Pontiac montana 2003 two radiator fans does not move when directly connect to positive and negative end of battery while there was a current between two ends of fans. Is it means fans does not work?

At one fan, one wiring connector, if voltage on both wires, there is no ground for whatever reason. If that is what your asking?
Note the diagram, the top color wire is voltage, the bottom is ground, regardless of color.
If you hooked up the jumper wires to one fan properly, for voltage and ground, it should run. Just my opinion.

We replaced the fan relay. And the fan still does not come on. Is there a way to reset the Jeeps?

check the radiator fan by using the jumper wires from the battery to the electrical connection on the radiator fan to wire it directly to the battery. If it fails to operate the fan is bad.

My 1996 grand prix started to register cooling temp of over 210 degrees. the motor doesn't seem to be overheating. I've replaced the water pump, thermostat, temp sensor, both fan relays, low coolant...

I would first check the cooling fans. To do this unplug the fans and use two jumper wires to hook them direct to the battery and test. If the fans are working I would have the radiator cleaned or purchase a new one. To clean the radiator take it to a professional and tell them you would like it rodded out. You can purchase a new one for about twice the price. I wouldn't worry about the low coolent sensor. By it being on it will not send a message that your vehicle is overheating. If you have changed everything that you say you have and the fans work and radiator is cleaned you may have a blown head gasket. If you have a blown head gasket you would see steam comming out of the tail pipes or water in the oil on dip-stick. Good luck.

Heater will not blow air

Hook direct power to the fan and see if it works, if so, fan likely okay.

The problem is my radiator fan wont come on

There are 3 possibilties that can cause your problem.
1. The thermoswitch that is mounted in the radiator that activates the fan when a high temp is received. It will look like this:

Radiator Fan dont kick on

The fan will kick in when the temp reaches 90 degrees celcius. It could also be a bad fan or a bad fan relay

2003 Pontiac Grand Prix SE 6 Cyl - Cooling Fan Not Operating

the fan motor could just be bad, you can test this by removing the fan and connecting a wire to each terminal and to a battery. the wires hooked up one way will spin the fan and the other way will spin the fan backwards so you cant hook it up wrong. I hope that helps you out!
