this most deffenatly sounds like a resistor problem. due to the fans only coming on when the AC is on. this is a comom problem with our cars. i belive it is called the blower motor resistor but i could be wrong cuase i know there are two of them. one in the dash and one by the cooling fans. you want to get the one by the cooling fans. its not to much $ somewhere between 20-35 bucks. and its not hard to change at all, D.I.Y. do some searching around on the sight with the search feature and i am sure you will find some stuff. but i really think that it is the resistor.
