Default radiator fan switch-Where is it?

My 1998 Accent X3 sport (called an excel in Australia) has a problem where the second radiator fan fails to kick in. If I have to drive slowly or am stuck at lights it begins to overheat. Driving at 60KMh or more cools fine. The fan is OK as it spins perfectly if power is connected to it direct. Can any tell me where to find the thermal switch for the second fan? Would appreciate any ideas and thanks in advance.

yea when it starts to heat up just turn the heat on and it will kick in. or if your electrically fancy just run a switch from the power leads of the fan and you can control it manually

One fan is for the AC so if the AC is on one will run if AC is on and car is running. The other is for engine which is controlled by thermo switch on radiator. search for manuals there is a user name and password on this site. sorry about repost.

1st fan to the left is the rad that controlled by thermo switch and the second fan is an aux fan and will only ON when AC is ON but as they says you can put a manual switch on it to be able for you to manually ON.

prod:
1) ON the AC then at the connector of the aux fan look for the wire that has the positive supply.
2) buy a bosh relay then put and connect the connector 87 on it then the 30 on the battery then 85 on ground then 86 on switch and the other connector of switch is on the wire on key switch which it has a power ONLY when key is ON position
