If no engine lights are coming on, and the dealership has diagnosed it normal, I wouldn't worry. Electric fans may stay on even after the car is shut off to help cool the engine. Usually there is a warning in the engine bay stating this.

this is normal for most vehicles, it is because the water temp in radiator continues to rise after you shut the engine off. would not worry about it unless it dose not shut off at all. or never runs

I have a question, is it normal for my 2000 Beetle turbo cooling fan to continue running for 10 minutes after shutting down the car? While the car is running, Is it normal for the fan to run for a count...

Yes. I have a 2006 Jetta and the cooling fan (the one on the radiator) runs after I shut my car off. It's to continue to disperse the heat and cool things off. No worries. I would watch it and make sure it does not become a problem tho.

Why does the fan keep running on 2005 jetta after turning off

You are talking about the thermo electric cooling fan, its operation is independent of the car's electical system. It is switched on and off by the engine temperature. When you park, the engine heat soaks upward to heat the thermostat turning the fan on. It will run until the engine cools down and the thermostat switches it off. Quite normal operation.

I have a 2007 Jetta with 40,500 miles and just noticed that the cooling fans remained on for over 6 minutes after a short trip to Walmart(6 miles roundtrip) . I have not noticed it before.

that is normal after shutting the car off. Do you change your thermostat and coolant every two years? If not its time to do so. Then the fans will not run so long next time

Radiator fan spins after shut off

the fan running on could be a problem fan relay or coolant system sensor
manufacturers recommend a timing belt change at 100,000 klms so you will be safe there for a bit
At the 100,000klms mark replace the belt, crank and cam shafts oil seals , idler pulleys and hydraulic adjuster as the seals will be starting to leak as will the adjuster and oil is not friendly to timing belts
it is a vw so maintaining the car properly may get you another 100,000 klms but the reliability of the car decreases each year
best course of action is regular servicing with periodic fault code reading
oil and filter changes every 10,000klms
