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.

Start with engine cool, & remove radiator cap. Check level in rad & fill to an inch or so from top of rad. Start car & turn heater on.(not defrost)
Now let it run until engine gets up to normal operating temperature & let it run until rad fan comes on & off, 2 or 3 times. Rev engine slightly every so often just to help disperse air in system faster. Fill rad as needed during this time. After you do that, and fan has come on & off 2 or 3 times, put rad cap back on & fill return bottle to proper mark, then see how it is.
I suspect it's just air in system & this should cure that . If not get back to me.

There are three fuses and two relays for your coolant fan. They should all be in your underhood fuse box. They may not be marked "coolant fan", so check them all, (2) 60 amp , (1) 20 amp, (1) 15 amp. If all the fuses are good, you may have a bad fan switch (temp sensor). It tells the fan when to turn on, follow the wire from the fan motor to find it.

Yes, in the underhood electrical center, a 60 amp with a red wire going to relay 1 and a 20 amp with an orange wire going to relay 1 and a 15 amp with a brown wire going to relay 2 and another 60 amp with a red wire going to relay 2. The diagram doesn't show a temp sensor, but it does show dark blue and dark green wires going to the power train control module, so it must get the temp input from there. The second fan usually comes on when the A/C is turned on and it apparently gets that signal from there also. Hope this helps.
