    The cooling fan relays are located on a bracket on the right had side of the engine compartment. Don't forget to test the relays for proper operation before replacment. If your cooling fan is not working the fault should be diagnosed before replacing any parts.

    You will need a wiring diagram. You can then match the wire colors in on the diagram with those on the relay in order to find the correct one.

    Before you replace the fan relay,test the fan with a jumper wire from the battery positive post,but unhook the wiring at the fan first,the fan motor can fail and not run any at all if it is worn out.And the circuit may be good from the relay to the fan.
