There is a fan switch on the drivers side of the radiator about 8" from the bottom. It kicks on at about 210. It has a connector either right at the switch or it may have a short pigtail. Coolant will come out if the switch is removed. The other fan comes on with the A/C.

I took my cooling fans assembly out the one thing i found. That was visible that looked like a pigtail was located bottom of the diver side of radiator by the t radiator hose. Is it possible that this the fan switch just because the part looks like a sensor not fan switch . Or is it possible its in front of radiator where i have not removed the bumper . Thank you for help.


Yes it is just above the radiator mount 6" or so above the lower radiator hose. It looks like the wiring unplugs from the switch.
