It could be a fan relay.

I have not had this problem on my Saturn, but I had a 90' Plymouth Acclaim which had the same problem. I would first check all of the fuses, but then try replacing the relay. There is no need to buy new either. If you have a good junk yard you can get one real cheap that should last a long time. Typically they will let you take as much extra wire as you need as well so it is easy to replace.

92 saturn sl2 1.9 liter engine have problem with cooling fans not coming on. Relaced relay in fuse box , jumped wire to fan motor, fan motors works. took wire off cooling sensor and jumped . fan still...

I had this same problem and put a switch inside the car to turn on the relay remotely. But I believe it is the connection at the temperature sensor near the top of the transmission. My wires were stretched at this sensor from the factory. I have not tried to replace it rework it but if you used an ohm meter you could determine if the wires and or sensor have continuity. This is not the same sensor that runs the temperature gauge in the dash.

Should my 1998 Saturn sl2 cooling fan come on when the car ignition is turned to acc

no it should not run in accessory position and the reason i suspect is a contact breakage inside the ignition switch which is on the end of then steering lock .so long as it stops when you take the key out leave well alone to the switch packs up completely as it could last for years and you might have bought a newer car before it goes completely

98 Saturn SL AC/cooling fan will NOT work

Do not let this car over heat a blown head gasket will ensue. Locate and replace the fan relay, if that doesn't fix the problem unplug fan and use jumper wires to ground the plug then feed power to the positive side of plug to check fan, if that doesn't work replace the coolant temperature sensor located somewhere near the intake manifold or thermostat housing area.

chances are the motor or your heater went out try kicking the housing or tapping on the motor and listen if it makes any nois or even starts going make sure you have the fan turned on when you try this also to make sure your switch is good disconect the wires at the moter turn on the heater and see if you have voltage you can use a test light or a multimeter on dc
