When you turn off the engine in your VW Taos, the radiator fan may continue to run for some time. This is not a malfunction but a feature.
The radiator fan run-on indicator appears in the instrument cluster of VW Taos after drive-ready mode has been ended, if the radiator fan continues to run.
Why does the radiator fan keeps running?
The radiator fan may continue running in Taos due to:
- Exhaust gas post-treatment, through particulate filter regeneration, for example.
- Active brake cooling after descent.
- Dissipation of engine heat after high load, e.g. trailer mode.
The radiator fan will turn off automatically after a few minutes of turning off the engine.
