There is indeed a relation between AC(C) and the fan(s). Whenever you put on the AC the fan will kick in. Reason for this is the following. The AC works as a gigant refrig. If you touch you frig at the backside, you'll notice it gets hot. The same appears in your car. The fan takes care that this heat is "blown" away. For that reason it kicks in the moment the AC runs.
