If your fan is not working more than likely it is the coolant temp sensor. It is located just under the cylinder head (Just under where the spark plug wires are) on the drivers side. There is a tube that has two sensors in it one has one wire the other has two wires the two wire one is the culprit. There are two different ones so you might want to take your old one with you to match it up. One has a pointed end the other is flat.
