First check to see if the fan motor will run.Pull the right side fairing lower off and you should be able to see the wires for the fan motor ,its a tight squeeze but you should be able to unplug the connection and add power to see if the blades move,if yes then reconnect .next step ,just below that there is a black rubber boot/connection with two wires . it goes to the sending unit/sensor in the thermostat housing,jumping those two wires should turn the fan motor on(watch your fingers)
