unplug the fans jump power and ground to them. If they run you will know the fans are good and it is a control problem.

If the needle is hitting the H you may have already did some damage to the engine. If your husband did the test then he should know how to jumper wire the cooling fans to see if they work directly wired to a power source. If the fans run jumpered then the fan motors are ok and the problem is either wiring, relays or sensor switches.
