I've not looked at Steve's links yet, but unplug your fan and hook it directly to a battery (pull yours and take it up front or just jump from another car if you don't have a spare).
If it spins, problem is upstream. If not, you've found your problem.
Keep us informed, please.

Didn't mean to step on any toes...like I said, I hadn't read the links. I removed the shield, unplugged the connector and tested the motor. It was shot. Larry at APE sent me one so that I was able to make the Tulsa convention on 2 day notice.

I have a bunch of jumper leads with assorted ends that makes 12V diagnostics pretty handy. I did little alligator clips to put the juice to the motor.
The manual motor spin test is primal. On an isolated (non-grounded except by wires) I like to test from the module/motor back.
Sometimes everything goes South and I get advice from the AlfaBB.
