COOLANT FANS NOT WORKING

1996 Toyota Camry

Engine Cooling problem
1996 Toyota Camry 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 130, 00 miles

coolant fans not working, both fans do work if air is turned on. Does this point to any particular fix for coolant fans not working? I do not know which fuse or where they are located, for coolant fans. I see fan number one is first fuse/relay box closest to battery, and in next fuse/relay box fans 2, 3 and air relays. Do not know which are fuses and which are relays? Would truly appreciate any help. Not familar with auto repair but am trying. Thank you

Below is the relay. It is a small box type.

Below are fuses. There should be number markings on the top like 5A or 5, 10A or 10, and so forth. Replace only with the same number. (5A as "A" stands for amperes)

Suggestion: Try checking the ECT (Engine coolant temperature) switch for electric cooling fan located at the bottom of the radiator. (either left or right side). With the engine OFF, unhook the wire connected to the ECT switch. Now turn ON the engine, if the fan runs, then MAYBE it is the ECT switch. You need a new one pictured at the bottom with the O rubber ring.
