Driving today and the a/c got warm. Then a warning came up and the coolant fluid was one dash away from redline.

Drivers side fan was turning, but the aux fan isn't. When I'm cruising the temp gets close to normal operating temp.
Thinking the aux fan is dead or a fuse/relay.
Anyone have a location for fuse/relay?
Might as well flush the coolant system since idk when it was last done.
Are there any recommended coolants other than g12 that I can use?

Thanks guys
