Hello there, a couple of different items can cause the fan to not work like this. The most likely culprits are a thermostatic switch, fan resistor, temperature switch, low-speed or high-speed relay, or a wiring issue. If the vehicle overheats, care should be taken when driving to prevent further damage by overheating. When the vehicle has the AC on, the engine needs extra help cooling so the ECU commands the fan to be on any time the AC is on. A qualified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, will be able to diagnose your overheating problem and perform any repairs required.
