    honda accord overheating issue

    the engine overheats and coolant starts boiling out of the overflow pipe
    fans only turn on when i turn the car off
    its a f22b1 engine
    i have flushed the radiator and filled it with new coolant
    there is flow on the top pipe so its not the water pump
    looked at some forums and some people are saying its a fan relay issue
    some say i need to bypass thermo fan switch so it turns on as soon as i turn the car on
    can someone help me

    I'd be doing a head check just incase, you originally stated that the coolant boils out of the overflow bottle, which could (hopefully not) be getting pushed out by combustion gas due a blown headgasket.

    Just seems a bit unusual having the air con on would cause this issue, as generally both fans turn on with the a/c?
