This sounds like you may have a slight drop in system voltage as the fans come on. This may be a result of a faulty alternator or voltage regulator. As you may know, the alternator charges the battery and the voltage regulator regulates the rate at which the alternator charges the battery. If either of these are not working properly, this may cause a drop in system voltage when additional draw is needed on the charging system such as when the fans come on. I would recommend having a professional from YourMechanic come to your location to take a look at your charging system.
