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.

The thermostat on a 2004 Chevy Venture is changed by draining the radiator, removing the upper radiator hose, and unbolting the thermostat housing. The old thermostat and gasket can then be removed and replaced.
