SOURCE: Cooling Fans Wont Kick In
Make sure the fans are not locked up. They are after all just electric motors. If they spin freely by hand, that's a good start.
Otherwise, there will be two wires coming off the fan. Trace these wires and unplug them.
Taking these two wires, take a car or lawn mower battery (12V) and touch one of the wires to positive, and one to negative. It doesn't matter which. If the fan comes on, then the fan is good. If you reverse polarity then the fan only spins backwards.
If it doesn't come on, then it's a bad fan.
If it does, then it probably your temp sensor. The fans should come on automatically when you cut on your air conditioning.
