Do our Radiator Fans come on all the time or only when it hits a certain hot temperature or something?

I know that with different cars they run on different circumstances.. But what about our cars?

as far as I know they both come on together, regardless if the a/c is on or not..

Also they are triggered by the ecu at a certain temp..

Also.. Stock thermostat opens at 90 degrees celcius..

From the JPNZ manual the thermostat begins opening at 82C and is fully open by 95C. Yes both fans come on together, and they come on at 80C water temp.

you could try a generic thermo fan if you cant find a VR4 one (probably cheaper too)

i had a pair of 12" davies craig fans on my R33, and they seemed to work fine.
