Best Answer

the fans are operated by means of a series of relays which are turned on or off by the engine computer. the engine coolant temp sensor that sends its signal to the engine computer is what indirectly turns on the fans. if there is no check engine light for a coolant temp. sensor code, the problem lies in the fans themselves, or the relays and related wiring.

Why is the coolant light on when the radiator is full on a 1998 Chevrolet Malibu?

Build up in the radiator system or a plug can cause this. Do a radiator flush (or have a professional do it if you're not interested but it's fairly easy if you read an online HOWTO) to remove the grime and refill with fresh coolant. This solved the problem in my 2003. Check the low coolant level sensor and replace if defective. It is in the side of the radiator.
