Question about 2003 Buick Park Avenue
2003 park Ave starting to run warm after 176,000 miles. bought new, so the 203 to 217 degree temp is not typical. no sign of bad water pump, but i think rad fans not working. fuses are good. how to confirm relays working??
The simplest way to check a relay is to swap it with a relay from somthing that you know works (eg. starter, or horn) if that item still works after the swap then the relay is good.

Trouble Code: P1491 You PCM does not sense current to radiator fan when it turns it on. Is the fan coming on or not? Usually not when you have this code. Problem can be with the fuse, relay, wiring or fan itself. First check the fuse. If good, next try swapping the relay with another one in the engine compartment relay box, such as the horn relay.
Let the car warm up and see if the fan will come on. If yes, get a new relay. If not, either use a test light to see if there is voltage at the fan connector when the engine is on and hot, or else test the fan motor by hotwiring it to the battery. If none of this works, please get back to me for how to troubleshoot the wiring.
