Mazda 2005: While sitting at idle, engine cooling fan not on…

Customer Question
While sitting at idle, engine...
While sitting at idle, engine cooling fan not on continuously with AC on, just cycles a little bit quickly (maybe for ECT) - so AC not blowing cold while car sitting, only when moving, then perfect. Engine compartment VERY hot(burned hand opening hood). AC regrig pressure ok and engine doesn't overheat. Fan control module? Or a relay?

Hello, I'm Chris. Thanks for seeking us for help.
I am sorry for the delay in getting a response to you. Sometimes we get alot of customers and just can not keep up. Sometimes you just have to wait for the correct tech to login.
Do you even still need help. Sometimes customers seek help elsewhere or figure it out on their own before we get to each and everyone.
I am sure I can help a lot or a little at least something if you give me a chance and work with me. I am going to get an answer to you regardless if you reply or not sooner or later.
If your concern is urgent reply and let me know and if you have anything more you think will help me, to help you, let me know. I work on here normally 3pm-3am central.
Thanks Chris

Hi
Since the fan is working with the coolant temp rising but not for the AC but the AC can work when driving, this means its the computer most likely. It controls the fan for high temp and for AC usage.
You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.
Thanks Chris
