My fan stops working after 15mins

(2001 Saturn L100)
Dont know why but after about 15mins my fan will shut off and stay off causing the car to run hot. Replaced the fuses.relays. coolant temp sensor. And checked the water pump for leaks. None. But yet the fan stopps working around 15 20mins of driving
What seems to make the problem better or worse? Worse when the a/c is on. Better if the car is motion
How long have you had this problem? 4days

Hello,
The fan may be the problem.

The fan may have damage causing an open circuit when the fan body gets hot. This may explain why 15-20 minutes is all you get from it.

Take everything out of the equation by jumping the relay to run direct power to the fan, and test for power and ground at the fan.

If the fan stops running but power and ground are present, replace the fan.
