2002 ford focus zx5

Hi im having problems with my radiator cooling fan not coming on i think its the coolant temperature sensor or the cylinder head temperature sensor. I need the location of both so i can see if thats whats causing the problem. I would appreciate any help thanks.

i have replaced the engine cooling fan relay level 1 which is relay number 16 under the hood and still no good. I didn't think i needed to do level 2 because it has (a/c) next to it and the ac on the car doesn't work at all. Air controls 1-3 let me put a/c on but nothing blows when i set it to full it blows but doesn't let me turn a/c on. I have connected the engine cooling fan to a main power source and it turns on so i know the fan motor is working.

could i be looking into the wrong thing i have a digital multimeter and i get a beep on the connections to the fans and the fans themselves.When im measuring the cooling fan resistor (i think its called that) the thing between both fans in the shroud i get no beep to the cooling fan resistor or its connector. Could that be the problem or am i measuring it wrong with the multimeter. I do this all with the car turned off

Hey , had similar problem on mine . Check the plug in connector on the radiator/fan shroud . Ya` couldn`t see it was bad , but when I unplugged it , it was a melted crispy mess inside ! Went to 2 local junk yards and this seems to be a common problem . Checked 5 cars and all were toasted . Finally figured out you can use another plug in , think it`s for the AC . That`s solved my overheat problem for 2 years now . peace

Bad resistor is common as well, no "beep" would sure point that way....

Luck!
