No the A/C will never cool properly without the fans running. Since you can not move air across the condenser at idle it will just blow warm air and also run higher head pressure as a result of this.
I am not sure of the cause of your problem but with a proper scan tool you can actually trigger the cooling fans and check for fan operation that way.
Will the fans ever run with the A/C off but the engine hot just turing on normally to cool the engine radiator? If not I would suggest looking for a ground wire issue first in the fan circuit if the cooling fans are completely dead.
One thing also you can do is just verify that the fan motors them selves are not burned up by direct wiring each fan motor with a homemade harness to see that they will at least run. Make sure both fans are isolated in their wiring from anything when you apply 12 volts to them.
