My 98 Camry overheats on idle. I replaced the radiator. I may have messed up one of the connectors for the fan. It works when I put the AC on

fan must work with AC turned off when it gets hot. Check the wiring on the temp sensor on the engine FIRST

Ok is that the one where you have to unscrew it out of the old radiator and into the new one?

Because when removing it I used the pliers to move it and moved it not the screw first. Is it possible I ruined the ability for the fan to come on when its supposed to cause of that

I think that I messed up the fan connectors. It's that piece that has a metal part on the end that goes into the radiator with a connection for the fan on the other side
