In the fan circuit...You have a temp switch screwed on the radiator, a fuze and a relay in the fuze box plus a fan. Swap the relay with another relay, replace the fuze. The other fan should come on when the a/c is turned on. If you fix the fans and it still overheats, you may have a BLOWN HEAD GASKET. ALSO ARE YOU BLEEDING THE AIR FROM THE SYSTEM? DO YOU SMELL EXHAUST IN THE COOLANT?

Your a/c gas (134a) is too low, there is a safety feature for the a/c compressor to "kick off" if that gas (134a) is too low thus saving your a/c compressor from seizing up. Have a garage check to see how much is in the a/c system they can easily recharge the system for you. Keep in mind this is the simplest fix and most common problem from what you described.
