Hi..there sorry for the delay..


I note you do say you have had the system pressure tested which is good as long as it has come back as normal with no issues - in that case it more than likely going to be electrical in regards to possible issues with the fan relays/resisitor block or wiring to it..firstly anyway check out the relays which are located on the fan shroud or the left behind a long plastic panel held with the 2'll need to shift the front grille - you'll notice the wiring harness coming in underneath then up behind the panel the relays are behind this 2 of them/resistor is right at the bottom..double check these havent suffered with corrosion..the next port of call would be the temp sender/switch.could be giving out false reading bringing the temp guage up and allowing the fan to switch..but as above maybe check out those relays..I do hope this helps
