to check fans to see if they run::first, disconnect fan wires at connections for fan. run a wire from positive on fan to positive on battery. then other wire to ground if nessesary. if fans are ok they will turn on. if fans are ok, then I would check for a bad fuse or relay, and the coolant temperature sensor on engine, the temp, sensor should be at or near the top radiator hose on end by housing.
