Dear costumer do you mean radiator or electro fan?

Dear customer, the ideal would be to check the relays rather than the fuses. The relays are the ones that command these components to activate, in the event that it is not activating correctly, it is probably because the relay is not working.

Another problem may be the connections at the cooling fan, many times these connections can corrode causing interference in the signal, it is good to verify it.

Finally, there can be inconveniences at the level of the temperature sensor that is not working correctly, before proceeding to replace the temperature sensor I always recommend checking the status of the thermostat as it can get stuck in a position that obstructs the flow of the coolant.

I hope this info to be helpful, my goal is to give you the best advice i can, I hope to be helpful, if you have any doubt or want to know anything else please do not hesitate to reply back.

Kind regards, Sebastian.
