See, and like my current problem, I think the thermostat might be your problem...if it is sticking, the car doesn't know its hot, therefore the fan doesn't come on....mine is just the opposite...my aux fan wont shut off and is killing my battery
...that said....running your ac at a standstill on a hot day I think will almost always overheat you...I could be wrong about that...

If a relay sticks in the closed position after the ignition is turned off the following complaints could arise:
-The auxiliary fan continues running.
-A/C – heater blower motor continues running.
-Fog lights and/or headlights stay on.
-The battery goes dead overnight.
-The rear window defogger stays on.
This is due to the battery voltage still being present when the ignition is turned off. Apart from the auxiliary fan the components need their control switch left on for the situation to occur. The auxiliary fan will automatically continue running in this condition.
Replace the defective relay.
Hope this helps you. RIBEMR26
