It is not the fan motor for the radiator. The car has climate control. However, the family added a custom radio and bluetooth.

This is normal. If you have run the A/C while driving, the heater fan will turn on after the car is shut off to help remove moisture from the A/C Evaporator. Allowing the moisture to remain can cause bacteria growth, which is why A/C systems can smell funny at times.
You may see this referenced in your owners manual, but I'm not positive.

I replaced the vent motor and the controller, which mounts on top of it. This should have been a very tough job, but I had a small helper who could make the change when the dashboard was only moved, not removed.
The controller was tested and bad, but we replaced both.
Thanks to all.
