Intermittent short in the cooling fan circuit, bad fan relay possible burn't points internally, bad fan motor possible bad brushes or a flying short when running. As the relays and fan motors do fail with some regularity I would replace them both at the same time unless you want to spend the bucks and have a tech check it out.
