If it isn't down the side of the radiator it could well be the type that runs off the engine management temp sensor making the fans controlled by the ECU, these are located within a 4" radius of where the top hose meets the engine (normally thermostat housing) and normally are just a 2-pin connector.

Fan senor switch for a 1997 jeep location

good question...
Fan, which fan?
1: heater fan (blower)
2: front A/C condensor fan
3: engine coolant fan. ????????????????????
i must guess engine option, so will guess, 4.0L I-6
why do you ask, i can tell what problem you have ,unless a symptoms is stated, is engine overheating?
the 2.5L and 4.0L have electric fans with the A/C option
and run by different rules,
with no A/C option the 4L uses a clutch fan.
chapter 7, page 8, FSM.

did you use a scan tool to see if the ECU, detects electric fan issues.
it does do that. page 19. and the 2 fuses? same page, same chapter.
the same chapter reveal the trip on , temperatures.

now for a jump to how it works page.
chapter 8w , wiring,
page 20 index.
8w-42 fan motor relay.
42-9 or PDF page 213
the answer is there. the fan is totally operatered
by the PCM, or ECU.
the ECU closes the relay to the fan
any time the ECT shows too hot.
the ECT is a PRIME sensor to run EFI, knows coolant temps at all time. so there is (was) a need for and switch or fan thermost
the PCM know the temp and closes the relay on demand.
the PCM has trip table,. the fan activate rule.

so if hot wiring the fan fails, the fan is bad
if the 4 voltage to the fan relay are good the relay is bad
if the fuse are blown the relay will no get voltage power.
if the PCM fails to ground the coil on the relay that means
the PCM thinks the engine is cold, is it?
if the coolant is cold then the the termostat is stuck open.

see how symptoms , prove what is going on,
is engine overheating, ?

wiring 8w

if the engine is overheating,
we test the fan, if dead.
the fan comes on

the fan comes on by 4 rules, the A/C on or not.
ill answer for a/c off, lazy
fan comes on at 218F
fan trips off at 199F
the coolant thermostat is 195F.
so the test for the fan is to idle until the coolant hits 218F
and note the fan coming on,
that is the test, if it fails in any way we diagnose it with a simple voltmeter
how is that for an answer.
if you have sympotms , do post them so we can work the real problems.

2000 Acura TL overheating at low speeds with A/C on

Before ordering or installing fans I would buy and change your Coolant Temperature Senor on top of the engine block. It plugs in to the ECU and tells the fan when to kick the fans on. If that does not work you also have a temperature on the bottom of the radiator, known as your fan switch.

Radiator fan not working fan is ok

There is a cable connecting from radiator fan to thermostat switch.
Thermostat switch located at near engine block, you can trace it from radiator hose to engine block, there is a terminal connected to thermostat.
To check wheter fan is ok or not, pull out/disconnet the terminal, radiator fan will be turned on, if not, this could be a problem with radiator fan.
Otherwise you should clean terminal or replace thermostat switch.

94 tracer problem

not sure about the popping thing, but about the fan, try hot wiring the fan motor to the battery to make sure the motor is not burnt out. could also be a relay or a fuse link. I'm working on a 95 and having trouble locating the fuse links. I replaced my radiator fan motor, thermostat was busted, dropped new fuses in and a relay. Still no fan action. Mine must be a fuse link. If you are lucky it will be something quick to diagnos. Good luck.
