Does my 2002 Cadillac Seville SLS have a cooling fan switch, and, if so, where is it located?

Cooling fan switch ?????? Has a engine coolant temp. sensor , That inputs info to the PCM/ECM - engine computer ! The PCM / ECM interpits the voltage signal from software programmed into it as to what temp . of the coolant is . When the engine coolant temp. reaches
The PCM commands the low-speed fans ON under the following conditions:
• The engine coolant temperature exceeds approximately 106°C (223°F).
• The transmission fluid temperature exceeds 150°C (302°F).
• The A/C pressure reaches 199 psi (1372 kPa).
The cooling fans will switch from low to OFF when the coolant temperature drops below 102°C (216°F).
The PCM commands the high-speed fans ON under the following conditions:
• The engine coolant temperature reaches 112°C (234°F).
• The transmission fluid temperature is more than 151°C (304°F).
• The A/C pressure reaches 260 psi (1792 kPa).
• Certain DTCs are set.
The cooling fans will switch from high to low, except when DTCs are set, when the coolant temperature drops below 106°C (223°F).

The PCM turns on the cooling fans by energizing three different relay's .

Cooling fan relay location for a 1992 corvet

the air con fan comes on with the air con switch. the engine cooling fan comes on when the engine temp. censer reaches operation temp. most times the air through the radiator when driving is enough to keep the censer cool and the fan not working if you stop at lights for any length of time it will come on.

A/c compressor won't engage and the cooling fan not operating

The cooling fan does not come on until the engine temp reaches 229 degrees. it is controlled by a cooling fan relay. Cheeck for power at the fan motor and check the relay. The A/C. If yuor a/c system is low on freon the low pressure switch on the accumulator will not complete the circuit for the clutch. Check the charge, voltage present at the clutch or the low pressure switch. You can install a jumper in place of the switch to test.

Temperature fluctuation

The water temp sensor is a switch that closes the circuit when the temp reaches a certain level and that switch sends power to the fans. Either your water temp sensor is faulty (always on) or the wiring from the sensor is shorted out. 
The easiest fix would be to replace the temp sensor. They are cheap, and replacing it will likely fix the problem. Your local parts store can get you one and show you where it is located on your car. 
If it doesn't fix your issue, at least you'll have eliminated that from the problem and can search for the short in the wiring. 
If you know basic electrics a simple auto circuit tester (cheap at any auto parts store) or multimeter will help you trace the short. If you're competent with electronics, you can always wire the sensor to the fan independently of the car's wiring harness to workaround the short. Be sure though that you have a workshop manual with a wiring diagram and that you make the correct connections to the switch, fan and the car's 12V power.
I'll bet that replacing the sensor will take care of it though.
Hope this helps.

Car gets hot

When the car reaches a preset temp the cooling fan is supposed to energize a realy the turns the cooling fan on....But if you turn the air on you basicly bypass the temp switch because you must have air moving at all times for the ac.. So now i would be looking for a defective temp switch or defective relay.....

Coolig fans dont run

the cooling fans are run by a relay it's located in the junction box. check this. there is also a thermoatic sensor located near the fans next to radiator. the fans should free spin when the engine is off this is a good indiacator that it's not the fan themselves. if the relay checks out(run engine and switch the fan relay with the a/c clutch relay when the engine reaches 180 degrees you will feel the upper radiator hose get hot the fans will turn on a short time later iof they don't it's the temp sensor near the radiator if they do it's a bad relay...please rate this thanks
