I'm assuming that yu are talking about cooling fan switch, this is located on the bottom of radiator. Keep in mind that you have several temperature sensors.

1992 Acura Legend 3.2L FI 6cyl
The Coolant Temperature Sensor is located: Front end cap, center, behind grill, mounted in lower passenger side of radiator
- The Cooling Fan Switch is located: Under hood, driver side, front engine area, mounted on bottom of radiator
- The Engine Temperature Sensor is located: This vehicle is not equipped with selected component
- The Temperature Switch is located: Under hood, center, front engine area, below driver side cooling fan, mounted in radiator

Hope helps.

SOURCE: Cooling Fan Control

The cooling fan control module is located in front of the radiator. It should have 3 wiring harness's coming off of it.

SOURCE: Need the Location of the temperature sensor on 95 olds cutlass.

The image isn't loading, so I can't tell if this has been 100% answered, but here's the text version:

Should be a fuse panel under the hood, passenger side near the coolant tank and radiator inlet. In that panel should be 2 large square fuses. These are fuse/relay combo deals. Switching these out should fix you right up. Mine had the same problem about a month ago and I had to replace them then.

The Coolant temp Sensor is located right under the top radiator hose (on the engine side), with a little black connector!, You might have to remove th etop hose to get to it with a deep socket and extension!.
Also Dont Forget to blled the coolant system by the bleeder valve uptop right near/above the coolant sensor!.(10MM Mini socket w/ extension IIRC!)

Why does my fan keep running in my 2003 Volvo S 60 after the car is off?

It can be faulty fan relay.The relay is not turning the system off.Or its wire short issue.Even with ignition off ,the fan relay is getting power so its not letting the fan to turn off.Bypass the fan control relay and see if still the fan works with ignition off or not.

Where is the sensor for the fans on the radiator?

There isn't an actual separate sensor for the cooling fans, instead the Engine Coolant Temperature [ECT] sensor sends a constant signal to the engine computer telling it the current coolant temp and the computer then decides when to close a relay which sends power to the cooling fan[s]. The cooling fans won't be on, even if the engine is running, unless either the a/c system is on and working or the coolant temperature reaches about 218 - 220 degrees at which point the cooling fans will be turned on and run until the coolant reaches a temperature of about 210 degrees and then it will turn off. If the a/c is on then the cooling fan[s] will be turned on and stay running to remove the heat from the a/c condensor all the while the a/c is left on. The fan[s] rarely come on at highway speeds because once the vehicle is over about 35 mph there is enough air being forced through the radiator to keep everything cool. If the fan won't work at all I usually check for a blown 30 amp fuse in the underhood fuse junction box or you could have a fan motor that has simply failed. Hope this helps a bit and good luck!

2000 BMW 323 fan keeps running under hood and has now run battery down. What could be the problem.

First - disconnect fan and charge your battery - or you could do permanent damage to it.

With the engine cool, locate the Fan thermal switch. It should be on the radiator itself. Pull off the connection (this should turn off the fan)

Check the two terminals with a meter as they should not conduct when cool.
Fit a replacement. You may loosa a little coolant - but not too much if you are quick.
Top up with similar type.

If the fan switch is ok, it may be a relay which has stuck. This should be located at the end of the fan wiring loom.

Cooling fans will not come on


Fan Relay switch is stuck open. This of course assumes your temperature sensor is working appropriately. Which I assumed since you seem to know that the engine is running hot.

Replace the fan relay switch. The relay switch is tripped when the temperature sensor tells the computer the engine is too hot.

Until you get the relay switch replaced, you can either by-pass the relay switch and directly connect the fans to the battery, or turn on your A/C ALL the time and use it at a minimum setting. This will keep the cooling fans running at all times.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

95 grand am radiator fan only runs with AC on

Cooling Fan Temp Sensor is the First thing You Check (with what you have described) Cooling Fan Should ALways come On When The A/C is turned On as A/C Adds A Load to Engine, If Temp Sensor is Faulty it Will Not Give GROUND Signal to ECM >For COOLING FAN >RELAY to Give ground and turn ON The Fan.
There ARE 2 temp Sensors that Serve Different Purposes 1 is for Dash READING GAGE & Or TEMP LIGHT the Other is For ECM or Fan Relay (SAME Thing) you Said>""can disconnect the sensor and fan continues to run" < This Leads me to think you Changed the Wrong One. Not Questioning your Skills Just Here to Help.
TEMP SENSOR FOR 3.1L V6 is Located upper RH rear of engine compartment, near exhaust system. Temp SENSOR for 2.3L Engine is Located in LH rear of engine compartment.
I Hope this Helps Lead you to a NON-OVERHEATING Pontiac.
