I have had the same problem with my 95. Easy fix. Remove the complete fan assembly (not the radiator) ensuring that you disconnect the wire to the fan first. The fan is controlled by a motor which is inexpensive and can be picked up at most auto stores. Two maybe three bolts holding the motor to the plastic housing. Again, easy fix. These motors do go bad but its nothing major. Most likely this is the problem.
Note before buying a new motor you may wish to use a 9v battery and using two wires one to each connector on the battery and the other end to the fan motor.
If the fan kicks on then its good and the problem is a fuse or a relay.
If it does not kick on and you have a good connection between the 9v battery and the fan motor and you know the 9v battery is good then its definately time for a new fan motor.

If your fan isn't running here's a easier and better way if your a/c work's then turn it on your fan should come on if it does then your fuse, relay, wire's, fan motor etc are good. If your fan doesn't come on then test for power and ground to your motor if you have power and ground then bad motor. If your a/c doesn't work then here's what you do turn your a/c on go over by your left strut tower there will be your high low switch on your a/c line unplug it and jump the two terminals together for a few second's this should send the signal to turn the fan on. If the fan doesn't come then test for power and ground like before. If the fan work's either way then your looking at a bad coolant temp sensor. If you replace it make sure you get a brass tipped one and inspect the connector for being corroded if it's corroded then replace the connector too. You want the bottom sensor with the two wire's. Also check in the under hood fuse box to see if the 30 amp green maxi fuse is blown.
