Check your fuse first....

There is a fuse panel under the dash right by the parking brake, engine compartment next to the battery. The lid of the fuse panel will tell you which one is the fuse for the fans.

Next, check for frayed wires.....

Car is overheating

First make sure the cooling system is full. This might require letting it cool and filling it more than once though the main raditor cap. Then it needs looked over for leaks. If it won;t stay full it'll overheat. The hose from the recovery tank to the raditor connection at the cap is a problem spot and it the raditor can't **** the coolant from the tank back into the raditor the engine will soon get low. If these things are alright then you neeed to watch it heat up, and see what's happening. The engine should worm up and as it does the upper raditor hose will warm and but hot but not right away. The side of the raditor should start to warm up soon after that, Touching the raditor it should warm up evenly from top to bottom if it doesn;t it's clogged. If the hose and engine get hot and the pressure inside the hoses rise but the raditor says cool then the therostate is sticking and needs to be changed. If the whole radidor gets hot till everythings too hot and the fan does'nt come on then you need to test the fan and it's fuses and connections. The cooling fan will be comanded on if you unplug the coolant temperture senser that's pluged into the side of the therosate hoseing as it's where the upper hose connects to the engine. If the fan seems to be coming on and hot air is coming off the back of the fan and it's still getting too hot and you've decided that the whole radidor is getting evenly hot then the engine may have an issue. Exhaust clogged up ( cat canvertor, muffer bent pipes) The check engine light might be on and the reasons it's on need to be examinded.

1997 Grand Caravan overheating.

I would be a bit leary of hard wiring the fan. That may cause some other problems, such as the motor not getting warm enough in the winter time. I would get another opinion on the price they are giving you. I can see needing to replace the relay, but what is wrong with the wiring, unless the wiring is burnt up, you should be able to just replace the relay.

Overheating while car is not moving for 25 minutes

Sounds like your fan is not working. Moving provides the airflow rgough the radiator needed for cooling.. Over 35 miles per hour, the fan looses its role in the cooling systemto the forced air caused by your speed. Have your fan function ck'd Good luck.
