    You are correct. I believe there is a fuse/relay that controls this.

    Def a way to do this. Is the car stock? Has it ever been tuned? If so the previous owner might have tuned the fans to kick in later. As long as the car isnt overheating I wouldnt be too too woried, but check it out none the less. Maybe pull the fuses to see if one is out? If not then take it to a dyno and have them take a look at it for a small fee.
