As long at the fan stops running shortly after startup, this is normal vehicle operation.

The diagnostics spins the fan up initially, then shuts it off, reading the voltage produced as a generator. It compares the voltages with a table to ensure that the fan is not faulty.

And yes, this would be the E90 forum, the E46 forum is first on your left just before this one. :p
