The fans can cause the problem by drawing to many amps or you have a relay that is not working. Here is a guide to help you replace the fan motors and how to test the relay.

The fans themselves may be bad or drawing too much current. Try turning them on and poking the motor with a long bar. If the fans start, then you need new a fan motor.

The problem is the coolant temp sensor. Bought one and fans come on when needed. THANKS for all your help

That would have messed with a whole lot more than just the fans. That would really mess up the fuel mixture.
