Verified

The blower final stage fan resistor is known to fail. Symptoms are the heater fan speed varies regardless of the setting, the fan will not turn off when the car is switched off, or the fan will not switch on at all.

    Every time I turn off my car there is a faint sound of a fan running inside the car. I would assume it is the blower fan for the heating and cooling inside the cab. I haven't fixed it yet but replacing the final stage fan resistor seems to be the common fix. I'll try that first.
