What it is doing is worth the ac on it s ruining hot. The condenser fan some times comes on. Shouldn't the condenser fan ruin when the ac is on...

What I have done is flushed radiator bled it. New temp sensor fixed the gauge cluster and I in stalled a new thermostat. I need to replace the fan clutch I think.

The condenser fan was froze up and the guide was blown. Replaced fan and fuse. It's always hot when the condenser fan is not on.

Sounds like typical Mitsubishi wiring issues.

Actually, it is a noted issue and your best bet is to install a secondary temperature sensor that will read the coolant temp without feeding the results back through the cluster gages and lights.

Your temp may actually be within factory specs....

The condenser fan does not run constantly when the A/C is on. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe when the fans runs is based on the pressure in the A/C system.
