Check #3 and #8 fuse inside engine compartment and also check fuse #16 inside the car. If the fuses are fine you could have a bad cooling fan thermo switch or wiring going to it. It is on the bottom left hand side of the radiator. Don't know when you changed the thermostat if it is stuck closed it wouldn't heat the circuit to turn the fans on.

Your low fan speed is not working. Check fuse 8 on the battery panel from the link in the earlier post. Wiggle it and see if you can get it to make contact. Corrosion in the fuse panel is a common problem. Also, the problem could be the fan motors.

The low speed fans should come on when the A/C is switched on, so you can check it that way.

Heidi was having A/C problems and in the process of fixing that I found that the fans are 2 speed. One of the fan motors had lost the low speed. Just something to check.
