Just got my car back from the panel beaters today after I have a collision with a kangaroo at 80ks, car looks and drives beautifully its only after I got home and got out of the car I noticed the fan was still on.. Turn the car back on then off again and it went off straight away so I ignored it for tonight, I didn't get to check the temp gauge even though I should have but just wondering if anyone has ever had this problem before?

Hold in what button sorry? Trip?
EDIT... Is this for a VT as listed as your ride?????
As you are in the VE Section.
Or have I written all this for nothing????

With the ignition off, hold down the Mode and Up Arrow buttons.
Turn ignition to "On".
Release the buttons and start the car
This will give you additional information on the led Odometer/trip window, such as...volts, fuel remaining, litres used per hour, engine temperature, vehicle speed etc.
To scroll through the different information, press the Mode button.

Holding down the Mode and Down Arrow buttons, use the same procedure as above, except wait for a beep before releasing the buttons. This will also give other information. Half of, which I have no idea what it is.

When the car is turned off, the display will revert back to the original information.
To revert back to the normal settings while the car is running, press both the up and down arrows together.
It is not possible as far as I know, to change the display while the engine is running.

Most modern cars do this, especially when the car is hot be it because of the climate or being given the berries. In fact, some cars will even turn on the fan when the car is locked just to ensure things aren't getting too hot & bothered.

Being winter, unless you've been driving it hard & not allowing it some cool down driving / idling before shutting it down, it does seem a bit out of place.
