ok, when the fan was obstructed, it very well could have burned up the fan motor, but it should have blown the fuse first, in the fuse bix under the hood, the fuse 148 is for the fan motor, can you check this fuse?

Is there away to check fan relay other than fuse, fan does turns freely. Just wondering if you can directly hook up Van to see if it turns like you used to be able to send the charge from battery to fan.
