When the car cools down, you should check the coolant level. In addition, check to see if there are coolant leaks under the radiator. Check the big black radiator hoses for leaks as well.

I checked the coolant and everything is good but I noticed only one fan comes on but

What if I hook them up direct or to a switch will that make the fans turn on??

Possibly low on coolant and/or air in the system or coolant leak. If not then replace the radiator and thermostat.

The fans are wired to a thermostatic switch that come on after it reaches a preset temperature. Bypassing that could kill the battery.
