bridge the switch out and see if the fan comes on if it does then the switch will be at fault no doubt.,

As said check the fan switch is ok by bridging contacts in connector, if it's working then stop worrying, 100C is nothing to worry about, can easily go to 115C without problem, and don't relay on the gauge to be accurate, they're not.
