Does it still overheat at highway speed, 50+ mph? If so it's not the fans. There is plenty of air-flow the fans are not needed. And do you know for fact that the temp sensor is bad? You have hooked up a known hot wire they run? Even then it's just as much or more work to just replace the sender than by-pass it, you will have to install a switch somewhere, or have them run all the time.
