Default 96 Regal Fans don't come on

Hey guys,

I've tried looking it up but haven't had much luck.
I don't have a wiring diagram or anything to help diagnose this problem.

I'm working on a 96 Regal Gran Sport with the 3.8
It'* been having some overheating problems

I've noticed the fans don't seem to turn on. The relays in the engine bay are good, and both of the fans work when the relays are bypassed. Additionally, I checked that all the fuses in the engine bay are good. When I turn the AC on max, the passenger side fan does turn on and off, but the other fan never seems to turn even as the car is beginning to overheat.

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks in advance.

Check the ECT sensor. If that'* not reading right, the fans wont come on.
