My ex replaced my original radiator with one from Ecology (the junkyard). Its from a car that looked just like mine, but the difference in the radiator is that it has 3 rows instead of 2(i really dont know what that means,but thats the way my ex described it). It fits good and works really good, but the problem is that now my fans are not turning on! We connected them to the battery and they ran, so according to a general motors manual, it means that the coolant fan switch is defective. The fans worked just fine before he replaced the radiator, so could the problem be the difference in how many rows the radiator has? And the most important question we have is where exactly can we find this coolant fan switch? Again, the manual says its mounted on the intake manifold, near the distributor. Although not a certified mechanic, my ex is very mechanically inclined and has worked on many of my cars as well as his own and others', but e cannot locate this switch for the life of him, so please explain carefully and if not can you direct us on how to get a diagram of where it can be found? It would be extremely appreciated as I have 5 kids, am a single working parent, and am economically challenged(to put it nicely). Thanks again for your help in advance!
P.s. My ex also checked all the fuses and they are all good.

I just bought a Park Avenue and have only the ignition and trunk key. Can I get a keyless entry and duplicate keys?

When the traction control takes over it is really noisy. What is causing this??

I have been told that the electronic duel control programmer has disinagrated and is the reason the unit does not work in a normal manner. I have located a plastic black box behind the right side of the glove box with wires connected in what appears to be two different places.. Is this the programmer and can a average american male exchange it without major problems.

The lower part of the power seats seems to move in all directions. The back rests on both the drivers and passenger side will not move when you move the toggles. You can hear a noise that appears to indicate that power is at a motor but no motion at the drivers backrest. A very slight movement is noticed in the pass. backrest. The backrest does not change position, just a slight movement.
