you could try unpluging the temperature sensor,which is at the top front of the engine by the thermostat if they still don't kick in it could be the black box that attaches to the fan assembly and the fan motors plug into that. and there is a 40amp fuse in the fuse box under the hood for the fans.

also do a coolant flush. My moms ford overheated the other day. Old coolant was the problem. Simple coolant flush and its running perfectly now.

Yes yes, contrary to common misconception or any adherent belief, Methyl/Ethyl Alcohol has only a certain time lifespan!

I'm not even gonna comment here... oh wait i just did. Anyways, some advice I would give is to keep an eye on the problem. I've had my share of car problems and its always possible the wrong thing was fixed, or more than one problem existed, either coincidentally or both problems being related. Especially with electrical devices like fans, relays, etc. They are all connected and could easily cause problems with other parts. Just a word of advice. Also, not to be a jerk, but your problems could be more easily understood with some puncuation and a good spell-checker. :fun_08:
