The cooling fans are switched as a pair, and will operate at half speed (connected in series) when coolant temperature reaches 98C on rise, and switch off at 94C on fall.
The fans will also operate at half speed irrespective of coolant temperature if the a.c. is switched on and the compressor is running.
If coolant temperature rises to 103C, the fans will switch to full speed (connected in parallel), reverting to half speed at 98C.
The fans will also run at half speed, unless high coolant temperature dictates otherwise, when the a.c. is switched on and the compressor is running, or if the engine management system detects a fault with the inlet air temperature or coolant temperature circuits.
