SOURCE: cooling fans on 2001 chevy malibu will not come on unless ac on

the relays control circuit is grounded by ECM (computer) . to check this make sure the is hot enough for the fans to be commanded on by computer and check to see if you have voltage at relay and it has ground from computer . you may need ECM.
good luck

SOURCE: need to know location of coolant temp sensor in 2003 Impala

Need more info. I see from the location of your post that you have a 2002 Blazer. Do you mean a Trail Blazer? Chevy didn't make a Blazer in 2002. The ECT (engine coolant temperature sensor) is located on the driver's side, front of the engine. (on top) It is between the ECM (engine control module aka the engine computer) and the alternator. You will most likely need to remove the alternator and it's belt to obtain easy access to the sensor. If you need to remove the alternator for access, remember to disconnect the battery's negative terminal first. The sensor has a wiring harness with a connector mounted to the top of it. After you remove the electrical connector, the sensor will screw out using a deep socket and ratchet. You will loose some coolant (antifreeze) during the change, so make sure you have some DexCool antifreeze on hand.

With no Hot Coolant going past the Sensor, you get a false reading.
Low coolant is why the sensor wasnot telling you the engine was running hot.

well if you get it scanned again, and you get a lean bank 1 and 2 code then you may have a intake manifold gasket thats leaking. I just worked on a van that had them codes. and I ended up changing the intake manifold gaskets to get it to pass the emissions test for inspection, I live in new york state, po171 and p0174 are the lean codes. we did the maf sensor, new 02 sensors, egr valve and still got this lean code. good-day and god blessyou. it was on a 99 ford windstar van.

I need to find the coolant fan sensor on a 2000 chevrolet malibu.


It doesnt have a fan sensor per say. It uses a coolant temp sensor which is located in the lower intake manifold which relays temp to computer which controls relay circuit to fans.

This is a little much to give you the detailed instruction that this job will require. Presuming you have the tools to do this job, go to the library and get the Motor Manual for the 1993 vintage vehicles and review the secion on coolant sensors.

Warning, this may be more than you want to get involved with. If you are not able to go completely through this procedure, the repair will be more costly than the original sensor replacement.
