Hi, fuse 42 in the auxiliary relay panel under the left side of the dash is for the cooling fans.
It should be at position A or B in the panel. Yours being a UK car I should state that the relay panel is under the driver's side dash.

Do I need to remove parcel shelf
Yes you do in order to see it.
Ok I dropped the shelf I can see some relays a 60a fuse and 2 green fuses ?
the green fuses are metal enclosed
Is a 98 model different as my car was first sold jan 98
The big fuse is for the fans. Have you tested the circuit yet?
Do you have power to the thermal fan switch?
I'll check the schematic on a 98 but I have to leave for about an hour. Can you wait until I return?
yes I can no problem its raining like hell here,where is the thermal fan switch ?
The big fuse only carries the load for the fans but there is a 15 amp fuse that powers the thermal switch. That fuse should be under the hood.
The thermal fan should be in the bottom of the radiator.
Be back soon.
I'm back if you have any questions.
