Hi: I use to do a lot of auto mechanics ,not too much anymore, but it sounds like your mercury switch isn't working. there is a switch that works off of the hot water on some vehicles that basically trips the fan on and off. Some people bypass this switch, makes the fan come on and stay on as soon as the key is turned on from the ignition, I wouldn't advise it but if you do the bypass and the fan works then you know where your problem lies. I think they call it a thermatically switch control. Just trace your fan electric wires from the fan to there destination.
Hope this helps. You could have saved some money on relays had you done this first;

if the fans are not broken, here is a way to check them--- disconnect fans at wiring connection, then run a wire from positive on fans to positive post on battery,then run other side to ground if nessesary. if the fans are ok they will turn on. if not the coolant temp sensor is bad. or a short in wiring.

SOURCE: 1997 cadillac deville coolant fan

with the a/c on, the fan should be on. crank it up, turn a/c on, now take a hammer and gently tap on the coolant fan, if it comes on, or attempt to spin, its bad.

Need to find location of coolant fan relay and sensor for 1990 pontiac sunbird ?


if your rad coolant fan is not working check the fan itself as this is a common problem on these cars. disconnect the plug from the fan motor and run jumper wires directly from battery to the fan motor terminals. if the fan doesn`t run replace fan motor. if it does run the check fuses then fan relay. the relay is in the relay box, the coolant sensor for the fan motor is in the head that goes into a coolant passage that has a 2 wire connector.

Check for power and ground directly at the cooling fan connector (the red and black wires). You can either jumper across the relay or with the key on, disconnect the coolant temperature sensor (2 wire connector near the thermostat housing, usually yellow and black). This should override the computer and energize the fans. If you have good power and ground at the fan connector, then the fan motor is no good. If you don't have power and ground there, it's a wiring issue from the relay, the relay itself, or no power to the cooling fan circuit (fuse).

There are three fuses and two relays for your coolant fan. They should all be in your underhood fuse box. They may not be marked "coolant fan", so check them all, (2) 60 amp , (1) 20 amp, (1) 15 amp. If all the fuses are good, you may have a bad fan switch (temp sensor). It tells the fan when to turn on, follow the wire from the fan motor to find it.
