xx 740i - Aux cooling fan (electric)

Hello: I don`t know what happened to my first thread, so I will try again, with a little different twist. Myelectric cooling fan burned out so I searched around and found a used one. I hooked it up to a 12v system before I installed it. It ran fine. After installing it I can`t get it to work any more. According to the Bently book it is supposed to run for a few seconds when the engine is first started, then only as needed. What is wrong.

Check the relay for it and also the fuse. Search around for the relay location.

The fuses are all ok, but can`t seem to find the relay. Any ideas where it might be. 1(1995 740i0
