Did you replace the radiator because it was clogged or broken in some fashion or simply because it was running hot? Could it have been the fan all along or maybe it wasn't plugged back in(correctly?). Check relays and fuses and finally fan motor itself. Check connections first

The radiator had cracked which is why we replaced it. Thanks for the info!
