Q: Overheats on 1997 Ford Contour

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Cooling fan will not run unless I jumper it? Replaced sensors, still nothing. Was told it was the computer? Is there a test for that portion of the computer? Hate to buy one and have the fan still not work. I can keep the engine cool by running the AC and the other fan works fine.

Wiring and relays are issues with these fans. There are two relays - high speed and low speed. One or both could be failed, and you may have wiring connector melting issues. Not uncommon for this vehicle.
