My 2005 kia spectra 5 cooling fans are not working what can I check to eliminate possible reasons this is happening - I have check my fuses and I do not see a problem with them. It also appears that everything is connected properly. When the car starts to overheat, the fans do not kick on to cool the engine. This caused my radiator to crack.

No, the fans do not run when the air conditioning is on.

Run power and ground directly to them to determine if the fans are good and if so, test all your fuses using a test light.

You need to start a question of your own. This one belongs to someone else.
