Does my 2002 Cadillac Seville SLS have a cooling fan switch, and, if so, where is it located?

Cooling fan switch ?????? Has a engine coolant temp. sensor , That inputs info to the PCM/ECM - engine computer ! The PCM / ECM interpits the voltage signal from software programmed into it as to what temp . of the coolant is . When the engine coolant temp. reaches
The PCM commands the low-speed fans ON under the following conditions:
• The engine coolant temperature exceeds approximately 106°C (223°F).
• The transmission fluid temperature exceeds 150°C (302°F).
• The A/C pressure reaches 199 psi (1372 kPa).
The cooling fans will switch from low to OFF when the coolant temperature drops below 102°C (216°F).
The PCM commands the high-speed fans ON under the following conditions:
• The engine coolant temperature reaches 112°C (234°F).
• The transmission fluid temperature is more than 151°C (304°F).
• The A/C pressure reaches 260 psi (1792 kPa).
• Certain DTCs are set.
The cooling fans will switch from high to low, except when DTCs are set, when the coolant temperature drops below 106°C (223°F).

The PCM turns on the cooling fans by energizing three different relay's .

2005 ford freestar if its not water pump could it be coolant? Fixed my thermostat and still temp rises

Check the coolant level, add some if needed. If you never bled the air out or flushed the system with new coolant, that would be wise to do. Air pockets in your coolant tank can cause pressure and Temps to rise. Make sure your fans are kicking on, once your car reaches a certain temp, it hits a temp switch telling the fan to kick on. Could be faulty coolant temperature sensor as well

the FSM covers this. it states the exact temp.
if it must come , in view of facts,
(about 250F ,using a pyro gun)
then it can only be these:
with a volt meter this is childs play, got 12v to fan, . ?
1: bad fan, (hot wire it, does it work, yes, skip to #1)
2> wire to fan broken,. that means the connectors too.
3: The relay that drives this fan is bad,
4: the signal that drives the relay coil is dead.

easy as 1,2,3,4 , you can do it in any order, and get the same answer.
and is covered in USA 100% at alldata dot come.
you never once hinted at location.... sadly.

P0125 code

The code means the engine is not reaching normal operating temp.
You would need to use a scanner to see what the temp sensor is telling the computer the coolant temp is.
If the coolant temp sensor is showing 180 degrees or more after 5 min of run time, the problem could be the computer.

I have an overheating problem on my 1980 kz 1300 i think its the thermostat but i dont wanna buy a new one if that is not the issue is there any other solutions to this problem or is it the thermostat?

The thermostat will only cause overheating if is not opening - or not opening at the correct temperature. Before replacing it, you may want to rule out some of the other possible causes of overheating: Bent or otherwise obstructed radiator cooling fins, contaminated or insufficient coolant, clogged radiator, incorrect temp gauge reading, inoperative cooling fan, defective radiator cap, etc.
Check the above things, then ask yourself: Does it overheat when riding at highway speeds, or just in slow riding conditions? Is it really overheating? Coolant temps that exceed about 250F is cause for concern. Coolant temperatures which do not exceed 250F while negotiating stop-and-go traffic on a hot summer day are quite acceptable.
If all else appears in good working order, remove the thermostat and place it in a pot of water, over the stove. With a thermometer handy to measure the water temperature, begin heating. You should be able to see the thermostat begin to open by the time the water gets up to 185F - and it should be fully open at 210F. If it fails this basic test, replace it.
