Hello, I am Jose Sebastian. Your mechanic automotive expert, It's a pleasure to me to attend your question. Thank you very much for trust in just answer.

Dear customer, the fan is usually activated for the temperature sensor in the thermostat. and when it is defective cause problem like this, also the actuator can cause this problems.
have you checked them?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Thanks, my question was simply "where is the fan control switch / thermostat" if I could find it then I could change it. I assume it is in the water cooling system, ie engine block, somewhere but I cannot locate it.

Please let me know if you find it.

Sorry but this was a complete waste of time. I am looking for the radiator fan SWITCH. you have told me how it works, I already know this, then you show me how to change the cooling stat, again irrelivent . you clearly have no knowledge of this vehicle model so I will be applying for a refund. Thank you.
