engine running hot

i have a 2003 ford f-350 6.0L diesel. engine cooling fan will not turn on till 230F. there are no codes stored or active in the computer system. howe ever, in the data stream there are two coolant temperature sensor readings, one will read 192 F and the other one will read 155 F. when the sensor is unplugged both read -40 F. i tried replacing the sensor at the thermostat housing. but the fan still won't go, but when i unplugg the sensor the fan will run. is my egr cooler screwed? (read some previous threads)
truck is equiped with a banks palm pilot chip, airaid air intake, 4" mbrp exhaust
