Have you replaced engine temp sensor and Engine Coolant temp sensor yet? Fan switch is usually activated by temp.

Thanks guys The probe is inserted in the radiator, are ya'll saying to replace the temp sensor at the intake? I have also hot wired the fans to be sure they will run, everything seems ok there. Thanks, Moparx2

I have never seen a temp probe that goes in the radiator fins, most of the current probes usually go in the hose that carries the hot coolant from the thermostat. The sensor in the intake is for the engine controls, and the other is a sender for the gauge or light
