Welcome to the forum! Sorry to hear you've been having issues.

Have you had the negative cable for the battery addressed?

Thanks And no i havent had the negative cable addressed
I'm not saying that's what the problem is, but it would be a good idea to make an appointment to have that taken care of. Print that special coverage sheet off and take it in to the dealer with you.

Is your car displaying any check engine lights?

Is the outside temperature sensor showing the correct temp?

Did a rock hit the condenser? Still show a charge on the low side?

I'm not sure as the fan will run until the pressure in the system dictates that it's needed. Meaning, you need to focus on the clutch, not the fan.

One thing that does happen a lot is the resistor for the low and/or medium speed for the fan burns out. But what happens there is that eventually the fan goes into "jet mode" to cool things off. If it gets bad enough to turn off the A/C, it will tell you about it.
