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?

I have a 2013 Malibu and this just started happening to me but sometimes it actually sounds like the car is still running and I get back in start it back up and and turn it off and it stops, other times it's just a light fan sound and goes off in about a minute....never did this before and I live in FL
