Before u do that, u can see if fan motor or relay is working by running engine and disconnecting temperature sensor from the head, this will make ur fans turn on, if they don't work, see if u can hear the relay click on, if not, replace cooling fan relay located in ur fuse box

I don't have owners manual were is the relay located?
