Thermostat not opening/ closing properly. You need to buy a new thermostat rated for your engine. The thermostat is located under a housing usually near the water pump on your engine.

First you must check why the overheat (one shot) thermostat has operated Is yours a hard water area ? If so the heater tank and heating element could be scaled up. This will severely limit the transfer of heat into the flowing water and cause an overheat of the heating element. The overheat will open the one shot thermostat. Check the heater tank and if not scaled fit a new one shot thermostat. Obtainable from Mira as a spare part. If the heater tank is heavily scaled I also advise to fit a new heater tank

Does the thermostat have anything to do with the radiator fan not working?

Yes,youll need a new thermostat if the fans not else would your car keep cool... The fan is probably an electric fan and is independent of the thermostat. The thermostat regulates the amount of water being allowed to run through the engine to maintain a constant temperature. The fan pulls the heat out of the water that flows though the radiator. Related but not connected. There is a fan sensor that tells it when to come on and when to shut off. I don't know where it is, but it's there somewhere. Check that and check to see if there is power to the fan. Might be a blown fuse.
