The only thing can be if there is resistance to the fans not giving them a full 12v of power.

So what I should do?
Please note I changed the fans and the fan contoler
another thing when I remove the coolant sensor plug I getting check engine light on the dashboard and the high speed come so I think this can tell me I have no issue with Fans, contoler and relay
and as with AC they working fine this give me an extra point to tell me the fans and controler are ok and the AC relay as well
yes as you say I tested the voltage and I got aroung 6 volt power so were exactly my issue? Where I can find this resistance and how I can replace
appreciate your help and many thanks in advance

If you are only getting 6v, trace the wiring back to see where the power is reduced.

Locate the power supply at the fan. From there, work your way back through the system checking power supply to see if you can locate where the power drops from 12v to 6v. It isn't a fun job, but that is what has to be done. I haven't said it yet, but I am starting to question the ECM itself.
