    Same thing as described in other posts. After listening to it run for about 3 minutes, I turned the car on again and turned it off. The fan turned off afterwards. I have a feeling this will happen again until the fan unit is replaced.

    Fan assembly replaced. Dealer said there was a short in the electronics which led to fan not turning off after car was shut off.

    My damn cooling fan stays on for at 4 minutes or more, after having turned the car off. Plus, it sounds like a loud lawnmower!
