Question Radiator fan runs when car shut off

The last time I had my car in service it was for a check engine light. The car stumbled upon acceleration, and displayed a warning. When I got the car out of service, it was re-programmed.

Now when I shut the engine off, the radiator fan will continue to run for a few minutes. My service advisor says that this is the new "normal." The fan will run every time, regardless of whether the engine is hot or cold. I can understand it running after a long trip, but mine does it even if I just pull the car into the garage.

Do your cars do the same?

Sometimes I notice it running, but I'm not sure it runs every time. I took delivery of a 2010 on 3/10/10. I'll watch and report

My 2010 750i fan runs after every drive. I don't think I have ever not heard it run. At least for me car...it is normal to run after each use!

My '09 750i fan runs pretty long after every drive more than just going around the block.

It's interesting what the OP said about hesitation. I'm seeing more and more of that. I have about 12.5K miles on my '09 750i. The only warning lights I've had were for low engine oil.

Great garage heater in the winter. Sucks in the summer, though.
