I think you nailed it with the temp sensor. Ordering a new one:

Wires were probably touching while breaking and turning because there was no clicking when stationary. Thanks for your help!
Thanks for the advice. The solenoid connections are tight and I replaced that in the fall with a new one. I'll look up again how to check if it's functioning properly. Is there a possibility that a failing alternator could cause the solenoid to freak out? Sounds like I should poke around...

I see your point regarding the modifications. I bought this truck to learn basic auto mechanics, and I'm...
