Am i supposed to have an electric fan??

Thought i had resolved my overheating issues on this car that i just bought...98 528i automatic. Bled the system and she was staying right at 12 o clock on the temp guage, can go for 30 minute drives at all speeds and it doesnt go up in temp. And then randomly sometimes when its just sitting there it will spike in temp....This car has a pulley driven clutched fan but is it supposed to have an electric fan mounted in front too??? btw the AC doesnt blow cold... I found a 4 wired plug that doesnt go to anything that looks like it could have plugged into an electric fan.

Yes, it should have elec fans too... Yours is the M52 engine like mine...
The clutch in the mechanical fan may be failing also...
Just a thought !
