    relays are good. everything is connected.

    radiator cooling fans?

    If that's the issue check the fan resistor and wiring harness and replace both if burnt out.

    Its really not that expensive and minimal tools are required, there are a lot of threads here about it. Look between the cooling fans for a two wire connector plugged into the resistor. To disconnect it depress the metal clip, and pull to remove. Look for a burned out connector, as well as the resistor it plugs into. Contact Tousley Ford for parts or your local dealer.

    Post pics if your not sure

    I ordered mine from Tousley ford and it was around 40. Check the sponsors section and message them or give them a call tomorrow. If your wire harness looks burnt buy that too. I got my harness from the local dealer and it was double the cost.

    my harness looks brand new but the resistor is either rusted or burnt. probably burnt.
    i ordered the resistor lastnight.

    I know what you mean, took me several years to figure out what the problem was. You can turn on the ac to kick on the fans to bypass the resistor. I finally got sick of running the ac at stoplights and drive thru's every winter

    could it be a temperature sending unit or something of that sort?
    i tried it with the ac on today didnt seem to turn on. didnt hear anything.
    wiring is intact. and looks very undamaged.

    someone help me out here?

    It could also be a fuse, maybe somebody else knows which one to check?
