The temperature switch, the relay, the motor itsself has gone bad.

Did you do ANY research? Did you check for voltage at the fan and work your way back? What happens when you turn on the A/C?

first thing you should look at are the fuses.

Turn on the AC like ej1995 said, they both should turn on.

google images returned this 2001 diagram for the engine fuse box. You need to check the condenser and cooling fan fuses if one of the fans doesnt turn on with the AC on.

It's probably the Steering wheel- seat interface

Check the fan temp switch first. They like to go bad on Hondas.

Buy a voltmeter or you have no way of diagnosing this. The only thing you'll be able to do is blindly replace parts.

Tell me why it matters whether the compressor kicks in or not? If you can't answer that question(which I'm guessing that you can't), you should maybe find yourself a reputable repair facility...

you can always run your own basic power and ground wiring to the fan and hookup a toggle switch and mount it into the dash,
heres a good/helpful link for diagnosis though
