Are you sure that the cooling fan is switching on? The fan should only
cut in if the engine gets hot such as when you are stuck in a traffic..
If you have Air Con there will be two fans.
Have you checked the fuses in the engine compartment fuse box?
Fuses 6 and 29 are associated with the air con fan (30 Amp /Green)
Fuse 65 (30 Amps/Green) is for the engine cooling Fan
