The first thing to check with the fan situation, is the connectors at the fan. Make sure they are tight and maybe even remove and replace them a couple times in case there'* some corrosion on them. Visually check all the fan wiring for damage. Then, check all fuses.

i did check the fuses, they looked fine. i checked the ones under the hood as well as under steering.

Ahhh 95 with fan issues. Been there..done that.

Check the relays in the maxifuse center under the hood. One is for the fans and the connections can be lightly corroded. Pull out, lightly apply dielectric grease..then put in and out 5 times. Leave in and test.

Your wire colors may differ for a 95, but you should be able to see where the relays are in this pic.

Yeah, but the fix is sooooo much cheaper than taking it to a mechanic/dealer, now isn't it?
