If the vehicle doesn’t have air conditioning there is no cooling fan relay. If it does have air conditioning the relay is located on the left front inner fender skirt.

either this car at first didnt come with ac and was added later because I looked there and several locations and nothing .My fan works but dosent kick on and though it was the relay

There is a temp sensor/switch near the gooseneck. Your fan motor could be worn out by now too. By now, it should be toast. Mine started working after I changed he sensor/switch. I didn’t have AC.
