Default 1992 Cooling Fans & AC Compressor not working...correlation?

I'm calling on the wisdom of the forum. I have a 92' LT1 I purchased the car in the early spring and never noticed it running hot, probably because it was much cooler outside. I don't drive the car that often but have noticed in the summer months it's getting really hot. Coolant temps of 250+!! I took it home and have no cooling fans. When I bought the car I was told that the AC needed a charge but upon further investigation the compressor isn't even trying to kick on. Could these two be related?

I looked at the passenger side door fuse box, but didn't see any fuses for the cooling fans? I'm assuming they are under the hood? Could I be lucky enough that these two are related and just a fuse or relay problem?

I appreciate any help.

Thanks!

Check the fuse links behind the battery. I had same problem couple months ago.

The cooling fan relays themselves are on the same side as the A/C compressor. Trying to locate a pic of the engine bay for clarity.

Is there anyway to identify if it is a fuse link or relay without just replacing them to see?

When fuse links go bad you can visually see them burnt. Check and follow the voltage to the relay.
