Re: fan not working

Unplug the temp sensor on the engine.
The fan should now run continuously with key on.
If not, unplug the fan motor it self and test for 12v coming to motor at the connector.
If there is 12v than your motor is bad .
If no 12v's, then test for voltage thru circuit breaker, relay, wiring, connectors.

Good possibility that your just changed out circuit beaker could be related to your problem....

Unplug the sensor on the head and with the key on (engine doesn't have to be running) the fan should run non-stop...

Try this and let me know what you find out...

I had a bad place in my wire and had to rerun a complete new wire from the breaker to the fuse box. Could be the issue also.

There is a greenish and a black wire running to it if i remember right. It comes out of a pigtail under the front box. Remove the tray and you'll see it. Maybe try swapping the relay to see if that's the issue. They are all the same.

I would start by going back to the circuit breaker that just got replaced and confirm voltage is going thru the new breaker. Test with volt meter on both sides of circuit breaker.

Re: fan not working

Put 12 volt from the battery to one wire on the fan and ground the other wire if the fan doesn't work, it's the fan...
