Welcome to Just answer, The cooling fan is ultimately controlled by the engine control unit, this receives a temperature signal from the ECT sensor at the rear of the cylinder head, the ECU then sends a signal to the fan relay which switches the fan on and off , there is a picture of the ECT sensor below No.2

I hope this helps, best regards, Vauxdoc.
