How can we bypass the cooling sensor by the thermostat on my 2001 pontiac aztec?

You can't. The output of the sensor is used by the PCM to control fuel mix and radiator fans. Without it, the car probably won't run, and if it does, it will run poorly since there is no temp input to the PMC for fuel mixture computation.

Cooling fans not working properly

And why do you think this is a problem, they do not run anymore than what is required to cool the engine, as it gets hotter the fans will run longer at a higher speed, but you will seldom see that except on very hot days.

Engine cooling fan will continually run,

It seems you are low in coolant. The temperature sensor has air to sense instead of liquid and temperature gauge will be low. Try to fill up with coolant but sometimes it's hard to get rid of air from the system. Have you changed the engine thermostat?
Hope it helps

The HVAC blower fan on my 2001 Pontiac Aztec stopped working on settings 1-3 several weeks ago. Last week it stopped working at setting 4 and today it stopped working all together. What is the most likely...

the blower not working on settings 1-3 is the blower motor resistor. this limits the power provided to the blower motor itself to change the speed. at setting 4 it is getting full power. since it quit on 4 also, i would still say the resistor needs to be replaced first, then see if the blower comes back. you may also need a blower motor. if you have a voltmeter you can just turn the switch to 4 and see if the motor is still getting 12 volts. if it is and doesn't run, it needs a blower motor too. if it's not, then its just the resistor

Cooling fans on 04 aztec not working

Their is a sensor screwed into the radiator which sends a signal to the fan relay when the radiator gets hot and activates the fan. If you changed the relay then this is most likely the problem. But it may be the fan. To check remove the plug from the fan and when radiator get's hot check if power is comming through the wire's.

the things to check are,the fuse,the thermal fan switch,the fan relay and the fans themselves.

If cooling fan works, it maybe a sticking thermostat not opening fully. Check that cooling system is full (check cold) first. Then if that seems ok, i would replace the thermostat.
