what three three color wires are black red
and white with red stripe to see if my cooling
fan needs to be replaced or if it got bad

my compressor for my AC to do I need to
hook a positive to the white wire as well

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?
