It is likely the engine coolant temperature sensor (ECT) A or the wiring. The ECT sensor that is on top of the thermostat housing that controls the fans when the car is running. It is very simple to replace.

As for the wiring: The two wire colors that go to the ECTA connector are green and black. The green wire should have 12V on it with the key turned to the II position. The black wire should have continuity to ground.

There are a couple of coolant temperature sensors. If you short the connector to ECT-A sensor, the fans should turn on when the car is started.

Your post is confusing. When engine coolant temp overheats, does only radiator fan fail to run and condensor (ac fan) runs? Please clarify.

good luck
