The fan is tied directly into the temp sensor (1 sensor), to test the sensor remove the plug from the temp sensor and the fan should run, its on top of the thermostat housing and has a 2 wire plug. If the fan doesn't run your fan "Relay"or the AC switch may be the problem. Also check the relay for proper ground. The relay is grounded by its case to the fender so ensure theres no corrosion between them. The temp gauge is on a seperate sensor its beside the temp sensor on the thermostat housing and has a (1 wire) plug.
The AC is also controlled by the same system, with a switch added to the AC control panel in the cab, once you turn on the AC the fan runs automatically, if it doesn't again check the sensor. Remove the sensor and dry the pins out and use electronic cleaner spray to get rid of any access moisture. If that don't work, replace it.
