2000 impreza - radiator fan stopped working

I have 2000 Impreza outback sport. I am a total noob here. Yesterday it seems my radiator fan stopped working. After the car had warmed up I could smell a faint burning smell. Then I noticed the fan was not operating. I did the usual diagnostic test with the green wires plugged and the fans turned on. The check engine light is not on. What could be wrong here? Is is the sensor? I could not locate the sensor at all. After reading thru many posts I am still unsure as to where it should be located.

I have not tried reading the ecu code yet. Will do that in the morning. I was thinking of buying a code reader. What is the best option? I am confused here too. Cannot figure out which cable, which company. Is it OBD2? Can i use tactrix cable? Which software. I have a laptp with USB port.

Thanks for any help.

1) do you have power going to the fans?

2) coolant temp sensor?

3) with your description of a burning smell, could be a burnt up motor?

4) which fan quit? (driver side or pass side) - do either of them work?
