You have about three sensor on your car for the fans, One of them is on the bottom of the radiator , itscrews in and has a two wire plug going to it , You will find two more sensors on the head next to the distributor. There's two different sensors for the fans one is so when you turn on the a/c the fans come on right away and the other one is so when the water gets to a certain temperature it turns the fan on. One way you can check to see which one might be bad is to start the engine up and turn on your a/c and the fans should come on right away , if they don't then you need to replace that sensor. The way you can check the one for the water is to turn everything off ' the engine also , now start the engine back up with a/c off and wait for about 15 mins. and the fan should come on , if not then replace that one.

its the brown one.. its right under the distributor.. look at your radiator and follow the bottom line hose to the motor.. if you wanna test it out then unplug the brown one and take a paper clip and jump the plugs together.. then turn your car on the on position.. your fan should be spinning.. if it is then you need a new sensor..
