Coolant temp. sensor.

Theres 2 of them, one for the instrument cluster and one for the ECU. The second later one is what you need; since it triggers the ECU to turn on the fan.

I would remove, and test for resistance w/ a multimeter. In the mean time, I would jump the fans and run them on via a switch or always constant on; until you recieve your new temp sensor.

I would also do a leak down test/compression test to see if the engine is in good health; as well as a hydrocarbon test as well as look in the coolant overflow tank for bubbles. If you see any bubbles, the headgasket is seeping.
