2004 MB SLK 230Kompressor overheating

Engine coolant light on and dealer cannot detect a problem, yet temp goes up to red flag symbol after idling, using AC and driving over 60

-Has the thermostat been changed?
-Are the radiator fans running?

Thanks Oblivion, will check, this is a new acquisition, do not know much history
