    NO. Have you tried to spin the fans to see if the motors are locked up? that
    is normally the problem. Do this with the key off just incase it turns on.

    Yup, some models require the complete replacement module. I think you have
    to get the entire assembly

    I had this same problem with my grand caravan and it was the thermostat that
    controls the fans. Its pretty unlikely that both fans would go bad at the
    same time, so you may want to check the thermostat that controls the fans.

    Bill, your probably referring to the radiator fan relay module, this relay
    burns out and causes an overheat condition an will not allow the fans to
    turn on....BUT normally will not cause a blown fuse/fusible link as the OP
    stated

    You cannot use just one fan or you will have problems
