It sounds like a defective thermal switch.

If it is you have two options:

1. Replace the switch with a direct replacement.

2. Wire the fan in to be manually controlled so that you can switch it on and off to suit conditions.

That's a nice low-cost fix then.

Have you measured the resistance across the sensor switch terminals?

Its almost always the temp sensor or the wiring to it. Unplug it clean it up and refit. Its common on most mems rovers. Its a fail safe to stop you overheating when its getting dodgy signal from the sender
