    Fan doesn't switch off?

    The cars only 2 weeks old and this is my first problem or is it Normal?
    Since about 40 miles ago my fan stays on (front of car), I've not been in any traffic and the fan cuts out straight away when car is turned off.
    When driving slowly the sound of my car has totally changed.
    Also when starting the engine the fan immediately fires up, this must be a problem. HELP please

    Re: Fan doesn't switch off?

    My '99 996 has always had the same issue with the rear fan starting up for a few minutes after first turning on the car. It doesn't stay on forever and it's not a problem. Not sure why it does it though - maybe something emissions related because it's at start-up?

    thanks jeff, what I cant understand is the fan hasn't done this before and now doesn't seem to turn off? also apart from the noise the car seems perfectly OK and drives as before, as you say maybe its an emission thing.
    Do you reckon its worth a trip to my dealer?

    Re: Fan doesn't switch off?

    The only time I notice mine coming on is at idle when the engine reaches a certain temperature.

    Re: Fan doesn't switch off?

    Here is a little bit of info about this subject from the owner's manual:

    "Engine-compartment blower,
    radiator fan
    The radiator and radiator fans are in the front of
    the car.
    The engine-compartment blower is mounted on
    the engine compartment lid.
    Warning!
    Risk of injury.
    After the engine is switched off, the enginecompartment
    temperature is monitored for
    approx. 30 minutes.
    During this period, and depending on temperature,
    the engine-compartment blower
    may continue to run or start to run.
    f Carry out work in these areas only with the engine
    off, the ignition off, and exercise extreme
    caution.
    Risk of injury. The radiator fans in the front
    end of the car may be operating or
    unexpectedly start operating when the
    engine is switched on.
    f Carry out work in these areas only with the engine
    switched off."

    I Started up the car this morning and drove to the office with 2 stops on route (10-15 minutes between stops) and again the fans do not turn off, It must be a problem.
    I'll contact my dealer and post any news

    Re: Fan doesn't switch off?


    Phoned service dept, they've not heard of the problem before but think it might be a relay. I'm taking the car in tomorrow and will post the outcome
