    How hot is it down ther in florida ? Still above 70 during the day? probably normal operation if car is just sitting idling with no other source of airflow to cool it. Is the A/C also on?(or defrost- that defaults to comp. operation)

    That is a possibility. Some cars are set to default the fans to high speed if the PCM detects an open in the fan control(switch) circuit. Maybe something is not completely plugged in or got unplugged without knowing , when the hose repair was done. Hope I'm on the right track for you. Keep us posted. Thanks.

    sounds like the cooling fans are operating as they should...
