Cooling fan

noticed recently,only had the car for about 6 weeks,that the cooling fan comes on straight away when started hot or cold,and stays on for duration..wondering if this is normal? surely it aint is it? will it cause any damage? cheers

souds like you have a dodgy sensor or the previous owner has bridged the connection to make it constant.sensor will usually be in the side of the radiator

put your fuel consumption up a bit and will cause the fan motor to burn out a lot quicker,and is annoying.not a big job to fix plus you want to find out if there was a reason for it if the previous owner did it such as an overheating problem,sensors not too expensive
