A/C condenser fan not turning

Need a bit of help with this one guys. Noticed a few weeks back my HEAT/AC was only blowing hot or cold when the truck was moving. Checked the coolant figuring it may be low. Thing took a container and a half to get it back right. Got me nervous because I didn't show any signs of leaking. Figured I may be losing it in the oil. Checked the oil and it shows no signs of coolant. While I was checking everything though, I noticed my condenser fan wasnt turning on. Checked the fan to make sure it isnt stuck with a stick, never turned on. All connections are right. Figuring fan motor or relay? Would that not working have caused me to burn that much coolant?

I just replaced the fan on my a/ c a few months back. Whole new fan assembly off eBay was about 60 bucks. Its a PITA to get changed NY yourself as I had to disconnect the Duse box and slide it out of the way to remove the old one.

I forgot to add that some of the newer motors have a different wiring harness and you'll need an adapter harness.

yeah, but I had someone lined up to buy it but I haven't heard from him. but I'm not in a hurry to sell it. I'll message him again next and let you know. I think he's east coast so it might be too late tonight to hear from him. I'll keep you posted. Thanks for checking!
