2000 Chevy Cavalier sensor for radiator fan

I have to replace the thermostat for the radiator cooling fan but I cannot find where it is located on the engine. I found piece that looks very similar, however it has a three holed socket where as the piece I have is a two pronged plug. The dealer has assured me that there is only the two pronged piece for my engine. I found what I think to be the old thermostat screwed into a pipe coming out of the radiator on the left side of the radiator near some hoses. Does anyone have any info they can give me on this problem? Thanks.

There is no sensor specifically for the cooling fan. There is a temp sensor for the computer to do many things beside operate the fan. The computer determines when the fan comes on and goes off. What are you trying to fix. That fan isn't designed to come on until over at least 225deg.
