Is the engine actually hot? It could be a sensor. Is coolant overflowing the reservoir? The AC is off to reduce the load and heat on the engine.

Right now it is -17 c or 0 f the engine felt normal, the temp gage was at 0 (COLD) no leaks, the one thing the fan was running constently and it is hard starting..

The fans will run until the problem is solved. That's another way the ECU protects the engine. They generally turn off the AC, turn the fans on and some times send a richer fuel mixture.
