Somewhere on the engine is a sensor (maybe 2) and somewhere else is a relay (maybe 2) for the fan.
Suspect the sensor, which most usually screws into the engine block, (since it is engine temperature controlled), remembering there is coolant/antifreeze in the engine which will leak out when you unscrew the sensor.
The relay or relays usually found under the hood, could also be the problem.
Myself, I'd buy them off e-bay because they are usually cheaper.
Driver's door handle has small stiff wire levers and controls, connected from the handle to the door latch inside, which will sometimes have nylon or plastic bushings at the ends, which will over time disintegrate. You'll need to pull the driver's door panel off to diagnose that.

SOURCE: My driver side door handle is broken on a 2003 VW.

remove the inside door trim and remove the weatherproof plastic that covers the holes in the door behind the trim.
You should have access to the door handle nuts and rods to remove the handle.
re assemble in the reverse order and make sure the weatherproof plastic is put back on and sealed or your door may let water enter the car via the door

Driver side window wont go up?

If the other windows work, then it has to be in the driver's switch button, or the driver's window motor has given out, or a wire has come loose from the switch to the motor inside the door. Usually you have to take the door panel off to investigate. Can the switch and it's electrical connector be removed from the door panel? If you can get to that, you can use a couple of jumper wires and test the motor for operation...or noise-if it groans or buzzes or clicks a lot, you will have to remove the door panel to get to it for repair or replacement.
Has a liquid spilled on the driver's switch? That can disable the switch.
The jumper wires (2 paper clips work well) work thus: at the connector you will have a power wire (hot with key on) and a ground wire for the power windows. jumper those two to the two terminals for the driver's window motor, with key on. The window should go one way -either up or down- if you reverse the jumper wires the motor and the window should go the other way. if all works well like that, the motor, window regulator assembly, and the wiring is good, problem is in the switch.

+my honda civic 1998 radiator cooling fan not turning.

This gets complicated. First of all don't let the engine
overheat. There are two complete fan circuits, one for
the air conditioning and one for the radiator. To test
the fan, remove the electrical connector at the fan and
use jumper wires to connect the fan motor directly to
the battery. If it doesn't run, replace it, if it does operate
try the fuses located in the engine compartment or
under the driver's side dash. The fuse diagram should
be on the fuse box cover. Other than that you may need
professional help.

Replaced fan relay but now lowing fuses

This might be a ground wire loose somewhere. Or a hot wire exposed to a ground. Electrical problems are the worst part of a car to fix. Try to replace just the wires or the entire harness to the fan relay.
Hope this helps.

Door Latch will not engage

It sounds like one of the door handles is not returning alowing the pawl to latch, Lubricate, the latch assembly, making sure you work the inner and outer door handles. Also roll the window all the way down, and look down through the slot to see if you can get some spray lube at the back side of the latch, if so lube again while working the handles. Spray the pivot pionts and sliders on the handles.

Hope this is of some help.

Driver Side Mirror

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door
