Default 2000 honda civic lx overheating problem from hell please help!!!!?

Okay so I was having the overheating issue, the car gets hot when driving it, sitting still with the air on or off, if I turn the heat on low it stays cool because the radiator fan was not kicking on... Okay so I bought a new radiator fan switch and replaced it.(FAN FINALLY KICKED ON) I ran the car all day with a/c on and ran great! On my way home I noticed it was getting hot again. Fan is not kicking on at the right temp. So I'm guessing that the new radiator fan switch is now junk too? Please help. I have replaced the coolant checked for air bubbles replaced thermostat heat sensor changed oil put Lucas in it. So why did the fan kick on with the new fan switch and now I have nothing? Also I tried turning car off and back on to heat up and still nothing, right now I have a jumper wire on the connector to keep it running constantly when the accessories come on. I really don't like rigging things. THANK YOU!>>>ORIGINAL POST

Okay I have answered you twice now. You listened about the fan switch good now dont listen to anyone else but me.

You fixed problem 1 of 2. Next you need to fix your temperature thermostat. It is a 10 dollar part. Your current one is probably getting stuck.

It is not your water pump, it is not a clogged radiator like the other people said in your previous questions.
