    Hi All

    Newbie here and new to cupra, my fans seems to come on a lot after a journey is this normal.

    Fans seems to be on after completing a normal journey drive of about 30mins at average speeds of 40 around town, after stopping and turning off engine fans are on for about 5mins. haven't checked temps reached yet for the kind of journey

    I used to worry about it but it’s normal cooling for the engine.

    There are times it doesn’t come on and other times it does. I had concerns initially but don’t worry about it now.

    My old FR 184 TDI was the same, and so is the Golf R i have on loan at the moment, I think its just to keep the temps down when you are running if its hot outside, and then to help the car cool down once you park. Its normal.

    It helps with turbo unit cooling.

    Thats a good point, thinking about it, of my last 5 cars, 4 were either TDI or petrol Turbo, and all 4 ran the fan after turning off, the only one that didn't was lacking of the turbo...... plodding along... lol
