Primary cooling fan sensor Sign In

So I know my problem. My cooling fan was not working and I was getting an overheating issue lately due to it not working. I troubleshooting it with the paper clip to further confirm it.
I pulled out of cooling fan primary fan sensor, by the way this is a 1991 corvette L98. The sensor was burnt I believe on the cooling fan side of the sensor but I’m sure the entire sensor is burnt out, here’s a picture:

I guess the problem is I don’t know how to replace that. I would figure the relay is good I put a flashlight up to it and it seems to be fine. I can’t find this sensor anywhere for my l98 it just seems they sell the relay and even if I did get the sensor it seems I would have to actually wire it myself which I’m not sure how to do.
Any tips? Advice? Thanks

That pigtail end is toast! Does that lower left slot shown allow any current thru it or even continuity? Bet not,

I don't know what sensor you are talking about. The picture appears to be a relay connector.
