2005 Toyota Avalon over heating

I changed thermostat and radiator. Car ran fine for few weeks. Then it died at red light. Temp gauge was good. Opened hood to find fan broken. Car turns over but won't start. Is there a sensor or relay

Fan broken as in? Broken or won't start?
Your temp gauge is not working. Car with non functional fan WILL overheat and you said - "temp gauge was good". My 1st guess is temp sending unit is not working, Loose contact or something as likely you had to remove it for radiator replacement. That prevented fan from starting.
Just to add. So if temp sensor is not working, computer may prevent engine from starting. It's safety feature.
