Some of these vehicles have this feature and some do not. The ones that do, the fan is operational any time the A/C control is in the MAX, NORMAL, or Bi_Level modes. Some models provide for engine cooling fan operation when the controller is in the Defrost mode. This added feature is part of the A/C controller function and is aimed at preventing excessive compressor head temperatures. It also allows the A/C system to function more efficiently. Normally after 35 mph when the airflow through the condenser coil is adequate fro efficient cooling. The operation of the fan is controlled by the powertrain control module (PCM), or the engine control module (ECM), through the cooling fan relay. I would check for any wires that may be shorting out through the wiring harness leading to the fan relay. This may also just be a normal operation due to the differences of the same car in which the fan is controlled by the A/C.
