not sure on the heater problem, but for your fans it kind of sounds like you've used the wrong sending unit. is your sending unit supposed to be used with a gauge? if so, it will act as a resistor and only supply so much power to a gauge, to indicate temp. what you need is a temp sensor that turns on at a certain temperature. then when the engine gets hot the unit will switch and send power to the fans. hope this helps.

Have you checked your fan relays. Some cars use a 2 speed fan. The computer will call for low speed first, then if the car continues to over-heat the computer will call for the hi speed. The A/C always gets hi speed. Check for 2 fan relays under the hood.
