Should my cooling fans stay running all the time and therefore I do not get enough heat inside the car? Is there a relay or sensor and where are they located, how do you check them. I just recently changed my thermostat twice so I know its not that.

Second condition Computer receives a temperature signal from Coolant temperature sensor and when it reaches a certain temperature it activates a relay that turns on cooling fans.
