First, welcome to the forum.

Second, please don't use all capital letter when posting as that's like yelling/screaming in forum protocol.

From what I can gather in a search, when a problem like yours pops up, it usually turns out to be a bad TIPM (Totally Integrated Power Module) which is the black box in the engine compartment with the fuses and relays. This unit costs several hundred dollars and is coded to your VIN.

Wen others had this problem, instead of spending the money, a hot wire work-around was done to turn the fan on/off manually.

The relays you changed were the ones mounted on the shroud right? Some people get the location mixed up with the first generation. The 06's and up have the relays mounted on the shroud and they actually get replaced when you replace the fan unit.
