Hiya

Have you ever had the Air Conditioning System regassed?  This should be carried out every two years.

When you turn the Air Conditioning on do the Radiator Cooling Fans start working? If not then I suspect the issue is simply low gas within the system.

hello thank you for your answer, I havent got the system regassed, and when I turn on the airconditioning the fans dont work no.

Hiya

It sounds very much like there is no gas in the system or very low gas.  Your first port of call should be to have the system regassed.  They can also place UV dye into the system to check for any potential leaks.

Once you have the systems regassed I feel sure this will cure your issues.
