Can be ohmed,but the best way is to swap it out with another one,that is all ready in your fuse panel,if fan cuts on it will be bad.

tst is right, just swap it. but you can also unplug the fan and run jumper wires to the battery to see if the fan even works. if not then its the fan, if so, could be the relay, the coolant temp sensor or even the pcm.

IT COULD BE UR ECT SENSOR OR CYLINDER HEAD TEMP SENSOR CAUSING IT NOT TO WORK ALSO DEPENDING ON UR VIN NUMBER IT COULD BE DEFECTIVE AS THERE WAS A RECALL ON THE RELAY CHECK RECALLS FIRST TO SEE IF YOURS WAS RECALLED
