CAR OVERHEATING

1997 Jeep Cherokee • V12 4WD Automatic • 162,000 miles

My car starts to overheat only when I run my a/c.
as soon as I turn it off the temperature goes down
immediately. Could you please tell me what would cause this

What type of cooling fan do you have? Possibilities here could be the clutch fan or the electric fan for the condenser is not coming on-

I have two fans. The one on the drivers side is running

Power the condenser fan from the battery if it comes on-check the fan relay/engine temperature sensor/switch-if both checks out-have the computer checked-
