    Hello,

    I've noticed my radiator fan turning on and active most of the time when at operating temperature. Not sure if that's just the way they are but it's working a lot more then I thought it would. Common? Just the way these cars operate? Forcasting impending doom?

    Thanks.

    If you have the A/C on, the fans will run all the time.
    It does get pretty warm under the hood, but after normal driving on an average temperature day, I wouldn't think the fan would run all the time. Don't think mine did...

    Thanks for the reply.

    After more ad-hoc monitoring, it appears only the fan on battery side turns on. I've yet to see the fan on the opposite side, under the air intake ducting engage. Odd.
