Default 94 Accord A/C fan

My A/C will not hold a charge for more than 5 days. I took it to a
mechanic and he told me the A/C Condenser fan did not work. After
informing him that the fan worked and the a/c clutch kicked in when I
added the coolant myself, he told me that it actually does work, but
only when he "did something do it". He then said the A/c condenser
fan is possibly an intermittent problem. He claims the fan relay is
bad and wants to charge me 150.00 to replace it, then he wants to
charge 240.00 to put dye into the system to see if there is a leak.
Is there a better way to test the fan relay aside from turning on the
A/C and visually confirming that it works? Or would me simply
replacing the relay be best, then check for leaks? The mechanic
claims that the fan relay HAS to be replaced and dye put into the
system before he can do any further diagnosis. I understand about the
dye, but this issue about the relay seems questionable to me. Also,
he tells me that the A/C Condenser fan should be on all the time when
the A/C is running. It is my understanding that this fan only turns
on when the condenser gets too hot. Any help would be greatly
appreciated as I can't afford to waste $$ on this one.

NEVERMIND. I found a document on how to test the relay on the 94-07
accords.

What relay test is going to reliably show intermittents?
Ones that appear at high temps?

far easier to remove relay,resolder and re-install,and get better
reliability.

And ELIMINATE the relay as a trouble source.

But go ahead and fart around with some relay test.
