DTC P0481Cooling Fan Relay 2 Control Circuit
Output Driver Modules (ODMs) are used by the PCM to turn on many of the current-driven devices that are needed to control various engine and Transaxle functions. Each ODM is capable of controlling up to 7 separate outputs by applying ground to the device which the PCM is commanding on. DTC P0481set indicates an improper voltage level has been detected, which controls the Cool Fan 2 and Cool Fan 3 Relays.
Check cooling fan maxifuse 15 amp. This fuse supply's B+ voltage too cool fan relay's 2 & 3 control side . The PCM supply's a ground to energize these two relay's , the PCM is not seeing the correct voltage that it should be . The fuse could be the problem , an open circuit , the transistor or driver as GM calls it output driver module . The number 1 relay is working fine , with A/C on # 1 relay is turned on or energized by the PCM for low speed operation .
There is a good video on youtube on how this three relay cooling fan system works an how to trouble shoot .

Unfortunately, you've got serious problems. The GM 3.1 and 3.4 engines have a nasty habit of breaking camshafts. For some reason, which I have yet to determine, the cam bearings seize on the cam and the camshaft ends up breaking in half. The engine will continue to run, albeit very poorly since all the cylinders are not working because the rear half of the camshaft, which runs the oil pump, is not spinning.
The blower fan cuts out intermitently regardless
From what you said I would think you have a bad/loose connection. I have never had to change the fan resistor but from what I under stand usually when the resistor is bad the fan only run with the fan speed on the highest setting. If the fan quits working try putting the fan on the highest speed setting, see if fan starts working. Sorry but that all I got for now.

Most likely a bad wheel bearing, or wiring to the wheel bearing. I would start by having it scanned to point you in the right direction. (What bearing to look at). Could also be something in the ABS module.
