    Hi.
    Might be a stupid question but I have noticed that there is a small motor by the top of the rad that continues to run even when I have turned car off and taken keys out. Runs for 5-10 minutes after.
    Is this normal?
    Just wondering as battery has a slight drain on it and wondered if this would be it?
    Tried to upload photo but wont let me.
    Cheers

    As the Kiwi said.
    It’s a water pump, I was fast asleep when I posted earlier.

    These cars have plenty of noises.
    Water pump,
    carbon canister ( ticking under bonnet ),
    Pre start fuel pump and many more.
