Sounds like your condenser fan is not running (it runs when the AC is running).
First, check your fan relays: there are two or them in your under hood fuse/relay box. They are the two larger rectangles separated by fuses 16 and 13. The one of the left is your condenser fan relay (the fan, I think, which is not running) and the one on the right is your radiator fan relay.
After that it's a matter of checking the fan switches which involves disconnecting them and connecting them directly to the battery, which you probably want someone else to do for you (although the connector, where you would test the fans, is on top, the fan switch is on the bottom of the fans).
Hope this gets you started on a fix.

My 30 amp fuse to my electric fan is blown in my 1998 isuzu rodeo, will that keep it from starting

1st You should replace the fuse.
If you mean your engine cooling fan, then don't drive it untal it's fixed. It can keep the car from starting as a safety procedure so you don't overheat and blow your engine.

If you mean your A/C-Heater blower fan you can start and drive a car with this fuse blown
Hope this helps mike

Car won't idle smoothly with ac on

You may be low on a/c refrigerant. Your car could also be overheating which is affecting the idle sensor. These two may also be related. The motor on the electric radiator fan of this car is the weakest part of the entire cooling system. After a drive, put the car in park and leave the motor and a/c on. Open the hood and check that the electric radiator fan is clicking on regularly. If it seems to be malfunctioning (worn out) then your problem could be that this is causing your radiator to overheat and the a/c compressor as well. When the a/c compressor overheats, it vents freon (by design) to save itself to save itself from permanent damage.

if the fan electric fan is not comining on, you need to check the fan motor to see if your motor is bad on the fan. check it by running a hot wire directly from your car battery to the fan elecrtic plug.

My car runs fine everythiing seems good, just had a new radiator put on it, but when my car sits running for awhile it starts to overheat, then i start to drive and it cools back down?. please help

Check the electric cooling fan. There will be a sensor on the engine to tell it to turn on. The electric motor itself may be defective, and lastly, there will be a fuse to power the motor. Also, if the engine has been running hot, it may have damaged the thermostat. But from your description, that doesn't seem likely. Hope this helps.

Engine heats when stopped and idling , cools off when car is moving . Electric fan is blowing properly I think.

the problem sounds like it could be the fan isn't working you need to check, let the engine idle until it starts to overheat & check if the fan is working......hope this helps......cheers

Electric cooling fan on ford five hundred not

Check the fuse for the fan and you could test to see if you have a voltage running to the fan when the car starts to overheat. If you have no power to the fan then trace the wore and see if you cant find the problem. If you have power then the fan motor is most likely bad.

Overheats, and wont switch gears at times.

Well overheating and not starting are possibly 2 different issues. Oil is not the cause of overheating. Thermostat, water pump, electric fans and viscous fan are causes for overheating plus the sensors that control the fans. Not starting could be caused by the overheating but most likely its a fuel or ignition issue.
