Does anyone make a electric fan controller that works on temp switch, timer and can be overridden?

I just use a temp sensor the turns on at the temp I want, then wire it up with the proper relays and fuses.

Use a normal temp sensor/controller but use the controller output to turn on a relay (use relay to turn fans on) then wire a switch in parallel to the relay so you can manually turn it on. Should be a sensor/controller in the aftermarket, we put one in a Dodge V10 (along with elec fans) at Subaru when I was there.

If you had a schematic of the controller, you may be able to bypass the relay and just wire the switch to the sensor input.
