How about on a hot day with the A/C on?? Park the car, let it idle and see if the fans come on when it gets hot. If not you either have bad fans or a bad temp switch for them. They are very important and an overheat, even once can cost many times the price of fixing the fans.

Stop Yelling, typing with your cap lock on is the same as yelling...

Do the fans spin freely by hand? The one fan is run off of a belt from the other one. Turning the AC on should tell the fans to start to turn. They have a regulator that controls the fan speed that could be bad.
