96 XJ Sport 4.0L 4wd Auto with code 35

I've got a code 35 which is: Cooling fan relay circuit open or shorted
35 idle switch motor fault - check connections

Which of these 3 do I need to replace? My thermostat, and water pump are new.

#1 http://goo.gl/kF0i79 (according to my vin using the mopar search) ....
this option #2 http://goo.gl/Jr39CM (the relay to radiator fan) or is it option #3 http://goo.gl/NMlOVp

I ask because all 3 are considered fan relays.

***and just to clarify, the second option "idle switch motor fault" would be the Air Idle Control Valve/Motor next to the tps on the throttle body, correct?
