When the engine is cool, take the radiator cap off and make sure the radiator is completely full of coolant. Also check the operation of the cooling fans.

AnswerMost likely the fan relay.

another possibility is your fans are unplugged from the connector at the bottom of the engine

With the engine OFF & cold the fan should not turn more then a 1/4 turn or less. If it spins more then a turn that could be part of the overheating problem. I would check your water pump & belt.
