Location of radiator fan fuse or fuse link ? Fan doesn't work.

Both should be a fuse under the hood, or under the dash, if there is a fuse link, it will be along the hot side of the wiring on the fan leading into source of power.

Cooling fan wont come on car running at a high tem

You could verify fan motor is good by using jumper wires from battery to the fan motor. If the motor is good, you will probably need a wiring diagram and at least a test light to start checking the fan circuit. There will be a cooling fan relay that when signaled, will send power direct to the fan. The signaler to relay to turn the fan on may be the engine computer when the coolant temperature sensor tells it engine is getting too hot- or it may be signaled on by a fan temperature switch mounted in the radiator. When coolant reaches a set temperature the switch closes contact, and the relay is energized to pass power on to the fan. One could pull the relay and with key on, use test light to probe the terminals where relay plugs in. The power feed for the fan should light up the test light on one of the terminals, verifying power is still available to turn the fan on. Next one could check if the signaler to turn the relay on is working.
See? So you do need a wiring diagram to see how the circuit is wired. But the first step is to verify fan motor is good. Good luck, Nigel.

I have a 93 honda accord . the cooling fan stopped working . i tested the fans to the battery an only one worked . if one does work will it make the other one not come on?

No, they work independently. The passenger side fan is the AC fan, and should be on anytime the AC is used. The driver's side fan is the radiator cooling fan, and is turned on by a temperature switch or by the computer when it deems the fan should be on.
If you jumpered them from the battery and one would not turn on, it would seem the fan motor is bad.

My radiator fan is not working and I cannot find any of the relay fuses I have seen in other cars for this type of problem.

Follow the wiring back from the fan motor, the relay is often found at about the height of the bottom of the radiator on the inner fender. Check that connection is clean and free of corrosion. Check that the fan works by taking two trailing wires directly from the bettery terminals and connecting then to the fan motor directly. Use a voltmeter and check the voltage at the relay when engine is cold and shortly after the radiator top hose from the engine becomes hot (the coolant sensor should have signalled for the fan to switch on at this time). No voltage indicates a break in the circuit or faulty sensor. Voltage but no fan indicates faulty relay

Radiator cooling fan 30 amp. fuse keep blowing

The fan may run with jumper wires but if it''s blowing the 30 Amp Maxifuse it's needs a new or used fan motor.It's pulling too many amps.I have almost never seen a fan relay concern.Only other thing you may check is the wiring down near the fan shoud I have seen the 2 wires get loose from the conduit & melt onto exhaust manifold.Hope tHis Helps

405 GLD Cooling Fan

Hmm, perhaps it is time for a noisy solution.

Get a 30 amp relay and wire the fans via directly to the battery via that relay. Of course, disconnecting them from where that are wired into the vehicle now.

For the fan control to the relay, wire something that is (+) when the ignition is in the 'run' position.

This, of course, is the quick n dirty fix. While this will work, you have an always on, noisy solution, and it will take quite some time for your vehicle to warm up in the winter time.

Just an idea should you not be able to correct the factory wiring, of which I have no idea.

Best of luck,
