5500 with 1611 Fan Error

This unit has a redundant fan system (4-fans possible) When I got the server it would only boot up to POST and show 1611 CPU and 1611 I/O Fan Failed. I installed new fans. They still fail. The fans do not spin. The old fans that failed would not spin either. If you put 5 to 12 volts DC across the fan pins they spin just fine. The fan plugs on the server read -4.3 volts from red(+) to black (-). I assume this is bad. I have ordered a peripherals board since that is where the fans hook up thinking it has gone bad. Any help would be nice.
