Your radiator fan has 2 speeds, from what you posted, I think your low speed is NOT coming on.

2008 Silver Steel Metallic, Touring, NA, Sirius; Chromed door handles; lower grille; fog light surrounds; chrome front & rear bumpers strips; Airaid air filter; Bassani duals; Modesty Cover; Autolite AP5263 Platinum Plugs (.040); Crane Plug Wires; NAPA Ceramic pads; Blane hood struts; PTeazer Gas, Brake & Foot Rest Pedals, '05 Rear Step Pad, Stainless Door Sills, Llumar tint, "A" Piller chrome; APC Strut Bar

Agree with Hooligan on the low speed part of the fan.

On the cycling of the A/C, if it's really every couple of seconds rather than about every 30-45 seconds, that should be a sign of the R134a (Freon) not being full (but you say it is) or it could be the levels of the high and low pressure isn't correct. Did you fill it up yourself or have it done professionally?
