Question about 1996 Ford Escort 4 Door
When temperature goes up the fan isn't coming on it comes back down when travelling at speed i've checked the fuses and there isn't one next to the battery where else could it be wired to
If the fan is electric, the problem is probably the fan thermostat. usually fitted into the water pipes near the radiator.

Check the fluid level in the radiator - after it cools down !
It sounds like you should replace the temperature sensor that controls the fan. This is usually located in the radiator and has electrical wires connected to it. Trace the wires from the radiator fan ( not the air conditioner fan!) to the sensor.
If the radiator is aluminum you may need special anti-freeze to prevent damage.

SOURCE: Here's a wierd cooling fan issue
Thats not too weird as the car would kick on the fans at full speed when it detects a problem with the sensor. Your ECU is not reading the sensor properly and needs to be checked by Ford. I hope this helps you.

Did you check the parts before replacement? Check if there is power supply to the fan when engine is hot and the fan should start. Also check the temperature sensor or the automatic fan switch located below the radiator, it may be faulty.
