I'm not familiar with your exact car but a friend of mine had a similar problem the solution was to replace the electrical relay for the cooling fan. Consult a wiring diagram to see if there is a relay (there should be) and replace it.

The other possibility off the top of my head is a short in the wiring somewhere. Power the fan directly and ensure it works fine. If the fan is OK then the problem is likely in the wiring or wire connectors somewhere. That should help narrow down the problem. Good luck!
