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.

I've been told that a sensor located in the plastic reservoir has gone bad. I'm not sure where the sensor is located. It could be located inside the tip of the plastic hose that goes from the radiator to the reservoir.

I believe it is on the block where your engine coolant runs into the block from the radiator. There should be two wires that run to a plastic-like sensor.

The temperature sender for the coolant is located in the water outlet. The upper radiator hose goes to the water outlet. The sensor with 2 wires goes to the gauge and the sensor with 3 wires goes to the computer.

It has a coolant temperature sensor next to the thermostat housing. Follow the upper radiator hose to where it meets the engine and you'll see it behind the distributor cap

IF you're asking where the coolant level sensor is located, it is located inside the coolant reservoir (that plastic tank on the passenger's side under the hood). The electrical connection is toward the front of the reservior on the engine side.
