    Is it normal when starting the car from cold - for the fan to come on for 20 seconds or so? Pretty loud when its full pelt! But literally just for 20seconds or so.

    Fan only comes on for coolant temperature??
    Obviously not hot so maybe coolant temp sensor faulty??

    Had a very similar issue a few months back and it was a faulty coolant temp sensor. Have you scanned for faults?

    Had the car been left in the sun? So it was hot inside?

    Could be the fan for the aircon
