Car overheating after slight collision. Sign In

So I drive a 2001 Buick Century Custom, and the other day I hit a road sign. The sign did a number on the right side of my front bumper tearing part of it off as well as mangling my washer fluid reservoir. It knocked my headlight on that front right side of the car out of place but all of the electrical lines are still in place. However there are some electrical lines that have been pulled out but I can not identify where they might go. Now my engine is overheating and I have found that the Radiator cooling fans failing are the reason but I can not tell why they are not coming on, as there was no damage to the engine block itself.
Just wondering if anyone had any ideas on what could be causing the cooling fans to fail.
Thank you!

You probably ripped the wires out. Get it to a shop ASAP.
