2000 SL2
Dizzy Fan turns on too late

I have a 2000 SL2 that I purchased from the original owner. He had rewired the radiator fan to stay on all the time, so I had the dealer mechanic set it back to factory specs. Only now I know why the previous owner made the change. The fan does not turn on in time to cool off the engine. The temp indicator goes to the half way point before the fan goes on. I had the mechanic at the dealer check it out, but he found nothing wrong. One of the crew told me to turn on the air condition when the engine heats up as it will trigger the fan to reach maximum rotation. This does work. The temp indicator does go down to a little above one quarter, but this is not a good fix. Especially in the winter when it is already cold.

Anyone else experience this problem?
