Radiator fan problem

So I posted this morning about having some electrical issues. I unplugged the battery, waited a few minutes, and reconnected it. Problem solved...

Then I noticed that the radiator fan wasn't running although the engine was. I pushed the accelerator and it would run for a little bit and then stop. Sometimes it would start up while sitting in idle. Anybody have any idea what the deal is?

I tend to splash through puddles at every opportunity and was wondering if I had managed to get water inside the fan's housing and jacked it up somehow. Anybody have a clue what's going on, or is this just normal?

Depending on the engine temp it sounds normal.

That's kind of what I suspected with there being no coolant overflow and the temperature gauge wasn't climbing above normal.

Was the fan off when the engine was cold and you first started it? Then as the engine warmed up the fan cycled on and off?

That is normal....the fan should cycle off and on as needed.
