Honda Civic '98 Radiator Fan Not Coming On Sign In

I have a '98 Honda Civic EX and the other day it started to overheat. The radiator fan is not coming on. With alligator clips I connected the radiator fan directly to the battery and it started immediately so I know its good.

Next, I checked the Cooling Fan Relay switch/fuse and it is good.

After watching some Youtube videos I thought it was the Radiator Coolant Fan Switch so I bought one from (pictured here link deleted .......... not allowed) and replaced it. That didn't work.

Now I'm thinking it is the Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor. However, I can't seem to be able to find where that is to replace it.

Can anyone help tell me where it is or do you think it is something else?

Does the fan come on when the AC is turned on?

No, the fan does not come on when the AC is turned on.

There are 2 fuses you need to look at.

fuse #57 (20amp) in the underhood fuse box

fuse #17 (7.5amp) in the under dash fuse box

If those fuses are good, go to the relay which is in the underhood fuse box.
