AnswerIt's in the Thermostat housing, it's the same as the sending unit for the temperature guage. ANSWERThe sensor that controls the fan, by sending the ECM data, is the one located below the thermostat. The sensor on the firewall side, in the head, below the EGR, is the sender for the car's temperature gauge. They are NOT the same. If you don't believe me, go price them at the parts store. If you're having trouble with overheating, it could also be the ECM, or the fan relay (on the firewall of the car), or the fan motor. Grounding the top right two connectors of the ALDL while the car switch is on but the car is NOT started, should cause the fan to run, telling you the basic circuit, the motor, and the relay work.

Because if the sensor temperature part is defective it will automatically turn on the fan all the time. If you unplug the temperature sensor in the cooling system the fan will automatically come on. You need to replace the temperature sensor that goes to the Powertrain Control Module (computer).
