Symptomology not Electrical

You're running an almost 20 year old cooling system
OF UNKNOWN UPKEEP HISTORY
Do you have a Known Good Thermostat (Tested in boiling water on the stove?)
If you do not see cooler operating temps AFTER cleaning the outside of the
Radiator and the Condenser AND "SHOOTING" the Radiator at Operating temps
with an Infrared Thermometer [You're looking for COOL spots in the Radiator
IF there's a cool spot in front of the Viscous fan Clutch IT WILL NEVER ENGAGE!],It MAY be time for a new Radiator.

I'll give you a Big Hint...NOT (Normal Operating Temps) run around 80-85C
(Not in Death Valley,Nor on a Five Mile Steep Upgrade with Ambient @ 100+ F)

YOU HAVE A PHYSICAL PROBLEM IN YOUR COOLING SYSTEM!
It Ain't Electrical !
