Default radiator and a/c fans don't work

Well first off the car is a 1993 impreza L with the stock 1.8l. I first found out that the fans don't work when I got the car stuck in the snow. It had the whole engine bay filled with snow and must have got a little hot apparently because the overflow tank was pretty full. Well the fans were packed with snow so I cleared them and turned the a/c on but no fans come on. Hmmmm I did hit a deer with the car and it busted out one of the headlights and pushed back the core support some and poked a whole in the a/c condensor. So the first question is, will the a/c fan come on even if the compressor doesn't kick on? Also I assume the radiator fan doesn't work either because it seemed to over heat some when it was packed full of snow.

I did a little bit of investigating today. I turned the a/c on and checked the connector for the passenger side fan with a test light and got nothing. Then I hooked up the drivers side fan up to the battery with a couple testing wires. The fans have a 3 wire plug, but I thought the fans would run buy hooking up a power and a ground. But I got nothing.

I'd like to figure this out before it gets hot outside.
