05 OVER HEATING AT IDLE. FANS NOT KICKING ON

2005 Ford Freestyle • 100,000 miles

I drive the car around and temp is fine. If I stop and let idle for a few minutes, it over heats. The fans are not kicking on while ideling. I checked the 60 amp fuse and it is working ok. If I turn on the AC the fans come on.

Have you tried swapping the fan relays around?

I can't find the fan relays. And there is no repair manual at autozone or pepboys for this car.I did however replace the temp sending unit today on the advice from my local ford parts center. That didn't work. Waste of 40 bucks. Can you tell me where relays are?
