If you not the original owner! Make sure someone has not ran a direct wire and bypast your thermostat. If they have, take it to a dealer and have it rewired. If it is a direct wire job.. It is a FIRE WAITING TO HAPPEN !!! It is normal for the fan to run continuously when the A/C is on. Turn the A/C off and see if it then runs when you first start the engine. If so, then the thermal switch may be defective.
