There should be a plug or something hooked up to the wires running to the fans. have that checked. i have also ended up straight wiring them before. but thats kinda "rigging" it. check for the plug though that should be it.

I have a ford taurus that the cooling fans will only run when when the ac is on 2002/ engine 3.0 efi/

The cooling fans on this vehicle won't come on unless the a/c is on or until the engine coolant temperature reaches about 220 degrees. Once the coolant has reached this temperature the fans will come and and run until the engine cools down to about 210 degrees and they will then turn off until the temperature climbs up again. The fans usually aren't on at all at highway speeds because enough air is being forced through the radiator to keep everything cool. The true test of cooling fan operation is to allow the car to idle in park with both the a/c and defrost turned off and let it run until the fans come on. When The temp gauge reaches about 3/4 of the way up, give or take a bit, the fans should come on. Keep an eye on the gauge so the engine doesn't overheat just in case there really is a fan control problem but I'd say you'll most likely find that the fans are working properly since they do come on for the a/c. Hope this helps!

could be many things such as a leak in the a/c system, blend door/motor, clogged orphus tube, or an electrical problem in the a/c circut- i usually recomend that a/c work be handled by the professionals due to health hazards and most people don't have the right tools to do the job.
