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 is coming on and off, runs for different periods of time, drains battery
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!
