have you had the engine light scanned you can stop by any parts store they will do it for free

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i had the engine light scanned but it shows a child seat sensor defect. so it wasn't helpful.
after i notice that the engine fan is not working, which will be the possible causes for it to stop? i have plugged a battery straight to the fan motor it works. it must be a sensor in somewhere.....
Expert:  cloe0626 replied 1 year ago.

the engine temp sensor more then likely has went out

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
