[DML] Re: Air Condition at Highway Speeds

Should the fans stay on all the time when the AC is on? I somewhat 
remember mention of this in a past thread.
Previously, when my vehicle needed freon servicing, the fans cut on 
and off every five seconds or so, now after service, the fan fail 
light stays on the entire time the AC is running. Is this right?
