The fan is not working when I let the car running for a while. There is no code on the cat or EGR only P1491. Is there any other relay or fuse to look up and where is it located? Thanks again.

The fan control relay which you replaced, is it located near the lower air box mount and the frame rail? See attached pic.

If you did and are sure the fan motors are good, I have a 3 page testing procedure to go through which requires scan tool that can actuate the control relay and at least a multi meter.

If the relay keeps blowing, chances are the cooling fan motor is drawing too many amps.
