I need help with other options to repair my trep. The fans won't kick on, the thermostat was changed, and line was bled. The car is overheating after about 3-4 miles of driving. I've switched the relays, wiper and radiator fans, and they are good. What next?

test the fans. the fan module should have 3 wires 12BK,12TN,and 12YL. Black is ground,Tan is low speed,Yellow is high speed.The ground is grounded to the left front frame rail and is the same ground path for windshield wipers,left head light,left park and turn lamp,washer fluid level and pump motor,also left fog light if so equipped. It would probably be easier to avoid being injured by the fan if you put the car on ramps and make your jumper connections from underneath.

Fans are not required when the car is driving. Only needed at very low speeds or when stopped.
If it's overheating after driving 3-4 miles, I suspect a thermostat that is stuck closed.
