A lot of times on the sn95's the fan itself is good its the connection. On my last sn95 i just made the fan manual on a switch because we or a shop couldnt figure out why it didnt work.

check fuse,(look in owners manual or on the cover of the fuse box)mine show on back of cover
check relay,,(look in owners manual or on the cover of the fuse box)
check temp sensor, located on the coolant passage on the intake manifold, right behind the altenator- check ohms/resistance, should change as temp gets hotter.
iff all good disconnect the plug at the fan and check it for power. should have 12 volts when relay makes contact. if you have power then replace the fan. if no power you have a broken/shorted wire somewhere

turn the car on and turn on the a/c and tell us if it comes on. if so it will be your relay sensor that is hooked up to the fan shroud. fan comes on with a/c on and doesn't ever with temp - relay on shroud.

When mine went it turned out to be the pigtail on the connection for the temp sensor on the intake, the wires had broken apart inside the connector. Unplug it and see if the fan runs all the time, if so check the sensor and the connection.

Also check the CCRM, they are known to blow that fan relay.
