Was it doing the same thing with the old thermostat?

Automotive Expert
The cooling fans do not work at all?

They came on an city back off
Automotive Expert
It sounds like they are getting power but not staying on, i'd focus on the fan motors, it's going to overheat without the fans working.

I was driving home from work an my ac went out an started running hot
Automotive Expert
In my opinion it still sounds like the fan as the ac condenser sits in front of the radiator the lack of that fan turning would effect both

But with the ac condenser stop the radiator fan from work when the car is hot
Automotive Expert
The condenser doesn't run, it just sits in front of radiator relying on the same airflow from the fan.a

I'm saying how does it affects the fan an ac
Automotive Expert
Did the ac go out or the ac fan quit blowing?

I was driving home from work, the car started running hot then the ac stopped working
Automotive Expert
AC fan also quit or was just blowing hot air.

Both fansAc an radiator fan

In that case i would look at the relays and if its not that the pcm is likely the cause, testing one out is hard to do with the older OBD1 tools being harder to find anyone that still has them.

What's the PCM
Automotive Expert
The computer brain of the car, typically when 2 things fail at the same time that are on there own relays then i'd look at the PCM

Automotive Expert
The hardest part is finding someone with OBD1 equipment as a PCM in a quick search looks to be fairly cheap, just needs to be diagnosed.
