Why does your cooling fans not work when plugged in to the temp sensor but work when its unplugged from the temp sensor?

Is the car overheating? As a safety measure, the fan will come on when the coolant sensor is unplugged. This is in case the wires come unplugged or the sensor goes bad so that the car will not overheat. If you have A/C the fan should come on within a few seconds after turning the A/C on. The fan on the car does not come on simply because it is plugged in to the sensor. It first has to get fairly hot....something like 238 degrees before the fan will come on. This is a how a correctly functioning fan will work. If it is not coming on when the gauge reads above that you may have to take it in to find out why. It could be a bad sensor....likely......or that the computer is not reading the signal correctly and thinks the car is running cooler than it is.

Why new cooling fan wont stop running?

check to see if the cooling fan temp sensor is unplugged. the sensor is located on the drivers side of the engine. the heater hose comes in from the back of the engine. there is a manifold with two sensors plugged to it. the one toward the rear of the car is the one. if this is unplugged the engine light will stay on and so will the fan. if this is not the culprit there are quite a few things that can make this happen.
