Fan Trouble

hi all,

I'm having a problems with my fans running after the engine has been switched off.

This is running my battery flat!! Could it possibly be the temp sensor?

Re: Fan Trouble

I've not noticed mine running after the engine is switched off, but they do seem very sensitive, the fans seem to come on whenever the car has been sitting running even for less than a minute.

Re: Fan Trouble

My dad had an Audi that used to do this - perfectly normal on that car apparently. Never noticed mine do it, but it does make the fan increase speed when it's been stopped for half a minute. This was a bit of a surprise first time I put it in the garage. I drove up to the door, got out, opened it and just before I turned to get back in the car I heard what sounded like the engine revving. A little disconcerting on that occasion
