Agreed, newer cars with electric fans usually have dual fans. One that runs when a certain temperature is reached and the other kicks on when needed. However, these cars that have electric fans run constantly when the A/C is on to keep things cool due to the added stress on the engine. My guess would be that the temperature sending unit has gone south or there is a blown fuse. Let us know what you find.

Also, because the engine has been overheating you should also ensure you have adeuate fluid in the rad. Wait until the engine is cool and check the fluid level at the rad cap. Should be only an inch or two below the cap.

I imagine Kurt has fixed that problem before.
