, its only supposed to come on if the engine temp goes over the normal temp. (around 220 degrees)
it is normal for the fan to come on any time the a/c or defroster is turned on.
