I had a problem similar to this. The cheap fix is to replace the Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor. This will have two wires that come into a wiring harness located near your thermostat housing. It sounds like there is a problem with your sensor to PCM operation. This would cause your fans not to operate when the coolant was reaching temperature. If this doesn't fix the problem, I would look into a new PCM (mine ended up being the PCM itself).
