I replaced my coolant sensor the relay for my electric fan, still my engine lights on and codes still there. Code 1491 telling me my relays bad. It is good my guess is that my PCM is bad. Checked it with code reader it tells me my PCM is good. I still think it is bad my PCM. Is there any other ways to make sure my PCM is good or bad? Also, is there a in line fuse for fan or PCM? Please help.

Diagnostic fault codes never say to replace a part or that one is bad. They only indicate the circuit or system that needs further diagnosis, or the unacceptable operating condition. When a part is referenced in a fault code, it is actually the cause of that code about half of the time.

Other than the "check engine light", what symptom or problem are you trying to solve? Does the radiator fan turn on if you unplug the two-wire coolant temperature sensor when the ignition switch is on?

"Doesn't work" can mean a dozen different things. What is the exact symptom for the AC system?

Code 118 will have set if you unplugged the two-wire coolant temperature sensor like I mentioned previously. That can be ignored, and it will self-erase after about 50 engine starts.

Are you having a radiator electric fan problem? If you are, repair that first. If the Engine Computer detects a problem in that circuit, it can inhibit the AC compressor from running to prevent adding that heat load to the cooling system.
