Before taking anything apart, I'd try the I/O Test Modes menu in Tuner Studio and see if turning on and off LED D16 lights up the ALED and/or runs the fan. Depending on where the fan relay is getting power, you might need to enable the fuel pump relay first.

edit: nevermind, you're talking MicroSquirt, not MegaSquirt. MicroSquirt drives the ALED pin with a 3NV04D mosfet driver - 8pin surface mount chip. It might be replaceable by someone with surface mount rework equipment. I'd check the wiring first.
Wiring good, if I ground the wire headed to microsquirt fan comes on.
No way I can do surface mount, hands too shaky, but surely someone can
