Cooling fans are inoperative, get it checked out ASAP or you could ruin the engine.

Thank You. You said fans are there 2 ? One came on when I checked.

Not sure on a Kia, cause I would never own one, but usually there is one for the engine cooling and another for the A/C system.

If you turn the ac on it should kick the cooling fans on automatically. Check your coolant and make sure it's topped off.
