You need to find out why they arent running. First check the blade and see if you can spin it freely, if it binds when spinning then replace the motor. You can check for power at the fan with a te4st light to see if it gets power when the ac is on. Place test light across the 2 wires at the cooling fan and see if it lights.

We checked the fan blades they spinn freely and we hot wired and the fans will run. We replaced the Constant Control Module 2yrs ago because the fans would not quit running. Could this be the same problem? We called the dealer we bought the module from he said they quit selling these. Now what should I do?
Thank you

Most likely thats what it is. Ford still sells them, I replace them all the time. If not try a junk yard, they will have it.

Thank You Masterechtim! It was what you said, the central control module. They had quit selling the other brand. It was listed as a different thing. Sold by a different company. Praise the Lord, I thought I was going to have to go in debt for a new car.
