Try a test jumper wire directly from the battery or fuse connection to ensure the fan motor hasn't gone bad itself { ensure you keep your hands free from the fan when performing the brief test.}

If the fan functions check the wiring from the fan motor to the line feed for any cracks or bad connections.

If all that checks out get your temp sensor and you should be set.

In a 1999 ford tauras dohc.. what cooling sensor tells the fans to kick on..the one with 2 wires or the one with 1 wire??. My fans wont kick on...

Technically its the two wire sensor. Gray red and lite green red wires.
The sensor tells the computer what the coolant temp is, and the computer decides if the fan relay is needed. The fans come on at around 220 degrees.

My 1998 ford taurus overheats when idling but cools down when you drive what should I do?

Check your your radiator cooling fan should come on at about 220 deg. and off at about 210 deg. at idle with a/c off, if it stats to over heat turn a/c on, fan should come on right away, if it dont check voltage at fan motor, if you do have voltage, you have a bad radiator fan motor, more then likely the reason it don't over heat while driving is air is being push through radiator where it cool's the coolant before it goes back into the engine, at stop's no air running through and never cool's coolant .

Why does my radiator fan not work

Check the 60 amp fuse in the under hood fuse block for the rad fan, if it blew the rad fan is probably seizing up and will need replacing, the other posibility is that the coolant temp sensor is not working properly and the computer does not know how hot the coolant is! and may need replacing.

Why is my car running hot ? The fan wont kick on and we have replaced the high and low sensor

Assuming ALL fuses and connections are good..... test the "CONSTANT CONTROL RELAY MODULE" should be on the radiator support,a black box with wire to it.....test for voltage at the wires colored: R/LG, V, BK/O. pins-3-8-10-11-13.....when engine gets hot the output voltage to the FAN motor is wire color : R/O, pin- 1 &2.....if no output voltage it may be the CCRM.....the other is the PCM....hope this helps you..GL

Coolant fans on a 92 coupe deville

You checked the fuses, that's a good place to start. Usually electric fans are powered up using a relay. It's likely that each fan has it's own individual relay so it's strange that niether fan works. Is the engine overheating? Try turning on the air conditioner after starting the engine. One of the two fans should definitely turn on immediately after switching on the A/C. If so, then the other fan, which would be controled by the temp sensor circuit, might be bad. Before replacing anything you may want to check the temperature sensor is working properly. The relay(s) are probably located in the engine compartment usually near the firewall. Hope this is helpful, if so, please remember to rate my response. Thanks.

Cooling fan relay 1998 neon

on the left(driver's) side of the lower rad support. It's a small flat relay with a plug on the bottom and usually has a blue colored front. held on by two screws. Also, there may be more rad fan relays in the underhood fuse/relay box.
Good luck.

1992 5.0 camaro no cooling fan except with ac

Yes there is a relay, but first answer this question, do you know the fans don't come on until the engine temp is above 230+ degrees F.? That is almost in the hot zone. run a scanner on the engine and watch the ECT sensor temp reading to verify proper cooling fan operation, a quick test to see if the system works is to unplug the ECT sensor, the fans will go into failure mode and turn on to avoid damage to the engine.
