This sounds strange. Maybe someone with more experience will chime in. I'm not certain the fan is the issue here, but maybe just another sign of the real problem. Something is happening when the car gets hot, which also happens to trigger the fan to turn on. The starting of an electric fan shouldn't cause a car to die. I think there is something esle happening there.
