i bet its down on the starter solenoid. GM stuck all of the fuseable links down there for years. i looked at a diagram but it doesnt give the location of the fuseable link.

yup fuseable link d is by the battery

this is power to the fan or fans through the relay the ground source is the fan(s) at this leg

plus a 20 amp fuse that energizes the relay the thermostatic switch in the head is the ground for this leg

so now at the relay you can figure out which powers or grounds to look for (or what your missing)

i tried to keep it simple

I'm pretty sure it's a fuseable link problem. no power on the 10 ga. orange wires to the relays. I bought the relays new anyway( 8 bucks each) one was hit by something busted up some what, to where it looks like it could of shorted the power out.

Found the link. It was the wire type. So I replaced it with a blade type fuse holder & 20 amp fuse. I now have power up to the relay, I'll have to drive it tomorrow to get it hot enough to kick the fans on. Thanks guy for the pointers.
