Test the motor by jumping GND and TFA in the diagnostic box.

Both fans are dead? (driver side is the aux fan and should kick on with ac on) I would switch the plugs over so the fans get reversed (primary on drivers, and aux on the pass). That would let you know if its the fan or the wiring, its rare that both fans die.

ummm no only the driver side fan isnt working the passenger side which is hooked to the ac and turned on only when the ac was on is now just there it isnt hooked up at all because i nolonger have ac. i am gunna hook them up parallel. i have tried jumping gnd and tfa and nothing so i tried grounding the fan switch and i here a click at the relay but no fan on. im gunna go put some power to the motor itself by unplugging the fan and doing a direct power to the fan and im gunna see if it is the fan motor if it isnt then i have to try to replace the relay if it still doesnt work it then lies somewere in the wiring so then im just gunna wire it to a switch.
