Hello everyone! Radiator fan issue

I own a ford focus zx3, and i have been having some overheating issues! The car runs fine, but every time am stuck in traffic the temperature gauge would go up! What i did first was to see if i had coolant leak, and i had to replace the water pump, thermostat, and a hose that was leaking. I took my car to an electrician and he fixed the problem supposedly...he told me that the fans would turn on, and i believed him. After running the car, i still had the same overheating issue...so i decided to do a radiator fan test. I grabbed my scan tool, plug it into my car and checked the temperature of my car until it reached 225 FArenheits, where the fans were supposed to kick in. I let it run to 227 and still, fans werent working....what can i do to find the source of the problem? What can i check...what relays or fuses?
