there are aftermarket kits that have their own thermo-switch if this is what you're inquiring about...you could look to see if there are two screw in temp sensors...the aftermarkets use a "wand" that get's stuffed into the fins of the radiator~

where is the coolant temp sending unit sensor ( talks to the computer - 2nd sensor) located.?

there are three...should be...one for the needle gauge on your dash....one for the fans to come on and one for the computer to make adjustments to air/fuel....in theory...it is going to be our job to find all three~

    The passenger side radiator cooling fan does not turn on until the estimated temp reaches 225 to 230 degrees. I find this to be a bit hot. These temps are when the car is idling as in traffic jams.
