It would be almost impossible for the fans to activate pre-maturely; the relay is energized when temp is certain degree.
If the fans did run prematurely though, the thermostat would keep the engine from staying too cold. If the temperature gauge shows that the coolant isn't heating up you probably need a new thermostat. If the gauge shows things are warming up, the heater core might be clogged or there may be a valve that's failing to open and allow coolant to flow through it.
under the radiator, driver side.
The radiator drain plug on a 2004 Chevy Venture is located at the bottom, left side of the radiator. It allows for the coolant to be quickly drained during maintenance.

I don't have a schematic for the radiator, but I believe the IN is the bottom hose on the radiator, and the OUT is the top.It really shouldn't matter because it is just a loop through the radiator.Take Care,Greg
