Could be the temperature switch/fan relay-for the idle problem-check the auxilliary air control valve and throttle switch/throttle position sensor.

I remove the relay and hard wired it and the fans worked,
what would the problem be now? Is it the censor?
How do u check the censor for the fan?

Measure its resistances hot and cold-if okay you have a wire problem to the computer it depends how its wired into the system
