Air Conditioner cooling fan

Hello,
I have a 1995 D90 with AC. The air conditioner fan (the one that sits in front of the radiator) does not appear to come on in any situation. I'm attempting to trouble shoot the issue. The car starts to run hot after idling for a while. Is there a fuse? What am I missing here? Thanks.

Take a spare battery and hook up power directly to the two wires and see if she spins (let it spin for a while as sometimes they go for 10 sec and then die).

If it works with power, it could be the fuse (mine was inline, but I am not sure if that is universal), a relay or maybe even the switches to turn it on (one at high temp, the other when the compressor is engaged).

It does not come on with AC on or off...just dead. The fuse chart in the owner's manual does not give enough detail to tell me if it's one of those fuses behind the gear shift.

Plug a simple 12V bulb in fan connector to know if it's a power or a fan issue. When you turn A/C on the fan is supposed to run for a few seconds.

the test light is your friend check for power at the fan like JFD said then check for power at both ends of alll the fuses with the test light ..then find the power wire to the unit trace it down there might be a inline fuse in it ... if it has power the fan switch might be faulty on the a/c unit ..... i might have a orig a/c install instructions somewhere see if i can find them
