The one big fan is for cooling the water off in the radiator during idle times. While your driving air does that job for the fan. The smaller is for the A/C. When you turn on your A/C it will kick on. If the fan motor is running but the blades are not turning then you might need to replace the fan

Have you confirmed the water pump is working? If the car is moving at 10-20 MPH you should have enough air going across the radiator to prevent overheating in a moderate climate at this time of year.

I have a 1999 Mazda 626 2.0L that is having a overheating problem. I had pulled over and the radiator cap was cold so was the fluid and there doesn't seem to be any loss of water. I changed out the...

Physically look in the radiator under the cap for coolant level, and check the valve in the cap for sticking. If air is present in the radiator it can't get out, and more coolant can't get in,(from the overflow). Either clean the cap or replace it and check that it is the CORRECT cap.
Radiator fins dirty, clean with a strong stream of water, not high pressure water.
Radiator clogged, have it boiled out, or replace.
Thermostat stuck open or shut, replace it.
Water pump worn out, can no longer move enough coolant, replace it.
Fan shroud broken or missing....
Electric Fan(s) not working, Check the fan, relay, fuse and engine temperature sensor's.
Belt driven fan, belt slipping, fan clutch is bad, fan blades have flattened out.

Air dam under front bumper is gone, loose, or broken. It actually has a purpose other than scraping on the driveway or curbs. It forces air up into and thru the condenser and radiator. If it

Coolant fan on my 1998 mazda 626 is not working

Unplug the plug that lives on the side of your radiator and take a small wire and jumper the two wires in this two conductor plug. If the coolant fan turns on, you probably have a bad thermo switch (the thing the plug was plugged into on the radiator) and needs to be replaced. I assume you've idled the car until it starts to boil, noticing that the fan never comes on. If this is the case, that is your solution. Good luck.
