THE LIGHTS ON THE DASH BOARD GOES FROM DIM TO BRIGHT. IS THIS ANOTHER ELECTRICAL ISSUE? IS IT WORTH IT TO GET FIXED OR JUST TRADE IT IN?

I also have a 2008 and just this week the fan kept running for few minutes after car turned off. Only happens if I have driven at least an hour. Never before has this happened, so is this normal?

My 2008 malibu has just started doing this also, the fans runs when car turned off and also started leaking anti-freeze?
