Question about 2001 Ford Focus
Hello, on your model the Head sensor sends a signal thru a resistor pak and the ECU. If the fan runs on high speed when you turn on the A/C then the resistor pak is good. If the resistor pak is bad neither of the fans will run when the A/C is on. Change the resistor pak.
If the fan runs on high with the A/C on, then the head sensor is not indicating a high temperature condition when the A/C is off. The A/C switch overides the head sensor. The head sensor is on the Passengers' side of the car above the Alternator. The head sensor is not throwing a signal to start the High speed fan. The head sensor is a long pin screwed into the head at that location.
While you say the fan is working, it may not be working well enough because of the head sensor.
