    Hi,

    I've noticed recently that when I turn on the ignition when the engine is either cold or has been turned off for say 10 minutes or longer, both radiater cooling fans are running.

    Start the car and the fans switch off about 2 or 3 seconds.

    After running the car till it has warmed up, if I switch off the engine and then turn the ignition back on the fans are running, this is without the engine over heating at all.

    When fully warmed up the temperature gauge is below normal, between one third and half way.

    No other symptoms or warning lights or messages.

    Is this a problem or a potential one?

    Cheers,

    Ampers.

    Make sure you Aircon button is not left on when you turn the car off.

    I had a good look today and found the following.
    1 - Ignition on, engine running or not, with Air Con on or Air Con auto on, the rad cooling fans go into a phased mode, ie, running for about 10 seconds then off for about 10 seconds and so on.
    2 - Ignition on, engine running or not, with Air Con Off, no rad cooling fan.
    So can I assume that all is ok, especially with reference to post 3 from Ichiban?
    Cheers,
    Ampers.

    I'd say so @ampers, both my 7th Gens act in the exact same way. The fans are off when you start the engine if the A/C is off, and only kick in when the engine gets up-to temp, and thereafter when needed. If the A/C is on then the fans will run from when the car is first started.

    Thanks for the replies,
