The engine-compartment blowers are mounted under the engine compartment lid.
After the engine is switched off, the engine compartment temperature is monitored for approx. 30 minutes.
During this period, and depending on temperature, the engine-compartment blowers may continue to run or start to run.
The radiators and radiator fans are in the front of the vehicle.
The radiator fans in the front of the vehicle may be operating or unexpectedly start operating when the engine is switched on.
