Was the coolant sensor replaced?
It could be working out of range and not working the fans when required.

A faulty PCM would cause the problems concerned.

Was anything done prior to this occurring?

PCM is the engine computer. You might have to substitute one to test.

Did you check the coolant level in the radiator?

Hi
yes I checked, and I have changed the radiator as well

i dont know how the fane second speed come I galant but I had a look at my fuse box and I saw there is relay fan and 50 amp fuse
i already changed the relay, do you think the fuse is defect? Or if I have a bad fuse the fans will not work at all?
The strange isse why they are worknig fine with AC
i can say maybe the AC realy has a control on fans so they are working with AC

If they are working with the AC, it is not a power supply, grounding or relay issues.
This is a control problem issue and since you have replaced the coolant sensor, the next thing to test would be the PCM (ECU).

There is o way of testing the ECU for this problem. You can only substitute one to test.

We can only come to the conclusion that the ECU is the one at fault when all possible test had been performed.
