1999 Pontiac GrandAM 3.4L - Cooling fans don't come on when coolant temp is around 150 degrees, also don't come on with a/c on. A/C doesn't produce cold air. Removed connector from coolant temp sensor and cooling fans come on. Opened cap on relays for hi and low and tripped relay and the fans come on. What could be a probable cause?

if the a/c compressor does not come on the fans won't either.you have a bad coolant temp sensor
I'm sorry I meant to mention I just replaced the coolant temp sensor and the fans still don't come on.do I need to disconnect the battery for a length of time?
the engine should be above 190 degrees to turn on the fans
Temp was about 250 according to gauge on dash.
So if I get to step 7 and the test light illuminates it says go to engine controls for further diagnostics. Does this mean it is the ecm?
Would I need a specific scan tool to do this with?
the testing in the flow chart is what a mechanic at a dealership would use.a special scan tool is required.
Ok. Just checking. I appreciate the info.
Ok I guess just one last thing, do you have something showing all of the DTC'S? and if not can if be found on the net?
