Check to see if you have a short to ground in the wiring from the connector on the wires to the fuse block and pcm. But sounds like the coolant temp sensor on the radiator might be bad.

Test or replace the fan relays under the hood.

Pulled fan relays and played with them while car was running. Now all is working fine. Thank you.
