96 Mercury Tracer cooling/radiator fans run all the time

Any ideas or advice. the cooling fans (the radiator fan) runs whenever the car runs. On the other hand the coolant gauge never moves off of cold. Can anyone describe the fan system, besides the sensors, what activates the fan, is there a seperate module, or does the engine control unit trigger a relay??
