I use my car at night usually. And when the car gets over 25 mph the radiator light starts to turn on the temperature gauge shows 1, 5/4 so the engine is not almost hot and fan starts to spin I think. It really affects the engine when I get to 60 mph. When I stop, the fan stops. :D

Welcome to 2CarPros.

With the engine off and cool, see if you can easily spin the fan blade. Does it feel attached to the motor? Or am I misunderstanding you and the fan actually is turning on?

Here are a couple links you may find of interest. One explains how the fans work and the other shows in general how they are replaced.

Let me know if that helps or if you have other questions.

Take care,
