That is normal cooling fan operation. the fans are computer controlled and not turned on until the engine reaches the pre programmed temperature, that is about 185-195F

How you know if you need a cooling fan relay

If your cooling fan is running all the time or if the cooling fan does not turn on when engine temperature is at normal or higher than normal temperature. It is possible in cold weather the fan may not turn on often.

Cooling fan continues to run after engine shut off.

The fan runs for a short time, after ignition off, to continue to cool the hot engine.

Engine fans come while driving then after a little while they go off and that happen every so often.

This should be normal operation of the fans they do not run all the time as most people think as the engine temperature increases the fans will come on to help cool down the engine once the temperature decreases then the fans will cut off and it will continue to cycle that way there is nothing wrong with that its normal. You will notice however that when you turn on the A/C the fan will turn on and stay on till you turn off the A/C this is also normal some vehicle have two fans one for the A/C the other for engine cooling unless your engine is getting too hot then they will both come on but normally one is for the engine cooling the other for the condenser A/C and this one will only come on when the A/C is running.

I'm not familiar with your car exactly, but usually the second fan is the air conditioning fan. Turn off the a/c, and see if this causes the fan to shut off.

the electric cooling fan for the radiator will not turn on when the engine reaches normal operating temp, its only supposed to come on if the engine temp goes over the normal temp. (around 220 degrees)
it is normal for the fan to come on any time the a/c or defroster is turned on.
