The sensor is located on the intake just behind the thermostat housing. Remove your breather line and loosen your throttle body to disconnect electrical connection. I used a 1/2 in drive 22 mm deep well socket to remove and install. The plastic tip had to be sanded a little to get the new one to slide in. Be careful these things break very easy. However my hand steadying the socket was all I needed.

My radiator cooling fans on my 1999 Buick Century will not come on. I have checked the fans and they are good, just getting no power. I have replaced the coolant temp sensor to no avail.


Have you checked to see if a fuse has been blown that operate the fan? Check your fuse box and book for the info concerning your radiator fan or any fan operation. That's a good start.

1995 buick century cooling fan doesn't work.


I have the 1999 Century and have finally found the Head Gasket is leaky coming out the exhaust. I have to pray for the temperature gauge to come down. The mechanic I go to finally put in nearly a quart of Head Gasket sealant and she ran fine for a couple months and I popped a hose. From here I asked him to put some more sealant in, yet it did not work. I needed coolant and the only way to put it in was to open a relief valve when it was getting hot while running and it took almost a whole gallon. Without knowing of this relief valve I would be dead. I've heard of a way to put a resistor in the coolant fan harness to turn it on earlier, does anyone out there have an answer to this. Thanks a million. DaveF1953@Yahoo.com

Is there a cooling fan switch on a 96 buick century if so where is it located


The engine temp sensor sends a signal to the computer and the computer grounds the fan relay when it is needed.
I'm showing 6 relays on the firewall under the windshield.
The two on the right side are high and low radiator fan relays.

I have a 2002 buick century. It seems to be running hot. I have flushed the coolant system and refilled the radiator. I have replaced the temp sensor and the molule in the fuse box, still the electric...


With the A/C on the coolant fan should run constantly to cool the A/C condenser in front of the radiator. With the A/C off the coolant fan should come on around 210 degrees and stay on until the coolant temperature drops to between 190 and 200 degrees. Hope this helps.

Radiator cooling fans not coming on. All fuses


The fans are controlled by the computer.They don't normally come on until about 235deg.F...way past boiling.use a scan tool to accurately read engine temp and see if they do eventually come on.they should cycle on&off with the A/C if it 's warm enough for the compressor to come on.
