it could also be a coolant temp sensor... fan motor itself or a pcm problem... try to turn on your a/c see if the fans kick in then.

I agree with Chris. Turn on the AC. Your fan should come one by default. If it doesnt, check for power to the fan motor. If you have power, replace the fan/motor. If not, it could be a relay, or possibly the PCM. Now, if your fan DOES turn on with the AC, your coolant temp sensor is probably to blame.
