Nick, It sounds like the otterstat isn't turning on. You may need to bleed
the air out of the lines and put on a new otterstat.

I had my car in Charlotte last summer and found out
one day in traffic that my fans were not working. I
had apparently driven all the way from Cincinnati to
Charlotte fine, yet one day I was driving on I-77
and was sitting in 100 degree weather on an exit
ramp for about 25 minutes. I obviously noticed that
the fans were not clicking on. I got pretty worried,
at the hottest point, the temperature gauge was
reading about 240 degrees. Not a moment too soon I
was able to get off the exit ramp and drive down the
road. I finally hit some country roads and once I
hit 40-45 the car came all the way back down into
the white between the second and third mark.

In the next few days I ran a line directly from the
battery, to a fuse, to a switch, then spliced and
into the fans so that I could control the fans. I
still do not know why exactly they were not working.
I have special t autos black box and am pretty sure
it is installed correctly, at least according to the
picture. I recently plugged everything back in and
tightened and cleaned all the connections and with
the otterstat jumped, the fans turn immediately
about half the time. The other half of the times,
the black box requires some sort of jolt in order to
click over, whether it be me tapping on the side
(which is what usually happens) or me hitting a
pothole. Right now I just leave the box sticking
outside the relay compartment so I can tap it if
necessary.

I'll probably replace the fans some time in the near
future so I can eliminate these kinds of problems.
