If you have air conditioning, turn it on and the fan should run.
Most electric fans only run when the engine reaches such a temperature that it calls for the extra cooling. Under normal driving, enough air should come through the grille and radiator that the engine stays in a normal range and does not need to have the fan running.

I an not positive on this, but it's worth making sure the coolant level is up all the way so the sensor is in coolant. I have had experience with Dodge where low coolant made MY fan not work/overheating and ended up getting another fan relay for nothing.
