Hi! The fans on earlier Acura’s usually develop these issues. The issue is usually caused by a faulty fan control switch. But may also be caused by a faulty fan, a faulty relay, or faulty fan wiring. I strongly suggest that a well experienced technician inspect your cooling fan to pinpoint which one is causing the irregular fan function.
