Overheating Cougar

A guy here at work has a 94-95 3.8L Cougar which overheats when the AC is on. HG's were replaced, aside from the "Clean/replace the radiator" what else could cause this condition?

fan should come on with the AC. I think they're only one speed though.

That's the problem, the fan isn't kicking on. Is it a clutch fan or an electrical fan?

no, it will have an electric fan. 94+ had electric fan's It should come on with the AC. If it's not, there's a relay, fuse, or wire that's bad.
