Looking to see if both fans should turn on when the AC is on. Thanks!

Mine seem to always be on whenever the AC is on. Been like that since I got the car about a year ago. I assumed it was normal.

Only one is running on mine and it started getting hot yesterday.... when I had a chance to look at it i just kicked on the AC expecting both to turn on even if the car wasnt hot and they didnt.

^^^ Yes *both* fans turn on at *low* speed as soon as the AC senses a certain freon pressure has been reached. That pressure threshold happens real fast. Then if it rises to a higher pressure (which it will quite easily) both fans are commanded to high speed. The same basic conditions would happen if the *AC were off* and the engine water temp exceeded a certain temp.
Looks like to need to see (with power off) that the fan not running can easily be rotated with your fingers first. If not bound up, it might be time to look at the possibility of a blown fuse or possibly a faulty fan relay for that circuit.
