Why do you think there's a problem is the car overheating?
If you're only running the engine for 5 minutes, there's no need for the fans to kick on.

hi , no its low double digits here in the northeast, formerly when I started
the car and the engine was running so were the fans, now nothing.
I ran the car for over 20 minute today , I turned the car around before the snow
that due on tuesday , fans did not come on ??

2007 Lucerne CXL. and 1995 Lesabre currently, past 1973 Riviera, 1968 Riviera
Defrost on will also run the AC and the fans as a possible answer why they were on.

Maintenance up to date on the cooling system?
What are your coolant temps?
I forget the exact temp but believe it's above 225f for the fans to kick on.
