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

Fan continues to run when I turn off my car. It didn't do it until March & my mechanic has changed out several things on the car but it still does it. Runs my battery dead
After having my battery replaced, I noticed my engine light was on and my fan was running "hard". It also runs for 10 seconds after my car is turned off. Diagnostics stated "cooling system malfunction".

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.

I am having a similar problem with my fan...
I noticed in the summer of 2013 only 1 of the 2 fans were running.. So I decided to order a new fan! Had it installed by PepBoys... This was early 2014.... Since then, my fan kicks on after my car is turned off! If I get out of my car, & lock it, & the fan doesn't turn on, as soon as I unlock the car, & open a door, the fan kicks on. It seems to be getting worse, & the Volkswagen dealership can not find the problem. They replaced the entire fuse box under the hood (because my wheel well cover was ripped off of my car, & salt got in a did some damage). Thinking that was the problem, but it didn't work!! I need help, & am out of options. (They said possibly the ECM, (Engine Control Module) but was not sure that would even solve the issue!
