Update, found out the ''ets off light'' has nothing to do with engine temperature. It is the traction control, and I can turn it on and off with a button. However the fan still does not work ever. And the temperature guage never reads above half. It slowly rises to half while driving and appears normal, however the car behaves like it it is overheating, stalling after 10-20 minutes of non-highway driving. I ordered a temerature sensor, and now I am going to test the fan. When it stalls though, it is clearly way too hot. Just opening the hood you feel extreme heat, so I am thinking the sensor is bad anyway? It only stalls on warm days, and then only during city driving and after 10-20 minutes. Also the fan does not come on. My gut tells me its overheating but my temp sensor says its not. Could something else be causing this?
