Welcome to v6z24
Have you checked the fusible link from the starters main terminal? It is the power to the fan relay, if I'm not mistaken.

But about the fusible link, does that affect how the fan should operate under normal circumstances?
Yes, the fusible link is the hi-amp power going to the relay. If it is blown (burnt in two), their is no power to the relay. Thus no power to the fan motor.
There are some wiring diagrams somewhere on this site, I think. I can't seem to find them though. Maybe they didn't put them in when they updated the site? You should be able to find some online though. I would not suggest trying to bypass the relay. Track down why it isn't powering the fan circuit and fixing it would be the proper repair.

Yeah you can get one off a junk car. Note, that in 93 (I think it was) the relays and connections change to a narrow blade. Yours is the old wide blade. Also, are you sure the relay connector is burnt or is that just the gunk they used to keep moisture out? It is hard to really tell in the picture. You can check the terminals for power at the connector with a test light or a multimeter. Just probe the contacts of connector and see if there is power. Key off, as the fusible link wire is hot all the time.
I found the wiring schematics!

Yes, that is true. The fan should come on with the A/C.
