Thanks for all the replies gents, much appreciated! I looked up the 10E but saw multiple forums that said the 10E was for suspension? Perhaps that was on other models? Either way, my fuses were all good. I also checked the fan connector, and the wires looked good. To be safe, I reseated the connector. As for the fan relay, I got my multimeter out but wasn't sure how to check the fan relay with the diagram provided on the component. I read that some auto relays should read INFINITE resistance, and others should read ZERO resistance. Wasn't sure which one this should be, but I got infinite resistance across them all.
The fan doesn't seem to spin very quickly, but once I turn the A/C on, it picks up speed. This may have been the air-y sound I was hearing before.
I recently had the fan out for a radiator replacement, but it's run for 300+ miles since then without issue, so I don't think it's a post-installation problem from that maintenance evolution.
On a side note, I also have a whiny pulley, so if I gotta take the fan off to test it I may as well replace the belt and that whiny pulley. Looks like it's coming from the idler but I'll try to grab a photo.
