Have you had this scanned for codes?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
No its a brand new problem. My fan stayed on after i shut off my car yesterday. It has been doing it ever since. I've noticed my temp gauge flux up and down very rapidly and very often. i even get an over heating/shut of A/C but i know i cant possibly be overheated I assume it is a sensor issue

Take it to any auto parts store and ask for a free scan. If the coolant temp sensor is the problem it will usually set a code.

The coolant temp sensor is threated into the side of the cylinder head.
