That is the temp sender for everything in the car.

There is no thermo fan switch as such. The ECU reads the engine temperature using that sensor in the lower thermostat housing, and uses that along with other information such as the speed of the car and if the aircon is running to switch fans on/off. The temperature guage is also set from this.

Earlier e-series models had up to 3 temperature sensors jammed in the lower thermostat housing providing information to the ECU, guage and climate control.

Went back to repco and said WTF. Dude would not serve me. Oh well. Money back and went else where to get it. all done now.
