Connecting the fan straight to the battery would tell you if the fan works or not. Then I would look at the temperature switch that controls the fan. There are probably 2 or 3 on the car, one for the fan, one for the gauge, and maybe one for the computer, you have to find the right one. It is way cheaper to buy this stuff at a junkyard where you take if off. You could probably get it for $5, where it would cost about $30 otherwise. Same for the fan. Then you can afford to just switch the sensor to see if it is the trouble.
