Do the fans come on when you turn on the air conditioner. I do believe the temp switch for the fan is on the passenger side of the engine above the starter.

If there are no other components on the circuit, then most likely cause is the wire is shorting out someplace. The wire insulation may be damaged at somepoint, and it is touching a grounded point in the circuit.

One of the fans is for your radiator and the other is your condenser fan (for your air conditioning). The condenser fan starts at a higher temp than your radiator fan.
To test the condenser fan (the one on the right side, facing the car) unplug the electrical connector at the motor and use jumper wires to connect the fan directly to the battery. If it runs, check the fuses (engine compartment far upper left as you face the car), then the relay (right front corner of the engine compartment as you face it). The radiator fan typically engages between 189 and 199 degrees, but the condenser fan typically engages between 217 and 232 degrees. In other words they don't necessarily run at the same time. First of all, try letting the car run until the engine is warm WITH the ac running. If the condenser far does not run, then go through the checking procedure.
I hope this gets you started on a fix.

there is a switch in the engine intake or cylinder head that controls the cooling fans. The switch is the one with only 1 green wire hooked to it. Turn the key to run, with the engine stopped pull this wire off and touch it to a ground( cylinder head, engine block) and the fan should start, if not look at the fuse, if it does you need to replace the switch.
