well there are two temperature sensors one for the computer and the other for the electric fan~ replace the ones that do not have any output~

electric fan...not sure now, the exit hose should have a sensor near it...

okay yes, that near the block is for your gauge/ecm but the one that turns the radiator fan on is one of these...cannot put a claw on this...has to be, just cannot spend any more time on this...feel free to research...to much to do right now...will check back in a day or so to see if you can come up with the answer which t-switch turns the fan on...not to the ecu..quite sure of that~

damn and tarnation cannot find this secondary thermal switch...know that it has to be there...quite certain these makers would allow all the functions of gauge and engagement of the fan all on one goody...really really sorry, I've tried on many avenues incuding a fifteen minute radiator installation in which he never addressed the connecions to the fan motors...I guess am going to have to pull up your schematic now to see how in the world are those fans enabled...will look once I got time~

just couldn't believe the planes of hell that one must disassemble the headlights and mounts and part of the front clip struggle to extract the fans~oooo thanks so much I don't have to do this kind of work anymore~ repairs seem to have gotten a lot more complicated these days~

ooooof kinda sickening~makes me uncomfortable just to go there~ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hmVVp9LrzYQ
