 Sometimes it works fine, sometimes it's just dead (pegged at bottom). I sort
 of assumed this was the multi-function temp sender going bad. However, the
 fan still comes on at appropriate times. What tells the fan the engine is
 hot and needs to go on, if not the temp sender?

 There is a thermoswitch in the radiator that controls the fan speed.  See:
 The thermostat controls the temp in the head/engine while heating up, and if
 the radiator system works correctly, thereafter.
