The cooling fan will stay on if the sender has an open, or the wiring to the sender is open, or the control module has a fault, this is known as fail safe so you don't fry the engine, make sense? you need to run a self test for fault codes, Kragen will do this free.

The seller drove the car without knowing both engine fans were off we opened the hood the car was very hot she said it's never overheated on her and the temp gauge was halfway

The fans are normally thermostatic - which means they only operate above a certain air temperature. If the air coming across the radiator is below a pre-determined temperature, they will not operate.
If the temperature gauge was only half way they may not have reached the required temperature to turn on.
When you are travelling the movement of the car usually provides enough air across the radiator to keep it cool enough - when you stop and they is no moving air, the fans will normally come on then.

Cooling Fan running

check your coolant level for anti freeze strength and also check your thermostat is opening fully, to do this take out the thermostat and place it in a bold of hot water you will see it closing then place it in a cold bowl of water an you should see it opening, Also check your temp sender for a few bucks you may as well change it out though.

I have a 2007 colorado LS w/2.9L and it is running warmer than it used to. It used to run between the 1/4 and the 1/2 mark on the temp gauge but now rides above the 1/2 mark even though I have replaced the...

All that. The mechanic should have put your truck on a computer that will read what the temp is. It would have probably read that your truck was running at normal temp. You could have had a thermostat that was stuck partially open causing a lower than normal reading. temp gauges should read about the halfway mark. Seeing how you have a 180 t stat, your temp should be from 170 to 200 this is normal. Find another mechanic, I think you may have been taken.

It's probably the sensor. Read your manual to find it. If not it's probably the motors which can be replaced much cheaper than the assembly, however you can sometimes get a complete used assembly off Ebay for cheap.

Temperature gauge goes up when car is stopped mitsubish spyder with 165,000 miles, convertible

If your vehicle has electric fans on the radiator, turn the AC unit on and see if the fans run, if they do not then you have a power issue to the fan of the motor is shot. Normally its a fusable link on the supply line or the thermo sensor that is the issue. If your fan is belt driven try moving the fan and see if there is some resistance. There should be some. Next if its belt driven start the car open the hood and rev up the rpms and then while watching the fan turn the car off. If the fan spins for a long time then replace the fan clutch.
