If the temp gage isn't climbing to the red, your fan systems are fine. Now, if your coolant cap isn't holding pressure correctly, it will allow boil-off. The reservoir may have a small crack or the cap seal is cockeyed. One way to check the secondary fan relay is to run the A/C...both fans should kick on.
