E92 Aux Fan won't start

Hey everyone,
my 2009 328i cooling fan won't turn on and is overheating. After replacing the water pump and thermostat at first, thinking it was that, it kept overheating, so I replaced the radiator fan, and I came to realize that the fan just never turns on. I checked my fuses and it is related to fuse 92. Fuse 92 popped. I replaced it and it started to work again. After a few hours, the new fuse popped. I grabbed another fuse popped in it and immediately upon insertion it popped.

Any idea what it might be, some ideas I am thinking is

the connector to the radiator fan might be backward with the wrong + - sides connected? Not sure if this is a thing.

The battery power distributor might be bad?

These are just guesses, and I'm not sure at all.

Thanks in advance! I really appreciate any help :)

Solved. The new radiator fan was pulling more than 60 amps. Wasn't an OEM part.
