Question about 2008 Scion Xd
Problem is that dealer is just guessing about your problem, it could be anything that might be wrong, the fan is controlled by a relay, and that might have gone bad, try turning on your ac and see if that fan comes on, im not sure but the same relay that works the ac is the same kind that runs the fan, if the fan comes on whaen you run your ac i would look first at the relay, car will get hot if this does not turn on

you have a red top thats the problem
read the lit on the battery they are not designed for your uses
if you want a battery that can take abuse put in a deep cycle or a reg led acid but the sealed gell cells are not designed for under hood use in the long term look at the charging cycle required on the owners manule it it self is a pain in the ***

I have the same problem as you, with the same car. It seems to be moisture related. Mine is two months out of warranty, so I inspected the rear wheel speed sensors, like your dealer said. There is a TSB (technical service bulletin) concerning this problem, so Toyota/Scion do indeed know that these sensors are failing. In my case, one of the sensor connectors was broken when the car was assembled, which bent the tiny sensor pin, which broke off while I was attempting to get the connector plugged back into it. I make my living as an electronic technician so I'm not inexperienced with such things. Anyway, rumor has it you're looking at over $700 at the dealer to replace one sensor, since you cannot replace only the sensor. The part (rear hub assy) can be obtained online for $290, plus the wire for $37. All in all, it's a crappy situation. A known problem concerning key safety systems on the car, and Toyota neither issues a recall nor do they extend the warranty.
