First, a bad battery shouldn't keep your fan from running. You do need to check a few things. Turn the A/C on which should turn the fan on continuously. You should also apply 12V directly to the fan to be sure it will run. Temp gauges in these Escorts fail all the time showing HOT so you need to verify that it is actually hot. Bad Fan control relays can go bad causing the fan not to come on too.
