After run sensor connectors are standard push-on/pull-off spades, just pull
straight down perhaps when you can use fingers instead of pliers. If pump
runs/fan comes on when you touch the wires together, the sensor is the weak
link - but as I have said before a time or three, unless I shut my car off
with the fan running and it's hot out, the after run won't turn on; it's
been this way since I  replaced the sensor when it wouldn't turn on at all.

Fan thermoswitch is at bottom of radiator, under the hose connections on
the side towards the engine. Resistor pack is the blue metal plate on
"frame rail" underneath radiator.

Do you have a Bentley manual yet? Sounds like you need one :)
