Here is the wiring diagram, click here. Let's start off with testing that fuse with a 12 volt test light or voltmeter.

Actually, here is a better diagram, click here. The are 2 fans, one for when the ac is on and the other for when engine gets hot.

Each relay and there are 5 of them in the relay box should have voltage to them all of the time at at least one spot, on each relay. Test the fusible link 6 in the fuse box, and then follow the wire to each relay and make sure there is voltage to each relay all of the time from he fusible link 6 and also that fuse 8 to both condenser fan relays.

I would like to keep this conversation open for more questions, if I may. Will I loose you andd get someone else if I rate finished? I would really like to get out there and go over these suggestions before I loose contact with you.

No, you won't loose me. I do take a nap though sometime in the afternoon, so don't be alarmed.
