fan not working

well the other day i noticed my car was running fairly hot so i checked things out and it turns out my fan is not coming on like it used to. my fan used to start running the minute i turned the key, i assumed this was becuase i have a chip in my car(so i've been told but im not too sure cause its not that fast.) anyways now my fan no longer turns on with the key. i disconnected the plug at the fan and checked for current but found nothing. although since there are 3 prongs i dont know what does what. so if anybody could help me trouble shoot this or tell me which fuses/relays or whatever to check it would be greatly appreciated.
my used to run right at the N and never move but now it gets up a bit past the M.

thanx devan

Well, first of all, your fan shouldn't begin running as soon as you start the car, even if it has a chip.

The first and easiest thing to check would be the high current (I believe it's a 60 Amp) fuse for the fan under the hood in the high current fuse panel.

Who is telling you that you have a chip?

the previous owner told me that he'd had a chip installed, but i do not believe him 100% cause he also said i have a 10% o.d. pulley which i measured and it is the stock size.
