I have a EL Ghia with the standard xr6 motor, but only one thermo works (on high only) once the temp hits 105 degrees (i used the ford service odo screen to figure that out) it doesnt run either on low speed, nor cut in when A/C is turned on (unless over 105), could this be the relays???

The fan relays (4 of them) are located in a box behind the passenger side headlight.
A diagnostics check would be a good idea. Grab a Gregory's manual, best tool you'll buy ;)

EL's have 3 relays. and there are fault codes for each.
Pull the plug near the top left radiator and apply 12v to check each fan works.
