On the drivers side of the vehicle under the hood their is a fuse panel, consists of a 30amp fuse and a cooling fan relay both are cheap and i would start with replacing those first. If that doesnt work, you can power your fan directly to see if it comes on and the fan motors not burnt out but see if the fuse or relay works first.

I have a 2000 Chevy Monte Carlo. Went to emissions test and failed due to code P0480. Mechanic said it was something electrical and is charging $500 to fix. Is that the average cost?

P0480 indicates a problem with the cooling fan control circuit. Without knowing what the exact problem is it would be impossible to say if $500 is an appropriate charge.

Shows a code of P0480, what is this code for thanks

this is a code for the cooling fan. possible causes are a faulty cooling fan relay. shorted or open fan wiring. defective fan motor or internal problem with pcm.It will be hard to test without having a scan tool capable of commanding the relay on so you can check to see if fan is receiving power or relay is closing. to eliminate fan crank car and turn a/c on fan should come on with a/c. if it does then fan is good.the fan relay is in the power distribution box located by the battery. this would be an inexpensive part to try.

I have a service engine soon light and the code that appeared when check is 1481, do you know what this means?

Service Engine Soon (SES) or Check Engine Light On, DTC P0480, P0526/P1481/P1484 Set (Replace Engine Cooling Fan Wiring Harness) #05-06-02-012B - (10/19/2006)

Models:2004-2006 Buick Rainier
2002-2006 Chevrolet TrailBlazer, TrailBlazer EXT
2002-2006 GMC Envoy, Envoy XL, 

Some customers may comment that the Service Engine Soon (SES) or Check Engine light is illuminated. This condition may be intermittent and upon investigation, the technician may find either DTC P0480, P0526, P1481 or P1484 set.

This condition may be caused by the cooling fan harness chaffing against the plastic guide it routes through. This contact may damage the insulation of the wires enclosed in that harness.

Replace the wire harness: 
Part Number 89024920 Description Harness Assembly, Engine Cooling Fan Wiring

Good luck and keep me posed.
