Find the power distribution center under the hood and your owners manual will have a diagram for it
if you don't have owner's manual let me know. Failure can also be a temp sensor problem.

The relay is not in the box. According to Haynes (page 3-6) the relay is under the car but I can not see it from the bottom or from the top.I would like to know just where it is and how to get to it.
Thanks,
Frank
