hello, community, I just bought a jeep patriot 2010, I have working 1 radiator fan, the mechanic told me that's how it works. I wonder if it is true, and what's the other fan function.

To check to see if both fans work, turn on the AC. With the AC on, both fans should spin at full speed. If not, something's not working properly.

It does take a while for the cooling fan to kick on. How long have you let it sit while idling? And is the engine overheating? Another possibility is you have a stuck open thermostat and the engine may never get hot enough to trigger the fan. Our engines have two thermostats, a 173 deg. F (78 C)main stat and a 203 deg. F (95 C) secondary. If either of them stick open it may allow too much cooling.
