Look on your radiator and you should find a "bolt" head, about 20mm, with 2 wires plugged into it.
This is the fan thermo switch, with the ignition on, but engine not running, connect these wires together by shorting a screwdriver accross and the fan should cut in.
If the fan works, then the switch needs replacing, just unscrew and replace.
If the fan doesn't work then there is a problem further into the circuit, fuse, relay or broken wire.

Ck engine light problem on 2001 Impala

Well the code is for the circuit - the computer commands the relay to turn the fan on and it doesn't happen.
The computer provides the ground for the relay.
If you have replaced the relay and the fan and the fuse still blows, I would look for a problem in the harness between the fuse box and the fan, including the ground circuit for the fan.
The fuse for the cooling fan is usually a 30amp marked "cooling fan" in the fuse box in the engine compartment.
Do you know what the 25amp fuse that is blowing is for ?

Hi i just brought a buick century 1998 and well is overheating and i dont know what it could be?

It could be many things. Low coolant, fault thermostat, a blockage in the system, worn or broken water pump impeller, slipping belt on water pump pulley, the cooling fans may not be operating (this could be a faulty temp sensor, fuse, relay, wiring or the fan motor itself).

Im having problems withmy wipers they dont start i think it can be some kind of relay problem but dont know where

use a test lamp to check for power ..check to ensure fuse is not loose or blown and possibly if it s intermittent wipers the lever could be bad if you have power there to the wiper motor and the fuse is good most likely the wiper lever is gone you will need to replace it they are best from a junkyard about 50.00 or 195.00 from a dealer plus installation fees but ck for power 1 st
