Question Help! Radiator fan Issue

I know this issue has been beat to death but the cooling system has me stumped. Its an 01 PT, N/A 2.4, just rebuilt the engine last year.
After rebuilding the engine it drove and ran great for a couple months with no issues. Took it into a shop to charge the a/c and besides the broken connector on the pump it ran great and blew cold. Next day it overheated! So I changed the fan motor (high side showed open with DMM), flushed radiator, changed thermostat again, because I heard the fail safe from Autozone was crap, and after looking at the fan connector on the harness side, I noticed the ground was melted. I soldered a new connector on and the fan kicked on like it should. Few days later it was boiling again and temp was high. The fan seems to fail intermittently and I'm starting to run out of ideas. What am I missing here? Does this sound like the temp sensor on the thermostat housing?

Just me but I'm still thinking connector. Or sticking relay. Although I don't see many relays fail. The sensor is cheep change it. Good luck.
