There are two fans on the radiator.
These come on when engine heated.
When I turn air con on, both fans come on and car runs normal to me.
I believe one fan should always be on and the second should come one when air con turns on or over heated.
Auto electrician says no, fans should only come on when engine is overheated and do not need to always be on.
Does any one know which is the correct way the fans should be working
Do you
have the same problem?

Hey Garo,

When the AC is operating the fans (one or two) should always be "ON" if the AC is "OFF" then the fans (one or two) should only come on when the engine needs cooling.

Let me know when happens, Best, Ken
