Default Code P0481 came on

I ran over a yellow cone that was in the middle of the freeway last night...
I parked and check my car right away to make sure it didn't take any damage, but it did a little...middle of bumper got push in a little.
The Check Engine light then came on....I checked the codes and it gave me P0481.....P0481 says something about Fan Relay or something. I turned on the AC and now the fan does not blow air nor does it turn on when idling. what can this problem be? Would it be the whole Fan Assembly that I need to change?
OR just the relay?
"Cooling Fan Relay 2 Control Circuit"

Thank you friends!

i think i'd be inspecting the wiring before anything else. look at the wiring for the fan and also any other low hanging wiring, such as the wiring for the o2 sensor.

i've rammed plenty of stuff with my car and never damaged the fan.

I will lift the car and check the wiring.
The fan does not turn for both speeds. Might just be a wire came loose or ripped. Do you know the location of the fan relay 2 circuit?

from what i've read, 2006 thru 2010 have variable speed fans. don't know if that has anything to do with your problem tho.

From what I know, the variable speed fan only came with the Turbo models. All non-turbos have 2-speeds.

Here's something to read for your fault code P0481.
