Coolant fans do not come on, not even by unplugging coolant temperature sensor. I replaced coolant temperature sensor, tested three fan relays, both max fuses, both fan motors, they are all working. Checked as many wires and connectors as I could. What could I have missed?

Hello again,

The only other component in the cooling fans circuit is going to be the Power-train Control Module (PCM). You can check the two wires and the PCM connector for any corrosion or unwanted resistance, but other than that I would have to say, by process of elimination, the PCM is bad. Let us know what you are able to find out, please.

Thanks,
Alex
