Asked by Dec 10, 2015 at 07:09 PM about the 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS 3.5L AWD

Fan not running when I first turn on the Sante Fe and its in park.
Do you have to have the gear in drive or driving for the fan to work?

no......unless it still calls for it...


Which fan is that? The heater fan or the engine cooling fan?


I have the same problem on my Kia Optima. Really wanna know what happen...


Guys, as Kelly & Regrets said, it depends on what fan you are talking about. If the cooling fan in the engine compartment, that should never come on when you start a car until the engine coolant temperature comes above a predetermined temp, usually between 190 and 210 degrees. Then it comes on just long enough to drop the temp down and turns off. If you mean the fan inside the passenger area, then there is a wiring problem in the controls someplace like the switch or a resistor. The heater/A/C fan should always run regardless of the temperature as long as you turn the switch on.
