The fan does not turn on when the temperature guage goes beyond the half way point. The car overheats in stop and go traffic.
I can turn on the cooling fan by turning on the air conditioner.
The temperature guage works fine.
I checked the connector to the coolant temperature sensor - Got 5 volts, as advertised.
Replaced the temperature sensor (without checking it first).
Once the fan is turned on by starting the A/C, it will stay on until the temperature guage reads below the halfway point.
The problem still remains. Is it possible that the PCM needs to be reset? How can I do this?
