1988 Mustang overheating

I have a 1988 Ford Mustang LX with an electric fan. Ive installed a new
fan, fan motor, radiator cap, and coolant sensor, but the car still
overheats. I checked out some wiring that goes to the electric fan motor,
but there is no power, then entire line is dead. I dont know where the end
of this wire is, so I cant fix the problem. My question to you guys is,
since Ive changed everything in the radiator and coolant region, is there
any kind of electric wiring that may need to be done to get the power back
to the motor to stop it from overheating? If you have any ideas Id
appreciate it, also if you know where the location of the electrical
center piece may be that would also help. Ive worked on this car for
years, and this is the first problem that really stumped me.

If it's a 2.3L engine and the electric cooling fan isn't getting power,
I'd suspect a defective CCRM (Constant Control Relay Module), mounted on
the R/H front strut tower...HTH
