You need a Ford Helms factory service manual for your year of car, wiring diagram and multimeter. The fan wiring schemes changed year-to-year plus each year had multiple fan wiring schemes depending upon options and motor. Some years have separate L/R fan circuits and others were ganged some with or without resistors in the shroud assy, so information about fan operating behaviors provided by someone with different options or different year car may not be reliable. For example, the 2004 cars used at least 3 different fan schemes. Proper literature will set you back $35 on ebay and multimeter will cost $4 thru harbor freight.

The problem I see here is you have a very urgent trouble that beasically needs immediate attention. You are trying to learn how to troubleshoot wiring and you don't even have wiring diagrams or factory service manual. Even if you bid on ebay to buy the proper literature you won't have it for weeks. The engine may fail before then and that's unfortunate. I'd be taking it to a dealer tomorrow.
