560sl overheating

I have noticed that at idle with the AC on my car tends to run hot..the temp pushs max but as soon as I start to drive it comes back down. It seems to be worse on hot days. I noticed the secondary fan(the one in front of the radiato-the small plastic one) doesn't run..or at least I have never ever noticed it running in the past two years that I've owned this car...Would this be the reason that the car tends to overheat at idle? Is there a fuse or something that could have broken causing the fan not to work?
Thanks for you help.
