if the fan electric fan is not comining on, you need to check the fan motor to see if your motor is bad on the fan. check it by running a hot wire directly from your car battery to the fan elecrtic plug.
Sensor in air filter is one of MANY that's connected to your cars computer. I suspect the sensor your looking for is aux fan sensor which is mounted on side of your radiator. It's a brass fitting with electrical connections coming from it.
Hope this helps, it it does please leave feedback and vote Thank You and Good Luck

It sounds like you should replace the temperature sensor that controls the fan. This is usually located in the radiator and has electrical wires connected to it. Trace the wires from the radiator fan ( not the air conditioner fan!) to the sensor.
If the radiator is aluminum you may need special anti-freeze to prevent damage.
