They do fail and when they do the typical system response is erratic or no cooling fan operation. The sensor is a huge PITA the change (alternator has to be partially removed) so I would try to test it first. Im not sure what the resistance is supposed to be at various temps.

Good luck
Thank you! I guess I'll quickly look them up, (and put my findings here). It seems my fans work quite oddly then...darnit
