That's better. Now, when you first turn the car ON, with the A/C on, is the fan turning? If not, and you already replaced the fan, the fan relay or the ECM (engine control module) might be at fault.

If the dealer told you the radiator needed replacing, was it because of the overheating, and if they replaced it, what do they have to say about it still overheating? Did they sell you a new radiator for nothing?

Next, when it starts to overheat, does getting up to 40+ mph start to cool it off?

Which part, the relay? (inside the fuse box that located in the engine compartment). Or the ECM? That's the computer in the engine compartment also which can only be checked out with the right equipment form a mechanic or dealer.
