How do you get the light bulb under the reverse light off

I have recently began working on the car myself since I spent close to 2k on fixing the car already. I have replaced both ECT and CHT sensors, bought a new fan and still it does not come on by itself. Could it be a fuse in the control module box, or the sensor connectors? If it's the fuse, where do I put the fuse because I don't have the owners manual and I can't find it online. Thank you for your help in advance.

As soon as it reaches normal temp. It cuts out and won't start until it cools down
-new radiator, coil packs,

So I got my Thunderbird a little while ago. I noticed it has a delayed starting problem.
You will hear the fuel pump turn on along with the fan. The fuel pump can turn off but until one of the fan turns off the car will not start.
As the weather gets colder it takes longer to start. Such as this summer at about 70 degrees it only took 5 minutes. If I had turned it on earlier that day it only took 2-3.
However now that the temperature has dropped to 17 degrees it takes forever to start. For example I went out this morning and turned the key on expecting my normal 30-45 minute delay. However after an 1 hour and 15 minutes the fan still did not turn off so I could not start the car. I ended up turning the key off and finding another ride because of my car.
What could be wrong with my car? I was told it might be something like a fan relay box.
Also I have replaced all of the fuel line items with new ones. Such as the fuel pressure regulator, fuel filter, fuel pump, etc. with brand new parts and it is holding pressure.

New door pins internal lights turn off when pins are manually pressed

where can I buy revised ignition coils for 2005 tbird 50th anniversart

it's like something is getting hot and kicking off

Spark plugs been changed. Fuel injectors cleaned. Using premium gas. Tried sea foam.

Where on the manifold is the sensor located?

My battery died a while back, ever since I have problems with the way it runs. The computer was reset when the battery was jumped.at first it was the check engine light then the wrench. I went to my mechanic he set the computer codes that were off it runs good for a while then I go start it and it runs likes I said above.my husband thinks its the coils and plugs this car has 44.700 miles on it.I think its something to do with emissions.

While driving down road, rpms start to drop, car feels bogged down but doesn't die. Radiator is super hot. Any ideas what this could be. Intake Manifold has already been checked out.
