Cooling Fans

I noticed that my car's temperature was starting to go up while I had it idling in park. So I pooped the hood open and I noticed that only one fan was on. Are both fans supposed to turn on at the same time?

no both fans do not kick on at the same time . the one on the drivers side is for the A/c, the one on the passenger side is for the cooling system. Most times the A/C fan does'nt kick on unless the A/C is on.

The drivers side fan is the one that kicked on when the car temp climbed, the passengers side can is the one that didn't kick on.

But I will double check the coolant levels

He's wrong. The condenser fan is on the driver's side.

Yea, you guys are right, this dude is wrong. I dug for more info and every place I looked said that the drivers side fan was the a/c condenser fan.

So that means that in my car, the radiator fan isn't turning on and the a/c fan is turning on to compensate for that?

Start by going to the thermostat housing by following the lower rad hose. Disconnect the green 2 wire electrical connector and jump it with a paperclip. If the passenger fan turns on then it's your thermo switch that the green boot connects to. That was my issue...the thermo switch wasn't closing to complete the circuit to turn the fan on.
