Where is the control sensor located on my 2006 ford

Customer Question
Where is the control...

Where is the control sensor located on my 2006 ford freestyle all other parts check out ok fan-relays-fuse but it will not kick on but last night when I was done working on it and ready to roll it over a hill I plugged the fan wire back in walked away and it started running and then would not shut off so what i'm thinking it has to be that sensor.

Mechanic's Assistant: Most vehicles have two fuse panels. Do you know what they look like?

Yep

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Freestyle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have checked the fans fuses and relays and all are good

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No that's all

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
