Check your fan relay. Its located under the hood, right behind the passenger side head light. Should be 4 little grey or black relay boxes. You can unsnap them and test them. The connecter that the relay snaps onto can go out as well. I just went through that with mine. The fan still needed to be replaced, so Idk if the fan went out and it blew the relay fuse and connector, or the other way around.
