both cooling fans have stopped working. could this be a bad fuse or switch?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Willie, Yes, this could be a faulty fan relay, typically if you have a blown fuse, it may be due to the relay.

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear Willie, I would check the fuse first. If the fuse is good you can try disconnecting the connector at the fan and checking for power. If you're not sure how to do this you may be better off having a technician check it out. Lori Johnson
