I was recently looking into my 2002 Toyota Echo's cooling system and noticed that my radiator fan doesn't turn on. I can't recall ever hearing it turn-on since I bought the car. I live in an area where it's cold and rainy most of the year, but once in a while it get hot during the summer, that's why I decided to look into it in the first place (especially since it overheats during those hot summer times). Anyways, after doing a bit of research and testing, I figured out that it was my radiator cooling fan switch. After much searching I failed to find the radiator cooling fan switch. However, through my search, I noticed that my radiator fan had a dangling housed wire that wasn't connected to anything. I was pretty convinced that the wire belong to the radiator cooling fan switch sensor, so I jumped it with a paper clip and the radiator fan came on while my car was on and turned off when I shut the car off.

However, I have been searching for the radiator cooling fan switch around the radiator, thermostat housing, radiator hoses, and have yet to find the radiator cooling fan switch to connect the wire to. So now I'm convinced that my car is not equipped with one. So now I’m on here looking for any suggestions. Is there a part that my car is missing, that I can buy to install a radiator cooling fan switch? Or where should I look for the radiator cooling fan switch?

My car is stock, and nothing has ever been done to it to customize it in anyway since I bought it.


I looked for helpful information on other sites, but failed to find it. As my car doesn't have any electric (ECT or cooling fan switch) connections sticking out of my radiator, and I can't find a radiator (for sale) that does.

Any helpful suggestions will be appreciated. Thank you
