If your car is not overheating, don't worry about it. It's normal for one fan to run in ordinary driving in city and the other to kick on with A/C. That is to increase air flow past condenser as much as engine cooling At highway speeds neither runs anyway, there is enough air-flow to make the fans useless. But if your car IS overheating, please say so and we can figure it out

I tried to get your owners manual and service manual but the Subaru site only goes back to 2000. There is another one that says it has a 1997 Subaru Legacy manual but my virus detector went off like the 4th of July and had to get out fast
