hot hot hot

1989 camry V6 LE, 4-door manual.

car is overheating when in stop and go (highway is fine).

The fans do not turn on when the engine gets hot (but they do actually work fine). How do I check what the electrical problem is? I assume that the problem is either temp switch or fan relay (fuse is fine).

I have a haynes manual but the wiring diagram for the radiator fan does not show everything, is there a better manual or place on the net to purchase wiring diagrams?

What is the downside to just having the fans turn on every time the car is turned on (if temporarily I wire it like that)?

The fans must work right, or it will overheat.

The Haynes manual is a table prop for anything but the basics....try Autolibrary that I have below, but the real book to buy is the factory OEM Toyota manual.

Bring power to the fans from the battery. If the work, the fans are fine, the switch or wiring for them is bad.
