2000 318i se e46 overheating problems

Hi everyone, I'm new here but I been reading alot of posts and I have seen that there are alot of experts in around so I would like some help if possible.
I have a problem with overheating when in a slow moving traffic, when the road is free than no problems at all but in the traffic became a nightmare. First I was thinking that the fan is not working but today I seen that actually the fan come on sometime ( not always, happen as well that the car overheats and the fan is not starting ) , so I start to think that maybe could be the temp senson or the water pump.
I have already bleed the sistem propely ( I hope ).
Also my air conditioning is not working, when I switch it on the radiator fan doesn't start at all.
Is this relate in anyway to the overheating problem?
Is there anything I can do to understand whats the problem?
What happen if I unplug the temp sensor of the radiator?
Thank you for your time, any help will be much appreciate.
Ps: Sorry for my English, is not my mother tongue

If you have a clutch driven fan, the clutch may be worn and need replacing.
