Drivers Side Rad. Fan not Working

Hello!

I'm hoping someone can help out with some possible causes/fixes for this..

it seems as though my drivers side radiator fan does not work.. the only one I ever feel come on (when running & when i turn AC on) is the passenger side one..

based on what i've read on the forums.. the only thing I can figure on my own is it might be the relay and i'll try switching it with the passenger one and see if that helps..

but .. i have no idea what im doing so if anyone has any suggestions.. pleasse let me know!

thanks,
Richard

There is also a small resistor mounted by the radiator that craps out, but can be changed without too much hassle.............

thanks guys, switched around the relays and they all seem to be working.. so i guess the resistor is the next in line..

im assuming I need to remove the front bumper to get at the rads?
