Default cooling fan issue need help

I have went through as many searches as i can think of for this issue with no results, so hopefully someone can help.

I have a 2003 PT Cruiser with turbo 2.4L Dream Edition. It was overheating about once a month. I finally found the leak, which turned out to be the top radiator hose goose neck, which is a separate bolted on piece of the radiator. Since the parts department at a Chrysler dealership not only had no clue what I was talking about, nor did their system even show the part on their diagram, I had to purchase a new radiator, that does not have this feature.
Changed out radiator with the new one. Now this is where my the problem began.
Fan was working just fine before the the new radiator was installed. Afterwards, you can see the fan blade twitching like it's trying to come on, but it doesn't. I have spun the fan blade, so it is not locked up. Car is now overheating because the fan isn't coming on.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The turbo cars fans are 100% DIFFRENT than the non turbo and are like WAY expensive Id say some how a wire got broke or is loose or maybe the brushes are shot maybe you can pull the fan and inspect the motor maybe even forna rebuild kit usally on the non turbo the fan is like $89 at rock auto your being a turbo is over $250 pull it and inspect it if all looks good put it back making sure all conections are tight
