THE CAR RUNS HOT, THE FANS KICK ON ONLY WHEN THE AC IS ON. I CHANGED THE SENSOR RELAYS AND THERMOSTAT COOLANT TANK AND CAP, BROUGHT IT TO FORD AND GAVE THEM $800 AND STILL HAVE SAME PROBLEM.

Which sensor did you change? Also, the PCM controls the fans for when the temperature is at specified area, if only A/C is kicking them on and engine coolant temp. Sensor is good then the PCM is most likely the culprit

It's at the right rear corner of the engine compartment, mounted in the firewall.
