ok so your relay is in the drivers side engine bay fuse box, we need to remove the relay and the fans should stop, (obviously and hopefully) then we need to see if the relay is being activated or not by testing the pins where the relay goes, for power and ground, is this something that you can do or not?

here is the location of the relay, you will need to remove the fuse box cover completely, you take off the removable flap then unscrew the cover to access the relays in the back
