    Evening all,

    After a trip to London and back last weekend, every time I turn the engine off and get out now the main radiator fans start running..

    Any suggestions as to why it has started doing this out of the blue?

    Cheers

    Steve

    Check your coolant temp sensor. This could be faulty or have become disconected.

    When I had this issue with mine after the engine rebuild it was something simple like the plug put on the wrong way round I think.
