Car overheats, cooling fan?

The other day I drove the car to the store got back and let car idle and got a orange temp warning. Oil pressure was around 230, car went into limp mode. Shut car off then drove it again after an hour around city and again warning sign, during all these warning i can't hear the fan at all, even with red flag. I have already try a/c full blast and car overheated again at idle with no fan. Anyway to diagnose fan? I'm just afraid it may be an electrical issue...


I have already check
-fan harness
-fan fuse
-water pump works

To manually cool off an engine, you turn on your HEATER, not A/C.

How do you know your water pump works? That is the usual culprit.

Just to update. It appears that some a liner rubber piece out of the no where got stuck onto the fan to prevent it from spinning,no more overheats!
