Hello, my name is***** and thanks for your question.

To properly diagnose this a scanner is needed that can monitor PCM data in real time. It will need to be determined if the fan is actually being commanded high by the PCM or if the electronic fan clutch itself is sticking. If it determined that the PCM is commanding the fan clutch to high then certain inputs will need to be monitored such as cylinder head temperature and other inputs that could cause the PCM to see a failsafe condition which would also cause the PCM to command the fan to high. This data would need to be monitored with the symptom present.
