Thermostat is faulty.
It can be found by grabbing the top radiator hose and following back to the engine. The housing this hose is clamped to is the thermostat housing. Remove the 2 bolts, and the cover o reveal the thermostat.
It should cost less than $20 for a thermostat and gasket.
Replace it and your overheating isues will go away.

the thermostat can be easily changed from up top, the T-stat is located at the engine end of the upper radiator hose under the flange the hose connects to. Make sure u follow manufacturer's cooling system bleeding procedures when you refill after the T-stat is changed out.

The cabin fuse box is located under the dash on the drivers side and the main fuse box is under the hood in the front of the engine above the radiator on the drivers side

It sounds to me like your radiator fan(s) may not be working. There are 2. Both should come on when the A/C is turned on. If not, then the fan circuit needs to be verified for proper function before replacing the radiator fan motor(s).
