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 2000 s40 volvo turbo runs hot and the fan stays on after shut off


fans are designed to run on after you shut engine down as engine temperature rise after switching off . running hot could be caused by the top hose having gone soft when you rev the engine the water pump sucks the hose flat stopping the coolant flow or the radiator is blocked and need flushing out

Cooling fans continue to run when engine is shut off


This is normal. Cooling fans today are not turned by the fan belt but are run by an electric motor. The fan continues running until the coolant temperature is reduced

The car runs great but when I shut off the engine the fan continues to run. How can I get it to shut off?


The fan is controlled by a thermostat, it will (should) shut off by itself after a few minutes, after the engine has cooled down a bit.

If it continues to run after about ten or fifteen minutes (i.e., it does not shut off at all, and will run the battery down if you leave it overnight), then most likely the fan relay is sticking on, and should be replaced. Less likely is that the fan thermostat is bad.

But if it turns off by itself after about five minutes, this is normal and desirable, it gets some of the excess heat out of the engine.

The fan wont turn off on my 1997 catera


wait 10 minutes after you shut the car off - then remove the negative side of the battery - wait 30 minutes then reinstall and run the car 30 minutes.
If your cooling fluid is full and other cooling systems are in place and working - you should be fine.

The fan on your cooling system is made to continue to run once the engine is shut down if it is running a little [ or a lot] hot. So don't panic if it runs 5 minutes after you shut the car off.

The fan won't shut off after turning off the car. Takes About 12 minutes it will finally turn off. 2000 VW golf.....2.0 ltr VW replaced the ''module'' but that did not solve the problem. The VW dealership...


That fan is to cool the engine. It is normal for it to continue to cool after the enging is shut off and operates much longer in hot weather than in cold weather. If you think it is cooling to long before shutting off I would check the cooling system to see that it is operating correctly. If no and the engine is overheating somewhat that is why the fan runs longer.

Turbo maintenance


If you let the car idle when you stop driving it gives the car time to recirulate fresh oil through turbo bearing , since the turbo gets extremely hot from the exhaust side (and spins at very high speeds) you really should also run full synthetic oil on turbo cars to extend turbo life.regular motor oil tends to burn and carbon up in turbo bearing and causes premature turbo failure .
