LOCATION OF THE SECONDARY LOW VOLTAGE SENDING UNIT TO THE COOLING FANS?

My car was overheating so my father replaced the intake manifold gasket. But that's not what caused it to overheat. So now he's trying to get my cooling fans working because they don't click on when there suppose to. But he can't find the location of the sending units. Where would they be or what do I replace to get the fans working again? Could this be causing the engine to overheat? Is there any other electrical work that needs to be done to fix the fans?
Does the engine overheat when it is driven at highway speeds? Also, have you checked the fan relays under the hood in the relay box?

It drives normal on highway. When I start stopping n going is when the temperature rises. The fuses n relays seem fine.
If the relays, fuses, and fan motors are good, then there is either a problem with the wiring or the temp sensor.
If I remember correctly, in 2001, there was a temp sensor that was read by the PCM. When a certain temp was reached, the PCM sent power to the fan relay and that, in turn, sent power to the fan motor.
Do you know where the temp sensor is located? We're hoping we don't have to break down the engine again.
