    So I kind of got lost at the end there of what you were saying - so what happened with the fan? It wasn't on but then came on?

    Is it common for both to go out at the same time?

    I think it was just a coincidence. You can use an ohm meter and test the sensor. I bet if you touch each of the leads to a separate terminal on the sensor, it'll show "OL".

    There are two sensors on the crossover coolant tube. One is for the temp gauge inside the car and other is for PCM. If you are not seeing correct temp in vehicle its the sensor with r/w y/r wires according to schematic I have. If the fan is not coming on it could be other sensor that sends signal to PCM or the CCRM could be going bad. The CCRM has all the relays for AC clutch plus low speed and high speed fan control. If you google CCRM you will find many troubleshooting guides.

    Good thing as CCRM is expensive.
