Default Cooling fan question??????

Hi I just saved 135$ for installing my replacement cooling fan for my 03 GT by myself with the kind help of my good neighbor. Its all in fits great and plugged in....its maybe only 2 degrees out tonight...I drove the car all evening well at least to a couple of stores...I put the car in the garage and openned the hood with engine running but the fan was not turning....when does the fan exactly come on...? How can I test it?Is it too cold out? Engine not run enuf or hot enuf? etc

Great job, having a real heat way up in oilier country aren't you. The high speed fan should come on with the AC also.

Yup - turn on A/C, fan should come on.
Stick your hand in there - if fingers come up bloody/missing, fan is on...
